Last but not least, OSIRIS from Indonesia is presenting their project on Dragonfruit Ice Cream. What makes it interesting is that, they empower the community of disabled people to make the ice cream. So, it’s about empowering disabled and poor community. They also claimed that the Dragonfruit ice cream is a fresh and healthy ice cream as they do not put any added artificial color and the fruit itself, Dragonfruit, is rich with antioxidant.

After the Grand Final round ended, we are proceeding to the next destination, which is Warung Ingkung Kuali in Bantul, Yogyakarta, for having lunch and also meet the owner of one of the Social Enterprise in Yogya, Hoshizora Foundation.
