My name is Sukatni, was called Katni, 35 years old than as a housewife, i did as women Guide since 1995, I was the first woman became Trekking Guide to Mount Rinjani.
My father is an Indigenous Stakeholders Wetu telu Senaru Bayan, I was born from the environment that still uphold and preserve the local culture and apply the values of local wisdom in our daily lives.
For me it became the Women Guide Mount Rinjani is not just looking for a profit but rather to taste my love of Mount Rinjani is the life support communities in Senaru Village and Lombok Island Typical.
During this profession became Trekking Guide and Trekking organizer only done by men only and women only as a housewife waiting for the husband’s income on average worked as a porter and Trekking Guide with limited income.
My concern on Mount Rinjani increasingly frequent damage and environmental pollution caused by waste generated from Rinjani trekking activities, in my opinion requires action therefore I invite each climber to follow the program “Keep Rinjani Green and Clean” by first making commitment to fill out a check list of the garbage that we prepared before the climb.
I am very concerned about the women in the village who tends ruled out and they are very limited role made me compelled to petrified and invite them to be part of the effort that I developed in the village of Senaru.
I want the women in Senaru also inspired and follow in my footsteps so that they can help the family economy and make the role of women in Senaru more and more independent.
