Indonesia Project 2: Ffrash

hardythomas000's Blog

Designer: OOOms- A two person design studio from the Netherlands specialising in creative workshops and lectures around the world.

Project: The project is called Ffrash and is initiated and organized by Gina Provo Kluit, a Dutch woman who is living in Jakarta.

OOOMS was invited to co-operate in a project to help former street children in Jakarta to develop building and making skills as well as give experience in entrepreneurship .
Jakarta has a massive waste management problem. Oooms developed a program to train ex- street kids to design and manufacture furniture and objects from waste materials.

Why I like it: Building skill sets for kids with next to no hope in life by creatively using waste materials to make an income, can only be a good thing.
