In January 2017 two Latvian friends Inese & Inese had the amazing opportunity to visit BC Bright Course foundation, located in the rural village of Dasan Agung - Tanak Beak, central Lombok island, Indonesia where an enthusiastic English teacher Mr Tony (Ahmed Fatoni) is running English classes daily educating the local children and young adults as well as hosting some of them. For many of the jobless students Tony's classes are the gateway to work, because with the knowledge of English they are able to find better jobs. Together with his students and their families Tony built the building of the foundation in 2010 on his family's land. Since the number of Tony's students has grown from 3 to 120, the school building has now become too small for all the students wanting to learn English. Therefore BC Bright Course foundation is moving to a newly purchased piece of land near-by. They still need to pay the last payment of 10 000 000 IDR (approx. 610 GBP / 750 USD / 700 EUR) for the land and start construction work. BC Bright Course has also started organising eco tours for island's visitors to raise funds for the foundation.
Seeing Tony's enthusiasm, passion and love for his village, we have decided to create this fundraiser page, hoping that BC Bright Course will reach its goal soon. The foundation is always in need of teaching/learning materials, therefore we are hoping to raise as much as possible knowing that every penny counts! :-)

All funds raised here will go directly to BC Bright Course Foundation in Dasan Agung - Tanak Beak village, North Batukliang sub-district, district of Central Lombok, province of West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia.
Lots of love,
