Pak Nandar has been working in Yayasan Cinta Baca (Love Reading Foundation) for 1,5 years as regional coordinator.
Their goal is to raise the interest in reading among children and teenagers from low income families or rural areas and providing non formal education as community learning center. They operate 135 libraries all over Indonesia.
In the headquarters they run four programs:
- Kejar Baca: Program for children to learn to read and reading story books to them.
- Kejar Cerdas: Workshop program for parents, especially mothers, to train them how to read story books to children.
- Kejar Sehat: Workshop and training program for parents especially mothers for a clean and healthy lifestyle. They also teach the parents about a clean and sustainable environment.
- Kejar Luhur: Training program for character building.
Pak Nandar expects that our green books will support the Kejar Baca and the Kejar Cerdas programs as they lack books about sustainability and the environment.
