Madrasah Tsanawiyah Bustanul Yatama, constructed in 2004, is a small boarding school and currently having 157 Students. Most students are orphan and from poor families. The operational expenses are fully funded by Bustanul Yatama foundation. There are no school fees applied for student. All students are given free education.
The school lacks proper infrastructure: having no enough classroom, no teacher room, no toilet nor sanitation. Thus makes students and teacher having rough day everyday at school. Not only student and teacher must study in alternative improper place, they also had to go out of school area just to use the toilet at nearby houses. Meanwhile, The central government doesn't seem to focus on school development in inland area, while local government has limited fund. The school itself has been struggling for years due to this matter and currently needs help desperately.
There are many children in Aceh whom live without proper life support and unable to study due to economical issue, mosf of children unable to continue their education to High School. Bustanul Yatama Foundation has been actively providing social service and education for children since 1994 and so far has helped hundreds (if not thousand) of children in North Aceh and Sumatera. Besides providing them their daily needs and education, the Foundation also helps empower the community that includes teachers, students, parents, and local authority. Our goal is to create a stronger community that will sustain the school, bring awareness and the importance of education for children.
