Basic education for the poorest children
Sukajadi is of one of the poorest village in Bogor district, West Java. The are high number of drop out students from elementary school around the village. There are 6 elementary school. Many of the graduated students cannot continue to the next level, because of economy problem..
The families of these children don't have money to bring them to school. They have no future. If they don't go to school then at this moment the future is not really positive because of economical problem of the families. On the long term, the are become more poorest. That the are did not have formal education and skill to bargain the open competitive labour market.
The government is supporting a little bit with building construction, operational cost. But is too little because limited annual budget both of local government central government. Al Muttaqien junior school established on 2003, The location near from the settlement of the poor families. The Al Muttaqien is providing free education to the students. We call Al Muttaqien school is the school for the poorest, free payment for the entire school program.
Lack of facilities
By January 2019, the students that devided into 9 classes. The teachers and staffs are 22 persons (included official staff, cleaning service and security),. Starting on 2012, the school received operational budgets as subsides from government for students scholarship, teachers, staff , but its only sufficient to cover 50% of real operational cost.
40 % of student are the poorest family, cannot pay monthly education such as Rp. 75.000/months (U$.5).We faind out through fund raising and donation but still not enough.
Thus that mention earlier, income the teacher and staff, only 50% minimum standard income, related to the goverment policy.
The need to support
By the year 2018, SMIT Al Muttaqin deided into 12 classes, using for Language Labolatorium, Computer Labolatorium, library, teacher space, administration office, meeting room and YPMUI Foundation Office. There are also sport area for badminton and futsal sport area.
Recently the local government has been supported to build and construct 2 new class room that scheduled to complete by
end of February 2019. However, the support of Rp. 200.000.000 is only enough to construct 2 new classes room and yet both classroom needs to have all education standard equipment for education activities. These are including, table, student desks and chairs, black and white board, books, corner libary, and all other supporting learning media.
These new classes are to absorb the new students as the school plan is to receive 70 new students in the 2019-2020 school periods. Therefore the total number of students will become 275 students by the new school period of 2019-2020.
The demographic income population within the area is mostly from family working at agricultural (labour), housing assistance, motorcycle taxi, selling crops at the traditional markets, etc.
Therefore, their income is low that makes them difficult to have their kids to have school education due to lack of income. However, they are enthusiastically with the school presence as it may raise hope for their kids better future.
Therefore, the number of students apply to this school is rose during the past years.
The impact is that the school is bare heavier operational cost as the incoming new students coming from family that
cannot contribute for monthly school while the expenses and needed for adequate
education support and facilities is also raise. These includes; students
material, teachers support, maintenance, etc.
To summarize the school is in need of Help and Support from outside world donation in
