Sahabat Cipta Foundation

Statement from Our Executive Director

Welcome to Sahabat Cipta

The year 2014 had been a challenging and yet encouraging year for me and my team at Sahabat Cipta. This is the year when we become fully independent from our mother organization, Swisscontact. We have learned new lessons, and at the same time successfully achieved most of our targets. 

In 2014, we have missed some of the targets we set as some things were not happened as planned. The lessons learned are valuable experience for our foundation to continue growing and become a more professional, innovative, trustworthy, and respected organization. 

On positive reflection of 2014, we have reached not less than 7,000 smallholder farmers and entrepreneurs through our programs in Aceh, Riau, Java, Kalimantan, Sulawesi, and East Nusa Tenggara. Through our economic development program, we have contributed to at least 25% increase of income of the smallholders. More than half the population of Jakarta were protected from becoming passive smokers by the smoke free area policy, developed and introduced by the government through our Smoke Free Jakarta project. This year, we also managed to secure a program from Chevron to be implemented in 2015.

While we successfully completed 3 projects to the satisfaction of our donor partners in 2014, in 2015 we look forward to working on at least two big projects in consortium with international partners.

Looking at the potential opportunities in 2015, we at Sahabat Cipta are highly spirited in dedicating our capacity and resources to become the leading partner in implementing programs that give real and positive impact to the betterment of livelihoods and welfare of Indonesian smallholder farmers and entrepreneurs

Sincerely yours,


Dollaris R. (Waty) Suhadi
