SHOOL IN PARADISE
A non-profit organization focusing on children’s education on the island of Lombok, Indonesia.
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
School in Paradise is one of the non-profit organizations dedicated to the education of children and youth on the island of Lombok, Indonesia. We have been operating in Lombok since 2013 when we started a school construction project in Petiwung. We are currently working extensively with several local entities, focusing mainly on covering English language teaching in specialised language courses. We strive to continuously improve the quality of English teaching and enable children to choose their own future. We also actively seek out potential local partners interested in collaborating and improving the quality of education.
The association was founded in 2016 by Andrea Stárková, Marcel Žitník and Filip Žitník. Andrea provides on-site teaching, facilitates volunteers’ contact with local partners, organizes various events for children and actively seeks out locations where locals are interested in cooperation. She also teaches in selected schools and courses. Filip and Marcel Žitníkovi, from the Go2 Travel Agency, provide financial resources for the training and deal with organisational matters related to the running of the organisation.
Education is the foundation for a better future.
