Explain your idea in details:

Our main activity consists of 3, making homes, providing food and manage their work to become effective and efficient. First, we will build a house from discarded plastic. We will transform this waste into quality construction elements, we made beams, blocks, jamb and sill and then combine it like building a giant lego house. They must register first and their work is willing to be managed by us to be able to live in this house. Then, our team is intended to cooperate with hotels, restaurants and locals to collect leftover food which are still definitely edible. We will later distribute these food to people who live in that house. Beside providing free food and house, we will also manage their work. We plan to divide them in two groups, agroup to gather the recycleable materials, and group to recycle the recycleable materials to useful recycled items. For example tires made to become bed, pipes modified to become shoe shelves and shirts sewed to become bags. Then we will sell it to get capital which will be used to purchase tools to create batik. We choose batik since batik is Indonesia's culture icon we have pride on. Then we will sell it to domestic and foreign. 50 percent of profit will be used for operating costs and 50 percent will given for them as capital to enact their own bussinesses. We also planned to build a library and park for their children, thus their parents may leave to work with no worry as their children are entrusted in the library and the park we provided. If possible, we want to educate them and their children with basic and entrepreneursip skill in hopes that they will make use of the skill in the future and start their own great business

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

This is aimed to suppress unemployment, altogether to contribute in Indonesia's economic improvement. If we succeed to actualize this idea, we could fight starvation, reduce garbage, and minimize amount of food wasted. We also hoped their children to be properly nurtured and receive decent education to achieve their future goals

Plans for implementation and sustainability

We would like to search for a spot to build the house and gather food. We will also try to cooperate with government. If the government does not able to provide land, we will make a campaign and submit it in crowfunding website. And also find a investor to sponsoring this project. Then we will buy a land. We will working with architects to transform this waste into quality construction elements and build the house. Then our team visit restaurants, hotels and fruit markets to investigate and gather data of the edible leftovers. The next step is to estimate number of scarvengers according to the number of house and food we could provide. These scarvengers will first be registered with specified terms, one of it is whether their work is willing to be managed by us. They will later receive our gathered food and return to their job; gathering the recycleable garbages and creating recycled products of it. Finally, they make batik from profit sales. we also work with students in University of Indonesia to educacte them and their children. This should continue until they are able to build business on their own
