One week after huge earthquake and tsunami in December 26, 2004 until now, FTPI has doing many activities that the benefit felt by children the tsunami victims. This activities will be continued even though might be in different kind of actions depending on the basic need to facilitate children with all they rights, especially in learning/education process.
Traumatic recovery by telling story done at refugee’s camp.
Telling story training for teachers and children facilitators.
Supporting transportation cost for children facilitator volunteers.
Facilitating children library in Banda Aceh City – Province of Banda Aceh.
Facilitating Mini Library for Children at Distric of Simeulue.
Facilitating learning books, bag packs and sport wears for 1000 children in Banda Aceh and Distric of Simeulue.
In the first stage, most children under the traumatic – lot of their parents, teachers, friends die, they lost heir living hoods, many of their schools was damage, so the first activity most important was to recovered them from their trauma, many volunteers facilitated by FTPI for their transportation cost, they moved from one camp to another camp to telling story and giving training for rest of teachers and children facilitators.
Step by step the trauma was gone, then our target was how to brought them back to school and FTPI facilitated them for sport wears, bag packs and library for children, so they could start to study, even though almost of them still under the emergency condition. This gift made them happy and busy with learning activities and study then they forget the tsunami.
Need to know that facilitating library for children; FTPI was the first NGO who did it, before other NGO did the same program, both locally and overseas NGO.

GREETING FOR ALL DONORS
Thank you very much to all donors who support FTPI’s actions both financial and morally, special thank for Globalgiving who help us to facilitate to realize our ideas. We sure that all you gift are very useful for people in Aceh.
One of District in Province of Aceh which affected by tsunami is District of Simeulue. District of Simeulue is an island which can reach by boat transportation for 12 hours or by small plane (with capacity: 12 passengers) from Medan. On this island number of 170 schools from 176 schools was damage, also the ground infrastructures. There for people activities, include teachers and students use the fishermen boat.
Base on the fact, we think the strategic action and do not facilitate yet by other NGO (both locally and overseas) are to support mini boat for school which will be used by teachers and student to attend the meetings, study, and tournament, etc. Also the boat will be used by people (by pay the fee). The benefit they get will spend for scholarship and operational school need. To rent the boat also will be a place to train the student entrepreneurship.
