    Responding to President Joko Widodo's direction in anticipating the possibility of a food crisis during the COVID-19 pandemic, several governors and mayors issued an appeal to their communities to prepare themselves in case of a food crisis by planting crops in home yards and other vacant lands around the house. Bina Swadaya Foundation in partnership with the Catholic Network Against COVID-19 (JKMC), Trubus Magazine and Trubus Shop responded to the call. We provided agricultural inputs (food crop and horticulture seeds, fertilizers, planting media, and farming equipment), accompanied by online training on farming practices and regular mentoring by social media facilities. The program was carried out in Depok City and Parung, Bogor Regency of West Java; Semarang and Solo of Central Java; Malang of East Java; Lampung; Ruteng, Ende and Larantuka of East Nusa Tenggara from June 2020 to January 2021. The beneficiaries of this program were 881 families including 164 families with disabilities.

    Expected Impact

    • The target group families are able to farm on home yard & empty yard that produce nutritious food (horticulture product) for family consumption

    • The volunteers have vital role in empowering these family members, mainly women, also able to assist and develop business units with the target groups.
