She continued, "The fund donated to Palingkau village, Danau Sembuluh sub-district, will be leveraged to build a multipurpose hall, while the fund given to Telaga Pulang village, Danau Sembuluh sub-district will be absorbed to procure 10 units of PC/laptops, and fund for Muara Dua village, Seruyan Hilir sub-district, will be used to acquire 10 cows."

The handover of the Village Development Funds ceremony was facilitated by World Education, which was representated by Billy M. Hasbi, the Field Coordinator, as the partner of RRC. The handover of the Funds was conducted by the Program Manager, REDD+, PT.

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. Djonni Andhella, explained that the Community Development Program is a part of the RRC's work program implementation according to the license or the decree of the Minister of Forestry that permits PT. Rimba Raya Conservation to conduct the Ecosystem Restoration that is in line with the decree of the Minister of Forestry No.146/Menhut-II/5 March 2013 and the decree of Ministry of Forestry No. 735/Menhut-II/October 25, 2013 in the work area of 37.151 hectares located in Seruyan regency, province of Central Kalimantan. 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.

Rimba Raya Conservation is an obligation to be realized as an integral part of the REDD+ program implementation, and it's completely different with the Corporate Social Responsibility," CEO, PT.
