Our Founding Story

In 2020, we started an in-person program that offers English and math classes at the primary and secondary levels after we saw the need for learning centers. However, just as we were about to start registering students for our program in Jakarta, the covid-19 pandemic struck, forcing us to shut down before we had even begun. 

Since we were unable to begin our in-person classes, we decided to switch to an online program in June 2020. Taking into account our students’ access to resources, we began our lessons by using simple tools such as WhatsApp and Zoom meetings. As our program developed, we were able to integrate more platforms like Google Classrooms and launch a GED program to encourage our students to have a formalized educational equivalency.
