In February 2013 we visited the Darul Funun school for the very first time. Located in the hills in the Bogor area on the island of Java this school is run by the visionairy principal Pak Saffarudin. This dedicated teacher and head of the school had a dream. With his elementary school he provides the kids of the Tangkil village with a basic education. But after they finish and leave the school, most of the kids are sent to work or get married. That’s because middle school, as opposed to elementary school, is not free.
