Our Mission

lang.We are helping one child at a time to quality education at little or no cost, to the student who need it most.

Lentera Bagi Bangsa is an intiative by Yayasan Pendidikan Pelita Harapan (Pelita Harapan Education Foundation) to support and encourage limited financial students in the Sekolah Lentera Harapan (SLH) network.

Sekolah Lentera Harapan (SLH) is a chain of 67 school units (Kindergarten, Primary, Junior, and Senior School) across 9 provinces in Indonesia. SLH’s mission is to serve students from limited financial families by transforming lives through quality holistic education. Currently, SLH serves approximately 10,100 students, and all students are partially or fully subsidized by the YPPH. Our mission is to provide quality education at little or no cost to the students who need it most.

Quality Education
Sekolah Lentera Harapan (SLH) uses proven educational approaches to achieve the best educational outcomes. We provide each school with qualified teachers who can inspire and be role models for the students

  • 100% teacher with S1 qualifications or above.
  • Above 90% teachers hold two bachelor’s degrees from Universitas Pelita Harapan Teachers College (Indonesia) and Corban University (USA).
  • Government approved quality curriculum that is professionally reviewed and renewed each year.

Why Education?

We believe education is a fundamental right for all children.

According to the statistics from Badan Kependudukan dan Keluarga Berencana Nasional 2009 (National Board for Population and Family Planning) indicates that about 13 million children in Indonesia do not have the opportunity to obtain adequate literacy.

With proper education, students will be more likely to break the circle of poverty, live healthier lives, mature socially and phychologically, contribute to the Indonesian economy and be future leaders in their society.
