Sumatra Dream Class

Indonesia | Sumatra
Type of project:
September, 2019
WHAT DO WE NEED?

It is a community that is located on the border of the Gunung Leuser National Park, so it is imperative that its habitants have knowledge of environmental conservation.
That is why they are taught environmental education together with English classes, essential for them to have a good working future.

Supplies needed at the moment:
– 25 Bahasa Indonesia to English translation dictionaries
– A laptop to teach teenagers how to use it
– Whiteboard pens and erasers
– Grammar and English vocabulary school books.

Volunteers: People who want to teach things related to the conservation of animals and the environment to young people and children in the community will also be welcome. English teachers who want to give some training to the teachers of the project.

Things that are being done:
Collection and cleaning of plastics that along the river and the village to make ecobricks (plastic bottles filled with other used plastics) and with them build bins to put in the village. Development of bags and mats with the plastic bags collected, thus making a second useful use of these bags.
All this as activities to make changes with children and adolescents, thus making them aware of reducing the use of plastic and recycling it to keep the town clean.

All kinds of help will be welcome!



HOW TO GET?

Porli, Langkat, Sumatera

El aeropuerto principal es el de Medan Kualanamu. Una vez allí se puede coger un coche privado hasta este pueblo que puede ser organizado por la misma organización que lleva el proyecto. También se puede ir en autobús hasta la ciudad de Medan y coger una mini van en la estación de autobuses Pinang Baris hasta Porli.


AND IF YOU COME, we recommend that you visit

Batu Rongring se encuentra a tan sólo 15 minutos en moto del pueblo. Desde allí se empiezan los trekkings al Parque Nacional de Gunung Leuser donde puedes explorar y rastrear a los animales salvajes. Se pueden llegar a ver varios tipos de primates incluidos los orangutanes! Y no dejar de lado el resto de flora y fauna que hay en este parque nacional, el tercero con más biodiversidad de todo el mundo. También hay unas termas de azufre que se pueden visitar, un árbol gigante que yo no he visto antes uno igual, acampar en la selva, entre otras cosas.
