Yesterday!

We celebrated our Wisuda! Wisuda is the picture taking ceremony before the graduation. All our kids took individual photos, and a group one here too!

After the pictures the children took a karaoke bus around the area singing and having a blast!

Tomorrow is our graduation ceremony in the morning and then a party for our primary school children in the afternoon!

Looking back and reminiscing about last week's football game!Our kids had such a blast. Thanks again to @surionomasno
and Green Class!

In addition to learning English and doing conservation classes at Bukit Lawang Trust its important to do sport, have fun, and learn about teamwork.

Everybody meet Pesek and her baby! Pesek is a semi wild orangutan who lives in the forest around Bukit Lawang. She is absolutely gorgeous, and not shy at all when it comes to seeing people. One of our volunteers took these pictures of her across the river from the Camping Ground.
If you are fortunate to come across orangutans please keep your distance, and do not feed them. Bacteria, disease, and viruses can be passed on to orangutans from humans and they do not have the immune system to deal with human diseases and vise versa.

Thank you to much Suriono Masno Imam Fadillah Sutiek No Lily Mo Sara Black!

On Saturday in Gotong Royong we played a football match against Green Class! Green Class is an amazing after school program led by local volunteers and we support them as often as we can.

The kids played so well and we noticed we have a few stars! Great job everyone!

It's very important to get this kids out of the classroom and learning in the community! Our lovely volunteer @surkanidhuibh has been teaching the children about rivers all week and what better way to learn about nature, and new vocabulary than to go down to the river!

Thank you so much @orangutaninformationcentre! In developing a fun, creative, practical, and necessary curriculum for our nature class we are blessed to have some good friends to help us out!

The good people at @orangutaninformationcentre gave us a ton of books most of which aren't pictured but all students will be receiving Tersesat di Kebun and a notebook with a cute orangutan on the front and important facts about the Leuser ecosystem on the first page.

Thanks so much! Collaboration is key!

Hello everyone! Today our lovely students, @piresvinicius_ and @erginohomestayz planted seeds! We are building a robust curriculum that will include not just conservation, the wildlife, and environmental issues in the region but permaculture as well.

Permaculture is especially important for the children in this area to learn about because it is a sustainable alternative to palm oil. Palm oil takes so much water from the earth that it severely damages the soil. Last year at our conservation festival a PhD student presented her research and showed that it takes fifteen years for the soil to recover and bring a healthy yield.

This area, Indonesia, and communities around the world are heavily affected by harmful actions toward the environment and preparing them with the knowledge to best adapt and create a sustainable lifestyle is more important than ever!

A huge thank you to @xtinct1 Jess McKelson and these lovely ladies from Jungle Sistas! These ladies donated tons of toys, art supplies, snacks, and more! The kids greeted them with a couple of songs and were thrilled to get some snacks and shirts!

More exciting is the material that we'll have and be able to use for the classes!

It is also great to have visitors and talk about how our staff, teachers, and volunteers make this such a fantastic place!

Today two of our volunteers traveled about an hour from Bukit Lawang to teach six high school classes in Sibertong. The children, teachers, and staff were absolutely lovely. They even spoke English better than you'd think!
The journey was bittersweet however as the whole drive to and from is covered in palm oil plantations.

We have a lot of work to do!
