Educating Indonesia’s Poorest
October 26, 2011
To mark Indonesia’s National Literacy Day on October 21, The Asia Foundation’s Books for Asia program distributed 3,250 books to almost 50 Community Learning Centers across Jakarta. Located in low-income neighborhoods, these government-supported centers play a crucial role in providing free, out-of-school education for the country’s at-risk children. Community members provide after-school tutoring, public school-equivalent lessons for drop-outs, and vocational training to help keep children off the streets. This slideshow offers a glimpse into the important work being done by these vital learning centers.
