We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our sponsors/contributors for making this trip possible!
Bring these kids to school!
We are a group of youth volunteers (from Rotaract Club of North West
) embarking on a trip in March 2016 to Tanjung Balai Buru Karimun, a small island situated in Indonesia.
Last year, a few of our rotaractors went on a recce trip and visited a few potential schools for us to conduct our international service project. We have conducted a needs assessment and nominated a few schools as the beneficiary of our project.The 3 beneficiaries are:Sekolah Dasar Negeri 003 (Primary School)Sekolah Dasar, Tanjung Batu Kecil (Primary School)Sekolah Menangah Pertama Buru (Secondary School)
Many children on the island travel to school by foot, usually a few kilometers away from home. We want to highlight that going to school is important in a child's development. We also believe that with proper transportation to school, it will not only help to bring convenience to the students, but will also encourage them to attend school. It is our way of helping through their education journey, so that they are a step closer to becoming the future leaders they'll be.In our upcoming trip, we hope to be able to raise enough funds to: Provide bicycles for students who stays further away from the school;Provide school supplies such as books and stationery for the school and students;Provide school environmental improvement support such as repainting of school building and repair/replace of classrooms' tables and chairsOur target is to raise at least S$2,500 to purchase at least 20 bicycles, school supplies and support school improvement projects.
To break it down for you:$500 - you can support school repainting project (Sekolah Dasar Negeri 003) - sponsored!$300 - you can support repairment of tables and chairs (Sekolah Dasar Negeri 003) - sponsored!$60 - you can sponsor 1 bicycle
