MEET THE ARTISAN ROZI
Rozi is 23 years young and a pretty smart young man.
His village is really close to the boats that usually take all the tourists from Lombok to the famous Gili Trawangan, Gili Air and Gili Meno. So usually they would live indirectly out of tourism, providing food and supplies to the islands. After the earthquake in August 2018 they were in a similar situation as now. Without any income. Rozi cares a lot for his village. He started his coconut business to create jobs for his community. Rozi works together with nine other people from his family. He always tries to involve as many people as he can. The women usually focus on coconut oil production and the men in Coconut Bowl carving.
When Rozi is not shaping spoons or polishing coconuts, he really likes to play the guitar or go fishing. In the future he wants to be the major of the village and his dream is to get enough orders, so his whole village can work in the coconut business.
When we visited Rozi and his lovely community, we were warmly welcomed by smiles, coffee and delicious desserts (of course made of coconut). We want to help Rozi to achieve his dreams and grow the business.

SARA - PAULO - LIZA - TIAGO
We are all longtime friends, but this is the first time we went traveling together. We love Nature, Surfing, and eating Tempeh so being "stuck" in Lombok in Indonesia seemed like a really good deal for us. On the other side, we didn't know what consequences this pandemic could bring.
We decided to stay!
Everything changed very fast. Within one week, after we made our decision, almost all the tourists escaped back to their countries and there were no more people getting to Lombok. Although we were happily safe, we saw that instantly a lot of shops, restaurants, and small businesses were closing due to the lack of tourism.
A financial catastrophe for all the locals around us. Seeing all of this happening was heartbreaking and we started to wonder how we could help this lovely community.
One day, after surfing there was this local woman selling some handmade products on the beach:
Beautiful Sarong towels, cute shell bracelets, and Rattan accessories. Every Piece was different. She told us that she didn’t sell anything during the whole day yet. “No Tourists, no business“ she said.
That was when we realized it!
We have to help them by selling their lovely products! This is our way to help.
