“Catatan Ibu-Ibu Pembersih Pantai : Kami Juga Ingin Melakukan Sesuatu Untuk Masyarakat”




…Pukul setengah 6 pagi, Wayan Yasri sudah berangkat dari kediamannya di sebuah Desa di Kuta. Setelah menyiapkan sarapan untuk anak-anaknya dan merapikan rumah, ia mengayuh sepedanya kira-kira sejauh 1 km untuk dapat tiba tepat waktu di Pantai Kuta. Lengkap dengan seragam lengan panjang, sepatu, dan topi, Wayan Yasri mengenakan sarung tangannya dan membawa garu. Ia memarkirkan sepedanya di Garasi Traktor, lalu berkumpul bersama 10 perempuan dan 4 laki-laki lainnya. Setelah mengikuti briefing pagi, dengan semangat pagi, mereka siap membersihkan pantai dan membuatnya tetap cantik…



Wayan Yasri merupakan salah satu crew Bali Beach Clean Up (BBCU) yang sudah mendedikasikan dirinya sebagai crew pembersih pantai selama lebih dari 2 tahun ini. Bali Beach Clean Up merupakan Program bersih-bersih pantai yang sudah dilaksanakan sejak 2009 lalu dan merupakan inisiatif dari Coca-Cola Amatil Indonesia dan Quiksilver Indonesia. Wayan Yasri bersama dengan 50 Ibu-Ibu lainnya dan 24 Bapak-Bapak dari warga setempat dari mulai Pantai Seminyak, Legian, Kuta, Kedonganan dan Jimbaran, telah membantu menjaga pantai tetap bersih. Crew BBCU ini merupakan bagian dari staf Desa Adat yang khusus didedikasikan untuk menjaga kebersihan pantai setiap harinya. Dari 74 total crew, dilihat dari jumlah angkanya, kaum Ibu memang memiliki jumlah lebih besar daripada crew laki-laki. Mereka sangat memiliki semangat dan kerja keras yang tinggi.

***

Ketika dahulu Kartini menyuarakan emansipasi untuk kaum perempuan, sejak saat itu pula terhitung sudah ribuan perempuan Indonesia dan ribuan cara yang mendukung emansipasi ini. Masing-masing meyakini dan mewujudkan adanya kata emansipasi tersebut dengan berjuang di bidang yang mereka kuasai, dari mulai berjalan mencapai cita-cita dalam bidang pendidikan, berkecimpung dalam dunia politik, hingga sama-sama bekerja untuk menghidupi keluarga dikarenakan latar belakang ekonomi.

Perempuan saat ini dituntut untuk tidak hanya menjalankan perannya sebagai Ibu, di samping menjaga dan mendidik anak-anak di rumah, bekerja kadang juga menjadi tuntutan perempuan untuk membuat asap dapur mereka tetap mengepul. Tidak dapat dihindari, kebudayaan global sudah mendorong perempuan untuk ikut andil dalam menghidupi keluarga. Jika dahulu seorang Ibu bertugas hanya untuk memberikan pendidikan pada anaknya di rumah, kali ini seringkali seorang Ibu diharuskan turut mencari nafkah demi memastikan anak-anaknya tetap mengeyam pendidikan formal.

Hal inilah yang kemudian menjadi latar belakang dan menjadi motivasi terbesar, mengapa Ibu-Ibu ini bekerja di pantai setiap harinya. Tuntutan ekonomi menjadi faktor pendorong yang sangat signifikan bagi mereka untuk menjadi seorang petugas kebersihan pantai.
“Saya harus dapat mencari uang untuk anak-anak, supaya bisa menambah-nambah untuk hidup sehari-hari”, ujar Wayan Yasri.

Sebagian besar dari crew BBCU, termasuk Ibu-Ibu ini juga masih menemui kendala dalam hal baca tulis dan berhitung. Rata-rata dari mereka yang hanya sanggup mengenyam pendidikan sampai tingkat SD-itupun ada sebagian besar yang tidak selesai, beberapa merupakan lulusan SMA, dan sebagian yang lain bahkan tidak pernah mencicipi pendidikan sekolah sama sekali.

