TERIMA KASIH-THANK YOU
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.

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.
