Support for schools & students provides a brighter future for their community. Yet the gap between schools in remote islands and those in big cities is growing wider every year. COVID – 19 threw this disparity into stark relief. Our support for these remote schools began with pencils and exercise books but rapidly grew to more technically oriented supplies such as solar power, computer labs and STEM-oriented teaching aids.
We face a new challenge as due to the Coronavirus crisis, almost overnight, schools in Indonesia had to transfer their regular classes into a virtual environment. Students and teachers lack access to the necessary technology, smartphones, laptops, PCs and internet access.
