SMPK Santo Yohanes Kalembu Lona was established in 2015 to offer secondary education to children in the Reda Pada village and nearby areas in Indonesia. The school previously operated in an inadequate wooden and bamboo structure with no doors or windows and many holes in the walls, which made it difficult for teachers and students to concentrate. In late 2022, Happy Hearts Indonesia (HHI) and the Acronis Cyber Foundation Program constructed a new, earthquake-resistant school building with three classrooms, two toilets, and two hand-washing stations. HHI also provided training to teachers and students on various topics, including financial management, disaster preparedness, and school hygiene.
To further enhance the educational opportunities for the 59 students at SMPK Santo Yohanes Kalembu Lona, we aim to provide a computer classroom with 22 laptops and a projector. To support this initiative, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
