Date: March 2012
Partners: Quake Fund and Sokola Rimba
SIAB learned of Sokola Rimba through previous Disaster Relief donations to Quake Fund. Sokola, derived from the Orang Rimba pronunciation of the word sekolah, or school in Indonesian, teaches basic education including reading, writing and life skills that are tailored to the requirements of the indigenous Arimba communities.
To accommodate the needs of the Arimba children and to make them culturally specific, the SchoolBags had saris and rain coats added to the contents which include stationery, exercise books and a water bottle. Once the SchoolBags had been restocked, the final leg of their journey was a 3hr boat trip up river to reach the Arimba Community.
