070 / Pagerharjo, Pati, Central Java – Community Eco-Library
Mrs. Fitri and her sister enjoy to have children around. Thus in 2013 they decided to establish a library called TBM Griyo Sianoe. Since Ms Fitri’s office and the library are very close, she sometimes does two jobs at the same time. So if someone wants to borrow a book, she would just run to the library and run back to her office.
Besides reading she organizes writing and sports competitions. As most of the people in her village still live under the poverty line, Ms. Fitri gives free lessons every afternoon to kindergarten pupils and every evening to elementary and Junior High School students.
She admits that there is no environmental program yet, but she would like to incorporate it in her classes.
