BACKGROUND

Taman Sari Primary School is located in the village of Medas Bentaur, in Tanjung Region, North Lombok, Indonesia. Medas Bentaur has a population of 907, and their main source of income is picking and selling bamboo or construction work. All but one of the schools’ classrooms were destroyed in the 2018 Lombok earthquakes. Taman Sari Primary School had been operating in four temporary pop-up classrooms supplied by Classroom of Hope and Pelita Foundation. These temporary structures have now been replaced with six permanent Block classrooms.

OUTCOMES

SDN 4 Taman Sari consists of six fully furnished classrooms with desks and chairs, whiteboards, a filing cabinet, and a storage cupboard. This permanent structure provides a safe and motivating learning environment for 132 students and 12 teachers. Parents feel comfortable knowing that this Block School is earthquake-resistant, which will encourage them to allow their children to pursue education. The construction of the new building emphasises the importance of education to the whole community and provides an incentive for the children to complete their primary education.
