Blast from the Past

Bandung, Indonesia – 1964

We’re traveling back to the ’60s with this photo!  It depicts a National Training Centre in Bandung where teachers received a year’s training in community education, and then became village community supervisors after completing the training.

Today–46 years later–World Education Indonesia supports disadvantaged youth through the ConnectEd program; helps reach Indonesia’s teachers, administrators, and students through the PRIORITAS program; and aims to reduce poverty by providing low-income people with microfinance opportunities through Good Return.