Berangkat dari latar belakang tersebut, untuk membantu crew meningkatkan taraf pendidikannya, mereka juga diberikan edukasi tentang hal-hal sederhana yang dapat mereka praktekan dalam kehidupan sehari-hari, seperti, hidup berkelanjutan, Penanganan Pertama Pada kesehatan, pengolahan kompos sederhana, kedisipilinan di tempat kerja, dan yang terpenting adalah mengenai literatur.

Dalam memberikan edukasi untuk crew BBCU, Coca-Cola Amatil Indonesia juga bekerjasama dengan R.O.L.E Foundation-sebuah Lembaga Pemberdayaan Masyarakat yang bergerak dalam bidang pendidikan dan pemberdayaan perempuan. Sudah dalam kurun waktu 6 bulan terakhir ini, R.O.L.E mengadakan sesi training khusus setiap minggu-nya untuk Ibu-Ibu Crew Beach Clean Up di Pantai.

“Sekitar 80% dari crew Beach Clean Up ini rata-rata tidak memiliki kemampuan untuk membaca dan menulis, hal inilah yang menjadi salah satu kendala terbesar sekaligus menjadi tantangan kami sebagai tim pengajar untuk menyampaikan materi, untuk itulah kami lebih banyak menyampaikan materi yang dapat mereka serap secara langsung,” ungkap Made, salah satu tim pengajar dari ROLE Foundation.

Ibu-Ibu ini memiliki semangat yang tinggi untuk turut berkontribusi terhadap masyarakat, membersihkan pantai merupakan salah satu wujud pengabdian mereka untuk Desa Adat. Latar belakang pendidikan yang hanya seadanya, menjadi kendala besar untuk mendapatkan pekerjaan di sektor formal, dengan mengambil alih pekerjaan ini, mereka dapat memenuhi tuntutan ekonomi keluarga sekaligus mengabdi untuk masyarakat.

“Membersihkan pantai adalah tugas mulia, dengan membantu menjaga kondisi pantai tetap bersih, turis menjadi nyaman, kami harap, apa yang kami lakukan dapat membantu dalam meningkatkan pariwisata di Pantai-pantai di Bali”, aku Ibu Siti – salah satu crew Pantai Kuta

Ibu-Ibu ini faham betul, bahwa mereka ingin sekali membantu membuat perubahan dan perkembangan untuk Desa-nya. Dengan menjalankan profesi ini, mereka juga dapat membantu perekonimian keluarga, menyekolahkan anak-anaknya sekaligus mengabdi bagi Desanya.
“Setidaknya, saya bisa menyekolahkan anak saya, sekarang dia baru kelas 5 dan bisa dapat terus bersekolah”, ujar Wayan Yasri.

Terimakasih, Ibu-Ibu…
Semoga apa yang dilakukan dapat menginspirasi masyarakat luas. Kontribusi sekecil apapun, jika dilakukan dengan tulus dan didasari semangat yang tinggi, dapat membuat perubahan besar yang berarti. (thesa)

...how I love art so much..

a.r.t

I though every single person in this world always related to this thing
like it or not, you would always related with art in different way

I was born from the family who loves art, even my grandfather was a bit fanatic that human are not supposed to put human's painting or those sort, and of course he hates statue-- but my grandmother always support me in art thingy.

I've an uncle who loves painting, and also my Mom was good in playing guitars and have a beautiful voices, my brother is good in playing guitar and drum as well, my father was good in technical and mechanical drawing and design and many others.

Me?
I've been drawing since my first grade in Senior High School. Magically, my hand produces some good drawing or sketch. I was fall in love with dominant colour in the second grade and begin to love interior design in my last grade. I love 3D painting and how we mix physics with design, construction.

I choosed Architecture - ITB while enrolling University in 2005. But infortunately, I did not make it. My Grandmother did not allowed me to enroll Art Faculty, and here I'am, trapped as a communication degree, but its ok... I have never been changing my point of view about A-R-T.

