CareSumatra Helping Remote Communities In North Sumatra
Please join with us to provide opportunities for these beautiful people living in remote rural areas, by creating sustainable education, training and community programs that will make a real difference to their lives now and for future generations.
We would love you to help provide opportunities for the children, youth and women living in these disadvantaged communities, to help give them the skills and experience needed to seek employment opportunities or to set up micro business opportunities to provide income for their families.
By supporting our community programs you will also be helping to protect the fragile ecosystem these animals depend on, by ensuring people continue to flourish in harmony with nature.
We focus on local community projects that empower communities to restore and protect nature, which in turn ensures the long-term survival of the fragile ecosystem in which they live, ensuring communities continue to coexist in harmony with the wild orangutans and other animals that call this wildlife buffer zone home.
CareSumatra's goals for next 12 months are to:
1. Support young people through our youth skills and work experience programs.
2. Continuing to support children's education in remote rural villages, by providing free English, Indonesian and Environment lessons (white boards, equipment, mats, kids school packs, school resources, books, dictionaries)
3. Sponsor teachers salaries. It only costs $50 a month to pay a teacher for our free education programs. Children come along to learn English, Indonesian and the environment at our free Jungle School, Sunshine Class and Dream Class programs.
4. Build community toilet and wash blocks for remote rural communities, who do not have toilets or water connected to their homes, to provide them with safe water and sanitation.
4. Empowering local people to run community conservation, reforestation and wildlife monitoring programs. These programs not only give the local people a sustainable income, the programs in turn help protect the long term survival of the orangutans and animals that live in this Wildlife Biolink, through this community action to protect and restore this fragile ecosystem needed for their survival.
