Supporting Us to Educate Children
In a Christian Atmosphere
Why a private Christian School
Indonesia has more Muslims in the country than any other country, including the Middle East.
Angela Tobing became a Christian in an area that is considerd to be a hugh valley of Christians. The family moved to Stabat, Indonesia as her father was promoted bank office.
She has been working private schools for about 11 years. She has a strong desire to start her own private Christian school. She also has a goal of providing extend and preparation classes for the children and up thrugh adults.
The afternoon will be more indepth classes for English, Bible, Computer, business prep classes and more. Normally the school classes are from 7 AM to 1 PM and she wanted to do something more and came up with the idea to have these additional classes to keep children not to wander on the streets a give others additional education.
Having these extra classes she wanted not to only be for those going to the school but to help even up through adults. Most graduating from high school do not know anything of how to make a living. Most shops are just family but there are more and more business that need additional workers and staff. So as time progresses we want to help the older people learn how to work with computers, learn to be good employees and prepare some for staff members.
Some School Start-Up Costs
Starting up this school will be doable for all of you to get involved. We will have general school costs and some will be special projects that we will identify.
Our initial estimated start up costs, including no child fees for attending will be $4,000 for the first year. The rent for a large house will be around 4,000.000 Rupiah which is about $300.00 per year.
The monthly estimated costs for when we begin hiring teachers and helps will be around $2,000.00 per month. That will include the initial building to handle a School Office, bathrooms, 3 class rooms, teacher's lounge, prep-room, and playground area with "fun equipment."
Once we start then we will have additional growth plans for a hector to 3 hectors (3.5 to 10 acres of land? to begin building a school complex that will be large enough for the extended afternoon programs.
