With the development of the Internet, continuous learning and gaining new skills is inevitable in the technology era. However, in some remote and suburban areas, it still seems like a challenging process. For this reason, in early May 2021, Hostinger and Niagahoster started a significant milestone to provide better and more proper education facilities in Indonesia by rebuilding Wali Ate Middle School.
The school facility is located in Wali Ate, Southwest Sumba, East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. Sumba is one of over 550 islands of Nusa Tenggara Timur and is considered one of Indonesia’s most impoverished and underdeveloped areas. Most households have no electricity, running water, or adequate sanitation. Whereas children lack the opportunity to access proper education.
Therefore, choosing Indonesia was not accidental. Hostinger and our subsidiary Niagahoster are fortunate to build a school in a country where we have offices ourselves. We recognize it as an opportunity to be close to the local community and see the direct impact on the learning environment.
With the help of implementing partner Happy Hearts Indonesia, children in Sumba, Indonesia, will receive education in a safe, earthquake-resilient school building. To achieve this goal, renovations were carried out, from rebuilding classrooms, sanitation, toilets to providing books and stationery for teaching and learning purposes. After reconstruction Happy Hearts Indonesia will conduct WASH (Water, Sanitation & Hygiene) as well as disaster readiness training to educate students, teachers and communities. Additionally, teacher and school management programs together with literacy courses for students will be run for five years to guide each school toward self-sustainability.
The spirit of #BuildSuccessOnline and unlocking the power of the Internet is the incentive for Hostinger and Niagahoster to develop products and share its technology and benefits with millions of people worldwide by giving them tools and facilities to learn, create, and grow. We hope this great initiative is only the beginning for future endeavours broadening horizons!
