We are Dedicated to the environment & Education
We Use the Environment to
Anak Alam Learning House is a grassroots initiative working to address the root causes of climate change through environmental sustainability education and permaculture programs. Our education program teaches local children about the importance of the environment and empowers them to share their knowledge with their families and friends, allowing them to be the seeds for change in our community.
Through our permaculture initiatives, we are provide our students with hands-on learning opportunities to put their new knowledge into practice while co-creating a more sustainably designed community to aid in waste management, environmental preservation, and sustainable enterprise development.
Now that our learning center and farm have been constructed, we are building a cafe, production center, and store to generate revenue to support our program in the long-term while creating new vocational learning opportunities for our students to gain skills and experience in the service, hospitality, production & manufacturing, and retail industries.
We are also working to establish an adult permaculture education program due to the demand from our community members.
We provide education to children in rural Indonesia through environmental awareness and waste reduction lessons to increase our students’ understanding of the importance of the environment and how to construct a healthy relationship between humans and the planet.
We envision a world constructed of sustainable communities that prioritize earth care, people care, and fair share practices over profit. A world where villagers in rural communities in Indonesia are empowered with the knowledge, equipment, and skills they need to sustain their communities both financially and environmentally. A world were future generations are empowered with access to education and opportunity to build a better world together.