I've been using many kind of media or materials to express my mind. Starting from Crayon, watercolour pencil, charcoal, B&W pencil, and then acrylic on canvas, watercolour, and event marker and ecco-pigment.its all good. I've been and keep exploring which one is the best for me...

I like sculpture, and still curious on producing the statue from the stone, wood, even gips and poetry, even soap as well and wire. I love installation art, where people stringing the wire and metal materials.

I like paper quilling and design which applied to the fabric

I like photography and nude photos ;p

I like anything!
but the most...I really like fine art-painting. Painting is the artsy way to show desperation, happiness, even bewilderment...:) am I right?!

I want to be morre productive in painting or at least sketching. mix it with corel draw or photoshop, print...etc etc...




the vitruvian man by leonardo da vinci




I'am a big fan of Leonardo Da Vinci, I love how he mix the logic of human body with his sense of art through "The Vitruvian Man". I do really like Lala Bohang as well...with all her illustration. Her thoughs is quite simple with thousand of meaning (lebay!). I also like Diani's Illustration, she's very impressive and talented.
But I've been learning much from her...Thank's Lala...

Well, I was realized that if you have any talent, you should explore more and more...
I thought this's my part of talent, and I really blessed with my drawing or skecthing talent. Even its not as good as any other illustrator or painter, but I've been trying much moreee, currently...:)

...meeting my Dad #inmymind

I imagine meeting my Dad,
it's been about 4-5 years I've never meet him yet

Probably,
if someday we meet, we're gonna be so rigid

I'am wondering the reaction that would be shown by me
do I need to angry ? (but tired of being always angry to him)
do I need to smile ? *like a crazy person*
do I need to be softly talking to him ? *a! I would never do that, hahaha*

Probably...
I just want to ask


"Hi, Pap's, how are you ?"

a standard question, actually the same question while I meet my friends and any other person.

step-mom?

"Hi, Tante?" or even
"Hi, Mba?"

xixixixixixixi


cheers,
that's my life

...notes from #mybeautyproducts


Dear woman and all,

I've been twitting about #mybeautyproducts on twitter and thanks god, if its inspire you to do something with your shampoo, hair or any other things...
Start from the bordom killing among my rest hours on the weekend, I've posted #mybeautyproducts, its all my products I've been using lately for hair, skin, and body...

I'm not kind of woman who really care to the beauty products before, if you see myself directly, you'll see the messy woman (or girl) without any kind of make up or anything.
But, without make up doesn't mean, I leave my hair bad or those sort, I've been concerning of using the eco-friendly products.
I have a sensitive skin, and living at the island where the sun rises about 30 degrees everyday...I often get to the beach almost everyday, because we have so many projects at the beach.Its all boost me to use all sun-protecting products.

Allright, here are the products :)






Care to your hands, especially for you who work a lot under the aircond, try HandCream from bodyshop..it has a good smell :)



stay curl and wavy, use L'Oreal Curling Mousse, applied it while your hair's wet! and ta daaaa...you'll got curl!



Giordani Bronzer, am sure you already know this by Oriflame




working outdoor, I always use this..given from Mba Titien, hehehe...Himalaya Footcare




for face...Bodyshop Pressed Powder and its lipcare, or just Lip Ice! the cheap one but really works, you could applied aigner lipbalm or vaseline as well





Banana Boat Sunscreen SPF 50, its sweat resistant and could bring glowing effect, like it! For indoor use, try body butter..





Working under the sun, try Nivea Face Cream SPF 50, be careful.. sometimes it could make your skin darker while applied sunblock/suncream, trust me!





#mybeautyproducts, I also applied Rainforest Moisture Shampoo by Bodyshop for hair and don't forget to always applied the vitamin while your hair still wet




Comments and reply
feel free to accept it, ladies...
and indeed, I prefer use the cheap but good quality products.
Brand is number 2, the most important is...its all perfect to applied to your body/skin

Thank you,
