Our Work In Indonesia

In a country where the educational system is underfunded, EDU Beyond’s presence in Indonesia is certainly more critical than in many places.

 

Here in Indonesia, we have had the honor of working with multiple, notable, non-profit organizations, including Inspirasia and Tangan Pengharapan. With the aid of these esteemed organizations, we have been able to carry out our mission of “eliminating educational disparity”, and have since provided academic aid to underprivileged youth in Indonesia.

 

Our members in Indonesia have this to say about the tutoring work. “Tutoring these young children,” says Carla Felisha: one of our tutors, “has been an incredible and enlightening experience. There is no better feeling than that of affecting someone’s life for the better, and teaching these kids to find joy in learning.”

EDU Beyond is grateful for the opportunity to have exacted change in these young children’s lives and will strive to continue to do so here in Indonesia. Our pledge to you — dear readers — is that our work will not stop, and certainly will make the world of tomorrow better than that of today.
