  • Description

    Description

    This is a Vocational High School, it was founded in 1987 by Dr. Silahudin MA, father of the actual Principal.
    The purpose of the creation of this vocational school was to teach children improve and develop their skills and gain experience while learning civic and human rights. This way, we try to give them the proper education to go through school and graduation, while building their path for their future and University.

    Most of the students are from Sukabumi, but we have 35 who are living in the school, but in total we have a number of 800 of children registered in the school.
    In this sense, the goal of the school is to achieve education for everyone, and so, over half of our students enjoy free accommodation and instruction, those involve children who have no economic means to get education.

    As a vocational school we have a range of courses focus on professional skills and art, that is increasing through the years and with staff and volunteer support.
    When the school was founded, we started with a Marketing course that followed more artistic and creative courses to give more opportunities for the children's future.
    By now, we are proud to had completed up to six programmes and others coming up, giving the financial difficulties and the professional limitations.
    At the moment, we are teaching fashion and design, animation and acting, music, singing and dancing arts, automotive and culinary art.

    Our goal is to increase this number and to implement language programmes, even we already have English and German teachers, but it's still not very structured. We also want to promote civic and human rights, to give them a better knowledge of the world, cultures and society, so they are more tolerant, as main values of their education.
    Also, we aim to rise them in a more international environment so they can absorb other ways of life and habits and have a better approach of the outside and be able to practice other languages and wide their knowledge.

    That's the reason why we have started our volunteer (or intern) programme, to encourage people from all over the world to come and help the children and our staff to implement more programmes and continue to lead children through a better future.
