In accordance with the agreement in the organization, bou tebo annually builds 3 (three) permanent houses and for three years has succeeded in building 9 (nine) permanent houses, each member collects funds of Rp. 4,000,000 (four million rupiahs) each. In addition to funds, each member also collects cement, stone, sand, zinc, wood, iron measuring 10 mm, 8 mm and 6 mm according to mutual agreement. Theoretically, social change is not only determined by human resources, communication and information technology, but rather to efforts to change ways of thinking, acting, and living pressures to increase productivity in meeting the needs of life. Bou tebo provides clear evidence that social change can be realized by increasing the ability to think and work hard that is driven by the emotional bond of genetics to feel the same fate, share the same fate and struggle to help each other realize the dream of a better life than before, namely by having a decent house to live in.
