Bukit Lawang Trust
For the past 17 years the Bukit Lawang Trust has been educating children from the surrounding communities in both conservation and English language studies. Employing 9 local women, supported by an army of volunteers the Trust routinely produces ground-breaking curriculums with breath-taking results. Not only has the Trust impacted thousands of children's lives , it also holds a special place in SEE Lily's heart, as it was a two year placement as BLT's school manager and Head of Education that initially brought her here to Sumatra! Let us know if you'd like to arrange a tour of the school and the incredible work that they do!
Masyarakat Peduli Lingkungan
Founded by a group of local men from Jawa Dalam, Masyarakat Peduli Lindungi aims to both deliver and promote a clean and safe environment for its 500+ inhabitants. Facilitated by local donations, a weekly rubbish collection scheme ensures sanitary waste disposal, in order to protect the integral water irrigation system. Community rubbish pick ups are scheduled each week; let us know if you'd like to join in and help!
