The Ayo Indonesia Foundation (Flores Organisation for Rural Development) works to improve basic health and general welfare in rural Manggarai, west Flores. Projects include building roads so that farmers can take their produce to market and improving sanitation and nutrition. Villagers provide the labour and local materials while the foundation provide training, organisational support and imported materials and tools. Our first grant supported toilets and vegetable gardens in Lolang, Poncung and Rondong. The second funded a pilot project to improve coffee harvest volume and quality, which was so successful it has been copied in other villages with funding from a much bigger donor and support from the regional government.
