Yayasan Pendidikan Harapan Papua is a non-profit organization bringing education and healthcare to remote villages in Papa's interior mountainous region, among the most underdeveloped on the planet. These villages in interior Papua have no electricity, internet connection, or economic activities. Some even still use the barter system of economy. The Sekolah Lentera Harapan schools we set up are free-of-charge. Therefore we fundraise to give people the opportunity to take part in building Papua.
It is a truly privilege and joy to take part in this ministry. To witness the grateful hearts of the Papuan people, even amid their hardship and lack of resources. Rain or shine, students walk barefoot for hours each day to go to schools and listens to teachers wholeheartedly with undivided attention as they thirst for knowledge These children also have serving hearts as they give the best harvest and hike for hours to find clean water for their teachers.
Within a few months of learning, local Papuan students transistion from understanding numbers one to three to undertaking basic mathematics. They have also quickly grasped learning a new language, Bahasa Indonesia, enabling them to read and write. How quickly the children learn testifies to the resilience and aptitude of the local Papuan children.
Join us in this priviledge to educate Papuan children. Together we can transform more lives and communities through quality education.
