The Bukit Lawang Trust is a small scale grass roots charity, which means we can invest almost every penny you donate directly into the fantastic work that we do. It also means that we rely entirely on the kindness of strangers to keep providing free education for hundreds of students from seven different communities, it allows us to keep feeding our staff and their families and it ensures that those in need around the community never go hungry with our Jungle Food Project. Without you, nothing we do would be possible.
That's why we would like to take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of the kindness and generosity our sponsors and followers have shown us over the years. Sadly our work is never done and so we need your support to keep us running. take a look at some of the different ways you can make a real positive and lasting difference to the world we live in, by supporting us today.
Sponsor the transport for an entire village:
Do something truly phenomenal!
One of our goals is to eradicate financial poverty by 2050. Our education programs directly work towards this goal, and to ensure that everyone has equal access to that education, regardless of financial capacity. We proudly provide transport for all of our students to and from our Hub in Bukit Lawang. Allowing us to provide free education to nearly 300 students from 7 different rural communities along the border of the Tropical Leuser Ecosystem.
You can help us by sponsoring the cost of transport for the students from one or more of these communities by signing up as one of our 'Transport Sponsors'. For a small monthly contribution you can personally ensure that up to 60 students receive an education.
As well as that, you will receive email updates on how your class is doing in their lessons, messages from the staff and students and pictures of the students hard at work, enjoying the education that you have directly facilitated!
