Community English Classes in Gili Air

Our community classes have started thanks to all of your donations to our NGO. Tourism / English Classes at Gili Air’s elementary school are running for the next year thanks to all of you!

Mahatma Gandhi’s quote: “Be the change you want to see in the world,” has grown wings.

It feels so good to do something good. We had a fabulous meeting with the headmaster of Gili Air’s elementary school, and Pak Mus, the teacher supporting us. Our idea was to offer community classes for the children of Gili Air. As most of them, most likely will be working in the tourism industry, it felt right to give them the baggage for their future.

Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today. Malcolm X

During the salsa night at Slow Villas & Spa we raised enough money for 6 months tourism / English class for the children of Gili Air, and thanks to all your generous donations we raised enough to complete one year of community English classes.

Thank you to our partners that made all this possible @GiliTravelAgency @SlowVillas @SlowSpa @BlueMarineDive @Mandalablueyoga and a big thanks to all the people who came to dance salsa for charity!

Next gathering, we raise money for music Angklung community classes.

Music education can help spark a child’s imagination or ignite  a lifetime of passion.

Stay tuned for more charity events for Gili Air, @GiliNetworking.
