Educating the Children For a Brighter Future
Shangri-La Surabaya has long been committed to social responsibility. Since 2020, we adopted young children from SD Tanwir along with its 96 elementary school students and 51 kindergarten students for our Embrace project. We provide engaging activities, educative classes, parental training to the kids' parents, and helping to refurbish the classes. The school is located in a rural area and is owned by the villagers. Daily operation is supported by BOS (Government Fund) and village funds but the school still needs more funding to support its operation.
The students’ parents are surrounding villagers and blue-collar workers with minimum income. The school constantly struggles to provide proper facilities such as washrooms, classrooms, a canteen, library, computer lab, and properly stocked clinic. Shangri-La Surabaya is helping and supporting in the above areas through volunteer work and organising monthly activities to improve the school's facilities.
