This year, in the build up to Christmas, as you busy yourself with shopping and decorating, we ask you to consider buying one extra gift. One for our students here in Bukit Lawang.
Every week of December, we will be announcing a project for which we desperately need your generosity.
Third Week of December
During the third week of Christmas, my true love gave to me...... University fees for Teacher Training!!
In January 2020, our very own teacher Tri is returning to University for three terms, in order to specialise in primary learning. Tri has done so much for the Trust over the years and we would love to help her gain the qualification.
Tri's term fees are 3 million rupiah per term - which is the equivalent of £165 GBP every 6 months - This is just £28 per month.
If you think that you can help, please do not hesitate to contact the Trust. Simply email us at with the subject line 'Tri' and let us know how much you think you can contribute! If just 3 sponsors agree to give £10 per month, we can ensure that Tri can get the Education that she needs to follow her dream.
Second Week of December
During the second week of Christmas, my true love gave to me....... a donation towards our students Graduation!
In April, many of our Kindergarten students will graduate from the Trust and go on to study in State schools! We try to do our best to make this day memorable for our students and thus are asking for your help.
If you are able to help make Graduation memorable, then please donate via our Paypal, with the reference 'Graduation'.
Any donation, no matter how small, can be a really priceless gift to our students.
First week of December:
During the first week of Christmas, my true love gave to me....... a trip for our Kindergarten!
Once a year we like to treat our youngest students to a day out of Bukit Lawang, where they get a chance to see a world outside the village!
If you are able to help with this project at all, then please donate via our Paypal, with the reference 'TK Trip'.
Any donation, no matter how small, can be a really priceless gift to our students, as it will enable them to have a day out that they will never forget. Not all education happens within the classroom and we see such extra-curricular activities as essential to providing our students with the best education possible.
Our #lookbutdonttouch campaign was launched in October 2019. The campaign was the result of our frustration with pictures on social media of malpractice in the Jungle regarding wild animals. We felt that many tourists were unfairly placing pressure on guides due to a lack of education about wild animal welfare. The goal of this campaign is to educate people that touching wild animals can be harmful to them. We believe that their lives are worth more than your instagrams. We have been working in partnership with Green Hill Bukit Lawang over this issue and we invite you call to share our hashtags #lookbutdonttouch #badselfie #nofeeding and #keepwildanimalswild on all your social media.
For those interested in donating a tree as part of this campaign, our paypal is info@bukitlawangtrust
Trees cost just £1 and use the #lookbutdonttouch as your reference.
