The main idea of this program based on the reality that education in developing country are really expensive. This program has been held since 2001. we were using an unused government building for free, unfortunately it was only running for 9 months because the building were going to use for another profitable event. Since that we moved to one of infamous universities in Bandung, we were allowed to use the small class twice a week but after the Dean was changed the same thing goes happen after we used their room for a year we have to pay the rent fee if we wanted to keep using it.
That situation made our volunteers have resigned and we have loosing many member. At September 2004 we paused all activities until 2008 we’re finally back after one of the Islamic Boarding School in Bandung gave us place for free. With new face of Volunteers and new additional program we have been fully supported by the School Principal, They gave us a big classroom with capacity for more than 80 people.
History repeats it self. After the School Principal has resigned, the school regulation has changed too. We can not use that room for free anymore. When they were asking for ‘room maintenance fee’ we were trying hard to raise fund from members donation, we were also selling merchandise during the course. The money we have collected was not enough to pay the rent fee neither to pay electricity bill.
in 2009 we were evicted from that school , and we deicided to use public park for our activities, everything gone right when the weather is clear but when it comes to rain, the activities shall stop.
We need your help.
All we need just a permanent place In order for this program to remain sustainable and provide for degree courses complete with student & Volunteer support. We believe we don’t ask too much nor dream too high to buy a small and comfortable place and extend the spirit of sharing knowledge and Wisdom to people who ever need it.
