Welcome to Silimalombu!

Hi, I am Ratna. Right now I am seeding trees up in the mountain where our river comes from. We hope the forest will improve the quality of our drinking water. In the background you see Lake Toba and our small village right on the beach.
Every day in the morning I go to the lake for fishing. The fish is called Tilapia and it is about 1 kg. We give it to the fishtrader to sell it on the market. This is our main income.



<>
This is my village Silimalombu. We are 30 people in 10 houses. Around our village there are about 250 people.



In the morning, after fishing, I work as a teacher. After the school I beginn with work on my farm.

Here we ar planting new trees to get good wood from our forest. This is hard work, then first you have to clean the ground from many bushes, then you have to care for the young trees for many years.

Have a nice day! 
See you soon -- Ratna

  1. Hey Ratnaouli,
    I just signed in your blog. This way I hope to take part in your every day life and to get some impressions in what you are doing and if possible can help you in many ways.
    Your engagement for a better life and ecology in Silimalombu is impressing. I saw this when I stayed with you this January. I will never forget these days and hope to join you again one day.
    I hope your blog brings you friends from all around the world supporting you in your engagement.

  7. Good evening Ratna, hope you had a great DAY today! Sending a warm hello to you all the beautiful volunteers there at samosir...

    I only just recently (a few minutes ago) discovered your project, a project that I/we (my partner Keveen) fully believe in with all of our heart and want to lend our hands, our hearts and our time to. This is exactly the kind of project we would like to get behind and push forward.

    In our exploring of the site, I did not find any email to send volunteer inquiries, but nonetheless I wanted to offer our hands and anything else you might need in the coming months, from planting trees to photography to cooking to fishing, from seed indexing to hugs, you name it and we would love to contribute. We can volunteer, build, laugh, learn, share, play, farm...only possibility awaits!

    We are currently in the North of Malaysia volunteering on an organic farm and will be making our way down to Indonesia in the coming weeks...By The 1st of Feb we will be back in Kuala Lumpur to apply for the Social-Cultural Visa for 2 months. WE HOPE TO ENTER INDONESIA IN EARLY FEB...

    A little about us:
    Me...Gina: I am 25, originally from the US (California/Florida), but follow my feet wherever they take me. Worked the last 6 years in veterinary medicine (small breed pets [mostly cats and dogs]..., I have also done my fair share of farm work on various organic farms, permaculutre farms, family garden projects, etc...I am a fast learner and put my heart into absolutely everything I do (if i dont know it I find it out!) I am also a co-founder and partner of KORAKOR a project about connecting with oneself, others and all that makes the world.

    Keveen (my partner), is 29, originally from France (South of France close to Nice), though he has been running with the wind for longer than it has blown. He is an educator with a deep-seeded passion for agriculture! He is also the founder/creator of KORAKOR an NGO based out of California. He is kind, gentle and a wonderfully dedicated hard worker!

    Is there a possibility in volunteering, co-creating and or collaborating?

    Hoping we can come and participate with you!

    Sincerely looking forward to hearing from you. Wishing you a happy and beautiful night and day.

    Gina & Keveen

  14. Hi Ratna,

    Me and my friend Jess have been reading your blog and are very interested in volunteering when we come to Sumatra in September, quite a long way in advance I know but we thought it was worth getting in contact. We're both students from Cambridge University in the UK, I study engineering and Jess studies Chemistry so we'd hope to have bits of knowledge to help your efforts. Please contact me on gracecopplestone@gmail.com if you think we might be able to come along.

    Best wishes

    Grace
