Sarinbuana is a small farming village perched 2,200 feet above sea level on the slopes of Mount Batukaru in Bali. Community members have been the traditional custodians of a 1,975-acre section of intact rainforest above their village.
The people of Sarinbuana are willing to formally endorse their role as guardians of the forest and protect it from all extractive activities. In exchange, Seacology will provide funds to build a library/music/dance building and to buy computers and musical instruments for the village primary school. Seacology will also fund signs and a natural stone pathway to an important temple in the forest.
