  • Description


    Hi! I am Danny and I am from a very small Village in North Lombok. I am a hard working family guy that loves to meet new people and my family would love to welcome you to our place.

    My village is 1 hour north east from Bangsal. It was in the center of the 2018 Lombok Earthquake. Before the devastating earthquake occurred, I taught English to local children in a house that I borrowed from a neighbour. This was destroyed during the earthquake and now we have nowhere to study.

    It has now been 10 months since the earthquake and I am looking for people to help me restart my english school. My dream is to someday have a dedicated area which will include both a school and a small lodging for foreign English teachers to stay. I hope that someday the kids can use and speak English well so they can have a brighter future.

    The project is still in very early stages and I need help to:
    1. Raise money to buy land
    2. Once we have the land, build the school and lodging
    3. Teach English to the children

    Whilst waiting for the school to be built, I will teach the children in a temporary space (maybe my home). I need your help with this.

    If you can help me with my dream and want to explore my beautiful village I will be very proud and grateful.

    Greetings from North Lombok

    Right now I need immediate help to raise funds to buy land so we can start building the school.

    I also need help to restart my English classes once I find a temporary place to teach the children. My English is not so good so I hope you can help me to run the classes with the children and make my village better with foreign languages.

    Workawayers can stay at my house and they can also have private space for sleeping. I can prepare local food at breakfast time with local coffee and black tea, lunch with Nasi Putih/rice and vegetables like Pelecing Kangkung, Pecel and other. For dinner they also can ask me what they want to eat maybe like Fresh grilled fish with rice and roasted chicken.
