This business is packaged in a collaboration program Pesona Indonesia from Kemenpar and Rona Nusantara from Rumah Zakat. Rona Nusantara is a sharing and traveling program specifically to the Empowered Village Rumah Zakat area which displays natural beauty and local characteristics of a village.
The participants who really like traveling, not only have fun in enjoying the natural beauty that exists. They are invited to sharing with local residents about their tourist attractions visit.
Several ways of sharing can be done such as giving motivation classes at local school, Outbound Nusantara with school students, distribution of school equipment, mutual cooperation, environmental cleanliness, service health, and village cinema.
This “Sharing and Traveling” activity can be carried out in several Empowered Villages that has tourism potential such as in Jatimulyo Village, Kulonprogo, Yogyakarta to be able to enjoy the Mudal River, and in Mekarsari Village Cimaung Bandung, tourists can enjoy Cipinag waterfall tours while enjoying coffee from the residents’ coffee garden.
