    Joint Founder/President with Ekadana E Gusti Putu – Lombok – Indonesia,
    Stage one finished, stage two being planned. Check out a short Video

    2. Drinking Water For the Poor:
    Joint Founder/President with Ekadana E Gusti Putu – Lombok – Indonesia,
    Three very poor communities of 1,100, 1,700 and 1,900 families are often struggling to buy clean drinking water. 9 children died of water contaminated diseases last year. Only 4 kilometres away we have a historical 300-year-old spring & water park. We have now drilled the bore and are setting up filters & a bottling station. The small money from water sales funds two workers, who very shortly will be filling & delivering hundreds of 20 litre bottles a day. Profits will support maintenance & Nano Bank.

    3. Nano Bank:
    Joint Founder/President with Ekadana E Gusti Putu
    The bank that doesn’t take your house off you because you need emergency money for rice. People are loosing there homes after getting caught in a viscous cycle of interest from illegal mafia type money lenders who’s original loans were $7/$14 or $30. This small non-profit bank gives emergency only loans of very small amounts for food – thus Nano. Oh yes there is an interesting story how 1,200 families took with sticks to local mafia who were also attracting village kids to sell drugs to western people in hotels.

    3. Outbound Rinjani Outdoor Education Centre:
    Joint Founder with Ekadana E Gusti Putu & Mark Nicholson, Mt Rinjani, Lombok. High-populated poor countries are all slowly destroying themselves, we see a great need to get poor kids to have fun & love their environment. In a country of 230 million people this will be a first to Indonesia and with help will create a template model that makes it easy for others set up more. We are presently taking over a government hotel to convert into a 120 person Outdoor education centre. The location is in the world famous Mt Rinjani Mountain Park, we have great government, army and Television company support.

    4. Outbound Lombok Beach Outdoor Education Centre
    Due to rain Outbound Rinjan has a 6 to 8 month peak season, as staff will require in depth training rather than loose them we plan to utilise them on a second all year around beach OEC camp. Myself & Ekadana have purchased an extremely valuable 30 acres of deep white sand beach front land, which has blue water coral reef, sheltered harbour, 2.8 kilometres of coastline, lots of endangered animals & backs onto it’s own valley and a 300-acre forestland that government will tie into the operation. The location is West Lombok 1 hour from Mataram City and 30km from the new International Airport. We seek only NZ $70 to $90,000 dollars to set up buildings & infrastructure. It will host 120 kids on 3-day education camps, with kayaking, trekking, flying foxes, rope course, an animal, reptile and bird rehabilitation centre, and swallow nesting station. It will be a sustainable self-funding non-profit that has a huge market as a ‘Team building event location for many companies such as banks from Mataram City. Army & Government very keen to help.

    Owner, Joint Founder, Komodo National Park, Flores, Indonesia
    This is my dream project and will involve partnering with a resourceful University and building on a Island we own and will gift.
    We have recently been blessed with the addition of a nearby US Aid funded Fish Laboratory & laboratory and 30 acres beautiful of coastal land and reef.

    Imagine a University that hosted a Tropical Island Research Resort for Students. A facility with ‘thatched roof - over the water bungalows, swimming pools and research facilities and wireless that connected ‘frontline students’ to their supporting ‘back line’ colleagues and professors. Imagine this being in a location that was set in one of the world's most diverse Marine & Wildlife Parks ‘the Komodo National Park and to top it all off cost as little as $35 US per day.
    “An ecologically unique location similar to the Maldives but with much more species & importantly everything is at 10% the cost.”

    And this is exactly the idea. We believe that in making research facility so appealing, it will attracts the best students with the ‘best planet improving projects to come’. Imagine 100 students per month, each bringing their important thesis & projects such as Environmental, Green Energy, Marine and Sustainable Community ideas to a FRONTLINE location where they can test, research and further polish their ‘world improving innovations & theories’.

    What does Komodo Research Resort offer for University:
    THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION with the answer being it will make them a lot of money, make them famous but more importantly: endlessly deliver to the world much needed poverty & environmental innovations. The idea is the facility to be open to all.

    Dolphin Poisoning:
    This is a project which dolphin legislation has overlooked and will drive changes to marine mammal legislation.
