I am Tojo and I am from Madagascar, I started making yogurt in the VEDC’s kitchen, I had a dual purpose for that, the first was to show them a bit of my skill because I had already used to do it in my country. Then, I suggested it to the “darma Wanita (Association of VEDC’s employees’ wives) and they made me made 15 liters of milk at once, to turn into yogurt, TADA .. and that is, 75 pots of yogurt of 200 ml each, because I share 1 liter into 5 and that make 15 liters X 5 pots which gives 75 pots. Despite the fact that milk product is not a common product in the Indonesian daily life, with different flavour like strawberry, durian, chocolate and vanilla, the 75 pots were sold to the “darma wanita” and to the internal employees themselves,of course the “ darma wanita” who organized it got the profits.
My second goal was to show and demonstrate all the advantages that may contain yoghurt, For this, I had to consult Mr Google which has provided me a very convincing info like “Maintains healthy bones, helps digestion, helps reduce high blood pressure, Contains a variety of vitamins, Boost immunity, Reduce the risk of fungal infection, Improve gut health … and many more again.
After this first experience, I made it again, and then again, I gave it tast to my friends Darmasiswa at VEDC, they said it is good.
Nowaday, I try to give my homemade yogurt to others Malang Darmasiswa but in other University, well, they love it too. Who knows, “inshallah” as the Indonesians used to say, I do not know if it has a future but, my 2 purposes worth to try it.
