Village de Bebekan
"Ce jour là, la terre tremblera d'un profond tremblement, et les hommes diront: qu'a-t-elle en ce moment?" "Ce jour là, la terre racontera sa propre histoire, telle que son Seigneur la lui a donnée à voir..." Telle est l'histoire de la terre de Bebekan, un village javanais en forme d'île au milieu d'un océan de rizières dont l'esprit "gotong-royong" (entre-aide communautaire) a fait voile jusqu'en France, en Espagne, au Brésil, au Japon, au Canada, à Singapour...

In May 2006, the natural disaster caused by the Tsunami that hit the island of Java was followed by intense volcanic activity, which destroyed the village of Bebekan at the foot of the Merapi volcano. After this natural disaster, Elisabeth INANDIAK PRASETYO, an international journalist focusing on Indonesia, initiated a humanitarian aid project based on a micro-economic approach that aimed at getting villagers involved in the rebuilding process. In this video, she explains how the Bebekan Village Project played out and discusses the importance of implementing humanitarian aid that is adapted to the local populations’ way of life. “On that day, the Earth will shake and tremble, and humans will ask, ‘what is the matter with her?’ On that day, the Earth will tell her own story inspired by her Lord..." Such is the story of the earth at Bebekan, a Javanese village shaped like an island floating on a green ocean of rice patties. Its spirit of "gotong-royong" (community collaboration) has travelled all the way to France, Spain, Brazil, Japan, Singapore, Canada, and other countries.
