ChildFund provides quality learning opportunities in basic education with a focus on learning outcomes. In order to create social, participatory and learning opportunities for all children, ChildFund Indonesia puts into practice programs that promote alternative basic education, child-friendly schools and participatory school governance.
In Indonesia, we support community-based special classes for boys and girls who face challenges in their studies, and we provide them with dedicated tutors and books so they can finish their primary education.
In areas where we are currently supporting child-friendly schools, we focus on building relationships between teachers and students and providing a safe place where learning can flourish. In Indonesia, the inability to pay school fees can cause students to drop out. In these instances, we help students and their families remain current with their tuition and purchase program supplies.
We also provide students with an opportunity to exercise their voice, thereby having the ability to influence parents, teachers, the community and local governments.
