Masarang office compound in Tomohon
Very recently we finished building a simple restaurant space at our Masarang office compound in Tomohon. It is right next to our amphitheatre. Billy Motolu was made manager of the project and in a short time, with our own timber, palm fibres, bamboo and palm leaves he constructed a beautiful facility. He also made most of the furniture himself from trees that Masarang had planted and that needed to be thinned out. In addition, he started a coffee shop in the amphitheatre, and we reached an agreement with the city government of Tomohon to develop our site as a tourism site. After all, there is the amphitheatre with spectacular views over the valley of Kayawu and the sugar palm forests above it that protect the water supply of the rice fields. Also, there are many so-called “warugas”, very old stone graves on the site that are being protected. A few weeks ago, the mayor of Tomohon, Drs Jemmy Eman, came to open our new restaurant.
Educate visitors about nature and animals
Since that event many people became interested in visiting Masarang, which gives us the great opportunity to explain Masarang’s work and to educate people about what we all can do for our planet. Beneath are some pictures that show the latest developments that will contribute to both the name recognition and income for more of Masarang’s good work.
