Story of Coconesia starts long before all of us met. Before then – Danica, Marta and Raden were helping local communities in different ways. Danica was involved in eco projects and was supporting local youth in creative projects. Marta was focused on kids and encouraged them to learn and explore how fun the world can be. Similarly Raden was helping local community to turn natural resources into new, quality products. And one day we’ve met. And since that day we’ve joined our forces and started working on a project that combines the passion for creation, the desire to change and helping others.
In August 2018, strong earthquakes hit the Lombok Island. Many people where killed, thousands of them injured, more than half a million people lost their households, workplaces, shelters. During this difficult times, people around the world sent help for the earthquakes’ victims. People started to reorganize their life, focusing on what’s the most important – trying to get back to the ‘normal’ life.
We do hope that through this project we will help North Lombok community find a new life path and start sharing what the have the best – love to nature and… coconuts!
