BACKGROUND

Gondang 5 Primary School is located in the village of Lotok Gitak, near the town of Gondang. The community’s main source of income is farm labouring. All of the school’s original classrooms were destroyed in the 2018 Lombok earthquakes. While some temporary structures were provided afterward, they have deteriorated over time and lacked ventilation and windows. Even after receiving five permanent replacement classrooms, the school encountered difficulties, with two class groups forced to continue their studies in the deteriorating temporary structures. Additionally, two of the school’s class groups were significantly oversized, necessitating the division into smaller groups and highlighting a shortfall of four classrooms. Furthermore, the school lacked adequate toilet facilities.

OUTCOMES

Classroom of Hope, together with our local partner, provided SDN 5 Gondang with four Block classrooms and four toilets. The blocks are made from recycled plastic, earthquake-resistant, and certified to last up to 100 years. The classrooms are fully furnished with desks, chairs, whiteboards, and storage. The toilets provide clean sanitary facilities to the students and are equipped with hand washing stations for good hygiene.
