The project “Sekolah Pantai” (Beach School) refers to the establishment and development of a learning & health center, launched in early 2014. This is a new project under the auspices of “Project Child” in the coastal town of Pacitan on the island of Java, Indonesia. Close to the coast, the project will consist of a community center, including a “Learning Center”. The goal is to create regional cooperation with vulnerable children and their families on-site and in the coastal region of Pacitan. Our educational programs will be developed in cooperation with the communities to fit their individual needs and to establish our education program efficiently.
First project step:
After the land is properly prepared, construction of the “Learning Center”, can begin. It is in this centre that children will receive their primary education. This includes an open classroom area surrounded by gardens and green areas, offering the ideal environment for learning.
In addition, the “Learning Center” includes a library and pc work-stations, which will also provide enough space to be used as a study room for the teachers to prepare classes.
Further in this step there will be sanitary facilities installed which include two toilettes and a shower.
As an educational institution Project Child Indonesia sees a high demand to expand the awareness of people in Indonesia about the basic element water. The first step is the installation of a water filtration system in the new, by Project Child founded Beach School, the Sekolah Pantai in Pacitan. Therefore, children who enlist the education programs of Sekolah Pantai, are given the opportunity to access potable water from the tab.
This practical project will be accompanied by specific education programs and projects that focus on the importance and the sustainable use of water. Furthermore, the installation of a water filtration system will not just be limited to Sekolah Pantai, but extended to primary schools in Pacitan. For this, the practical project will be accompanied again by specific education programs about the basic element water outside of Sekolah Pantai.
After the building structures have been finished, it is our aim to develop a permaculture garden which will be included in our educational programs in the most sustainable and ecological way.
