About

Join us in our efforts to cultivate and advance the education program and school facilities of Gili Asahans public school, and other future collective community projects, through the newly founded NGO: Kids of Asahan. Due to its remote location the school and instructors suffered serious neglect over the years since it was founded, leaving the kids of the 36 inhabitant families of Gili Asahan with very poor educational conditions. It was the kids thirst for knowledge and consistently smiling faces that inspired us to start Kids of Asahan; A program intended tosustain and improve the school by providing better teacher salary, and more teachers for the various age groups, as well as simple necessities such as school books, pens and recreational equipment in the short term plans and to improve the structure of the buildings as one of our long term goals.
