Sekolah Gunung Merapi Campaign Finished

We’ve finished our fundraising campaign for our friends at Sekolah Gunung Merapi with a fantastic result of nearly $700 over our goal. A huge thank you to all our wonderful supporters for their generosity. The extra money means that we will absolutely be able to make repairs to the school building as well as buy more books and school supplies than we’d originally anticipated.

We’re pleased to announce that things are already underway for organising repairs, supplies and, of course, books for the school.

We’ve already bought our first batch of books for the kids!

We’ve also already bought supplies for the much-needed repairs to the school building!

Here are some photos to give you an idea of the condition of the school building at the moment.

We’ll have more updates soon as repairs get underway.

We reached our goal!

A big thank you to all our supporters for our first fundraising campaign. We’ve reached (and now surpassed) our goal of $1,250 to help our friends at Sekolah Gunung Merapi get repairs to their school building, develop their library and buy textbooks.

The campaign is still open for another couple of weeks, and you can find out more about what we’re trying to achieve and how you can help here.
