making a difference to the lives of 25 unschooled Indonesian children....BISA - Djakarta

Published May 31st, 2012

Conceived, designed and managed by students in the IB Diploma program at The British International School, Sekolah Bisa! is a life enhancing institution for 25 shanty-dwelling primary age Indonesian children who formerly did not enjoy access to school.



Mission.Provide an education for shanty dwelling Indonesian boys and girls, daily, in fulfillment of key UNICEF Declaration of the Rights of The Child articles.



Sekolah BISA is a new school concept wholly created by CAS students of IB schools in Jakarta: The British International School, Jakarta (BIS); Bandung International School (BIS); BINUS and Sinar Mas World Academy. The 'Microschool', Sekolah Bisa, is supported by The Body Shop Indonesia, and opened April 8th 2011.



We are well on our way to making a difference to the lives of 25 unschooled Indonesian children.



Our Main objective: To provide an education and a chance to those who were told from the beginning that they wouldn't get one. Our goal is to alter the originally set course of these children's lives. In 6 weeks, our first SB! graduates, Agus, Noval, Ipul and Rita will move to a new school. A year ago, each was more or less defined by (and confined to) a shanty - without recourse; without expectation. In waste. Lives laid waste. But now, those same children have severed the bonds which appeared to have ensnared them.



From a shanty, emerges a scholar. And from the scholar, emerges wisdom. And from wisdom (itself an aggregation of the collective store from which we all draw) the only possible means of self-realization. The shanty yields up its profundities, and by such we are all illumined. Without such, we grope in the dark.
