To donate the Rp. 40-million fund, RRC obliges all of the villages to submit a proposal of the fund implementation planning that explains in detail on what the fund will be spent for. Therefore, each funded village has different purpose and use as it is based on the need of the people living in each village. In the meantime, there are five other villages that haven't finished the proposal of the fund implementation planning; Cempaka Baru, Baung, Jahitan, Tanjung Rengas, and Sungai Perlu.

The CEO of RRC, L.

The Ecosystem Restoration program by RRC reflects that RRC schematically protects, preserves and fosters the forest area as the Earth's lung, the habitat for the wide variety of biodiversity and the source of the livelihood for the community living surrounding the work area of PT. Rimba Raya Conservation.

RRC is the first-ever company in Indonesia that implements the REDD+ program within the work area in Seruyan, Central Borneo, and possesses three prioritized work programs related to the climate change countermeasures, the conservation of forest's biodiversity and the Village Community Development.
