Our community development program is currently centred around three community libraries located in three villages: Desa Letekonda, Desa Lagalete, and Desa Hobawowi, all located in Sumba Barat Daya. Through various activities, we are trying to engage local government, organizations and community members to be more involved in improving the quality of education and maintaining the sustainability of the schools we rebuilt in the area. With two programs that are currently running – English Class and Reading Day – these libraries have become a favourite place for children to spend their free time.
In the long term, we envision these libraries to be a community centre. We hope to see more visitors of any age can gather, not only access various kind of reading materials but also hold various literacy-related activities. We also hope to work together with local community members to find or create resources that can support the sustainability of the schools
