One nation’s foundation is reflected in its education system. Education is the main tool for setting the right path for students with great knowledge and skills. When teachers are well supported and students are well educated, our future generations are thriving. However, education in Indonesia remains an alarming situation. There are numerous regions and islands with uneven infrastructure development, resulting in an imbalance of support in cities and regencies that are less monitored, also known as the 3T (disadvantaged, frontier, and outermost) areas.
As many as 62 cities and regencies within 3T regions are lower than standard. Other than the lack of qualified teachers, these areas have a relatively high dropout rate. Almost all teachers in the 3T areas are far from having the support and development they needed, this contributes straightly to their welfare.
The most prominent educational challenges in the 3T area are:
- The high number of dropouts
- Teachers are less compensated, most receive their payments late
- Teachers do not have sufficient capacity to prevent children from dropping out of school
- Inadequate infrastructure
Collaboration in empowering and supporting these teachers is the key to overcoming the limitations experienced by education in 3T areas. Subsequently, we want to invite the community to be a part of the change by inviting everyone to contribute to this cause.
Coinciding the National Heroes’ Day, Yayasan Cinta Anak Bangsa (YCAB), FAB Indonesia, United Creative, and Benih Baik launched #HERO4EDU movement which will take place from November 6 to December 25, 2022. #HERO4EDU is a virtual running, walking, and biking event that can be done anywhere and anytime. Every IDR 100,000 donation equals 1KM walking/biking and 4KM cycling.
Through #HERO4EDU, YCAB, FAB Indonesia, United Creative, and Benih Baik aim to provide intervention to 5,000 teachers in 3T areas in the form of allowance and training. #HERO4EDU takes action to create change in the world of Indonesian education. YCAB wants to raise awareness and invite Indonesians to live healthy lives while making changes.
