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 programs in education and environment that will make a real difference to their lives now and for future generations.
We would love you to help provide opportunities for the women and children living in disadvantaged communities, to learn to read and write and help them set up micro business opportunities to provide dignity and income for their families.
By supporting our community and conservation programs you will also be helping to protect the fragile ecosystem these animals depend on, ensuring people flourish in harmony with nature.
We focus on local community and conservation projects that empower communities to restore and protect nature, ensuring the long-term survival of the wild orangutans and other animals that live in this wildlife buffer zone.
CareSumatra's goals for next 12 months are to:
1. Support the homeless women living behind the market through micro business initiatives and plastic up-cycling projects
2. Support young people through youth skills and work experience programs and education. Continuing to support disadvantaged children by providing free English and Indonesian lessons for homeless children, who desperately want to learn to read and write in Indonesian and English (white boards, equipment, mats, kids school packs, school resources)
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 homeless and disadvantaged families, who do not have toilets or water connected to their homes
5. RAINFOREST RESCUE! Join us to rescue the rainforest in the Batu Kapal Wildlife Corridor, piece by piece, metre by metre for less than the price of a cup of coffee a day! By supporting our conservation, reforestation and wildlife monitoring programs, you will help protect the long term survival of the orangutans and animals that live in this Wildlife Biolink, by protecting the fragile ecosystem needed for their survival.
