When the last tree is cut
When the last river is polluted
Only then people realize they can’t eat money
Taman Beringin Elok is situated in west part of Semarang, the capital city of Central Java – Indonesia. It lies at 10 KMs away from Semarang International Airport, Achmad Yani. This project will be working with local community for renovating garden and mural painting. There are about 50 houses consist of 85 family members altogether living in this area.
Children ages from 2 – 10 years old very often spend their time in the playground during afternoon break. We have the one and only swing which was built by local people two years ago and used by 15 – 20 children in the same time. Along the sidewalk in this area, there is an empty space wall sized 1.5 x 30 m which paint is already old enough. Local chief plans to create a mural painting in the empty space wall and renovate the garden to beautify the environment. In the afternoon, it would be very useful and wonderful to spend our time with local kids by playing traditional games or experiencing local cultures.
