has become involved in several activities which have become
important to us over the years.
This is our way of giving back to the communities where
we have traveled and have accepted us generously.
Anak Bahagia (Happy Child Foundation)
Four years ago,
we met Robin Lim, the founder of the Yayasan. Three years
ago we started carrying her Travelers Journal in our retail
store. 100% of the sale of the Journal goes back to the
Yayasan. We fully support her ideals.
the most significant physical and spiritual event, for all
women and their families. It begins with love, grows in
commitment, and bears the fruit of courage, a newborn person.
We believe that gentle childbirth sets the child on a path
to health, a way of peace. On our tilting planet approximately
1,370 mothers die each day, in childbirth (about one every
minute), most of these deaths are preventable. From our
humble beginning project in Bali, we hope to turn this sad
statistic around. We have found that transitional medicine
and cultural practices in synthesis with modern medicine
can lower the rate ofinfant and maternal mortality."
this travel journal at Terrapin, supporting Yayasan Anak
Bahagia, you provide a foundation for safer choices in health
services. Incorporating the sacred and keeping it simple.
personal project is providing our friend Sigit Sediadi with
the opportunity to pursue an education after High School.
We had known Sigit for six years as he was in charge of
helping to take care of his aunt's guest house (the guesthouse
we stay in when we are in Yogyakarta) before and after school.
We spent quite a lot of time helping him with his English
homework and getting to know about his life and getting
to know his family. His plans after graduation were to continue
to work at the guesthouse, as there were no opportunities
for furthering his education, as his family could not afford
it and financial aid in Indonesia is practically nonexistent.
We decided to offer to fund his education, be it a university
or a trade school, if he desired to continue it.
he accepted and is now a 3.45 GPA student at the AMPTA School
for trade and tourism. He has told us what a difference
this has made in his life. He has made new friends, enjoys
what he is learning, and sees the opportunities that this
education will afford him. For us, this is the most rewarding
of our activities in Indonesia. We always look forward to
hearing from him or his family, and cannot wait to see him
every time we go.
