Mirainesia is a social startup created by Indonesian Madi and Japanese Yutaka. The encounter between the two-man began when Yutaka joined a volunteer as an English Teacher in Madi's local Belopa, South Sulawesi. Growing up in an economically rich country in Japan, Yutaka was fascinated by the natural beauty of the Indonesian countryside and the kindness of the people. On the other hand, He noticed various local problems such as education, environment, working opportunities, and economy.
Madi is a teacher who teaches English to locals in a small village, he is an also creator who makes anything from a natural resource such like a banana leaf, cray, trash, etc, and also has the leadership to solve some social issues. The two-man met in a volunteer program and decided to made Mirainesia together.
The name Mirainesia is the name given to Mirai, which represents the future of the Japanese word, multiplied by Indonesia. We want to solve local problems in Indonesia and create the future of Indonesia through the services and activities we provide.
One of the four Greater Sunda Islands, and the world's eleventh-largest island. Our local Luwu in the countryside of south Sulawesi, there are beautiful nature and innocent children in here, however, this beautiful nature is getting collapse now. Actually, it's destroyed by people to throw the garbage. It is so sad that people destroy their own environment.
We are creating an eco-friendly product from natural resources like coconuts, leaf, wood, banana and bamboo, and replace plastic product from the market. We are trying to make sustainable business and educate the people to keep this beautiful nature for our future.
In local of Indonesia, most of the people work as a farmer, and the big problem is they don't have any job opportunity and facing the financial issue. Even though the incomes of local people don't increase, infrastructure costs such as water, electricity and other living expenses, food, school fee are increasing year by year. As a result, people in the Belopa leave their local area and move to cities such as Makassar and Jakarta for work.
We want to give local people work opportunities through our business and want them to show local hopes. For that purpose, we want to challenge local sustainable businesses, give dreams and hope to many people, and create new challengers.
To our surprise, there are a lot of children not going to school in this area. Some of them have children who want to go to school but their parents don't aware of the importance of school and they are not allowed to go to school. There are children who cannot go to school because they are busy helping with farming at home.
We believe in the importance of education and want to maximize the potential of our children through education and expand the possibilities to the unknown future.
At MIRAINESIA, we raise funds through crowdfunding and set up a small school where we teach English and Environment to children in Belopa, Sulawesi. Volunteer teachers from around the world visit our school and communicate with local students. Our students will be able to speak simple English in about two months, and will be able to learn much information from around the world via the Internet, and will be able to interact with people from all over the world from the small local village.
