Jage Kastare Foundation - Lombok - Indonesia
Jage Kastare Foundation is a community learning centre working on promoting educational development, cultural preservation, and arts appreciation for kids and teenagers at Ungge village. Our activities and programs are designed to get the students to having a broader view about the world around them and preventing them from feeling inferior. Helping the students believe in their potentials, making them motivated in learning and be confident about themselves are some first goals to achieve. Raising their awareness to love the village and act on what needs to be done in social and environmental fronts is also our long term goal. The implementations can be seen in the program. One of them is English language teaching. The purpose is not only to prepare them to be more ready for their future aspirations where English is likely to be a part of them. It is more importantly a tool to introduce global understanding and tolerance. Through the language, we teach global geography, diversity among us, and that we are all should be positive about it. We invite people from all over the world to share stories and interact in English with the kids. It’s not only an authentic language learning experience but also a way of promoting understanding among people and boosting their confidence in communication.
