Strategic Framework
 

 

Based on the rigorous analysis of the problems described above, KPS has formulated the following strategic framework for the solution.
 

 

 


VISION:
Natural ecosystems free of plastic waste.


VALUES:
1. We will promote zero plastic-waste lifestyle at domestic and public levels. Due to this, we will support any effort for removing or at least reducing, reusing, recycling, and upcycling plastic waste and other types of waste in a more sustainable way.

2. We will substantially involve female groups in our policy-making and management processes. Persistent prejudices and stereotypes, primarily in rural areas, lead these groups to gender inequality, disempowerment, marginalization, and even gender-based violence.

3. We will support LGBTQIA+ communities especially their youth, as they increasingly suffer from many forms of violence and discrimination from all people and governments who treat them worse than waste.


MISSION:
We are a girls' environmental NGO working in Indonesia. We aim to promote good plastic governance in order to reduce poverty while protecting the nature. We do this by enhancing the capacity of girls’ groups within poor communities living in rural, urban, and coastal areas to reduce, reuse, recycle, and upcycle plastic waste in a more sustainable way.
 

 

OVERALL GOAL (2017 – 2027):
To end poverty while protecting the natural ecosystems at rural, urban, and coastal areas by facilitating the poor to manage organic farms on pots upcycled from waste plastic bags and bottles, and by upcycling plastic waste and other types of waste into best-selling crafts and building materials.


PRIMARY TARGET GROUPS:
KPS works for and together with the girls’ groups within poor communities who are mostly vulnerable to the adverse impacts of plastic waste, primarily:

• The poor communities who live in rural areas, especially the landless and small farmers. Through their girls’ groups, they will be facilitated to protect the terrestrial ecosystems, especially river basins, from plastic waste pollution while freeing themselves from the snares of poverty by smartly and sustainably managing the plastic waste to generate their income.

• The poor communities who live in urban slums especially the homeless. Through their girls’ groups, they will be facilitated to protect the urban areas from plastic waste pollution while freeing themselves from the snares of poverty by smartly and sustainably managing the plastic waste to generate their income.

• The poor communities who live in coastal areas especially the artisanal fishers who struggle to survive by fishing applying simple and traditional tools. Through their girls’ groups, they will be facilitated to protect marine ecosystems, especially mangroves and coral reefs, from plastic waste pollution while freeing themselves from the snares of poverty by smartly and sustainably managing the plastic waste to generate their income.


STRATEGIC PROGRAMS:
In order to achieve its overall goal, KPS and all its stakeholders have formulated two strategic programs, as follows:
 

 

Organic mushroom farming on waste plastic bags and buckets managed by our beneficiaries.



1. Organic Farming on Waste Plastic Bottles & Bags
In this program, through the girls’ groups, we facilitate the poor communities living in rural, urban, and coastal areas to organically farm mushrooms and bean sprout on pots upcycled from waste plastic bags and bottles. They can sell the harvest to generate their income and partly for self consumption to enhance their nutrition.

When the plastic pots are brittle and can no longer be used for farming, we facilitate the communities to recycle them into better and cheaper bricks and pavers for sale to boost their income or for self use to enhance their huts.

 

Organic bean-sprout farming on waste plastic bottles managed by our beneficiaries.

 


2. Developing Waste Upcycle Centers
In this program, through the girls’ groups, we facilitate the poor communities living in rural, urban, and coastal areas to raise their income in a sustainable way by establishing and managing waste upcycle centers and commercially upcycle waste plastic bottles into sofas, stools, multipurpose racks, handbags, and jewelry (rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings), and upcycle waste plastic bags into bags, baskets, rugs, pillows, and slippers.
