BACKGROUND

Karya Lotara Junior High School is situated in the northern region of Lombok, Indonesia. It’s a combined community encompassing Muslim, Buddhist, and Hindu traditions, where the majority of families derive their livelihood farming fruit plantations. The school infrastructure underwent significant damage during the 2018 Lombok earthquakes. Students and teachers were using three rooms, to accommodate three class groups, a staff room, headmaster’s office and library. The school had just started the construction of two new classrooms when the 2018 disaster struck, and the classrooms were never completed.

OUTCOMES

SMPS Karya Lotara Block School consists of two fully furnished classrooms fitted with lights, fans, and power points and fully furnished with desks and chairs, whiteboards, a filing cabinet, and a storage cupboard. Four new Block Toilets have also been built at the school to ensure improved sanitation standards and prevent hygiene-related illnesses. This permanent structure provides a safe and motivating learning environment for the students and teachers. Parents will feel comfortable knowing that the 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.
