Bukit Lawang – Jungle Trekking

Many of the supplies on the needs list can be purchased locally. Our team is happy to organise this together with you locally. It would be our pleasure to bring you to the Bukit Lawang Trust Education Centre so that you can hand over the items yourself to the children and school team and if you have time, you can even volunteer for a few hours with us.

If you would like to do it this way, please contact us here: info@bukitlawang-jungletrekking.com TERIMA KASIH-THANK YOU

Project

The Bukit Lawang Trust Education is a charitable trust in the small and rural village Bukit Lawang, Northern Sumatra.
Children from all ages are provided lessons in English and environmental conservation for free. We believe education is the best route out of poverty and to the opportunity for a better life for the future.

Bukit Lawang Trust also wishes to empower and enable the local community to protect and look after the Gunung Leuseur National Park. We hope through education the locals will find alternative sources of income to palm oil and work together to protect the Gunung Leuser National Park.

An asterisk (*) before an item indicates this item is most urgently needed.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of March 22, 2019

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
