Our Work In Batam
Batam is a newly industrialized island with many multi-national factories and international resorts. It is an hour’s ferry ride from Singapore. Almost all of the people of Batam have recently come from other provinces of Indonesia to look for work in its factories and tourist establishments. Most of these new migrants are poor rural folk. Many of them need help to adjust to their new environment and the demands of working in foreign-owned and managed companies.
Goducate has started two learning centers to provide opportunities to learn English, computer skills and leadership skills. Goducate will also start kindergartens in both its learning centers soon. The centers will then teach little children in the mornings, older children in the afternoons, and college-age youth and adults in the evening.
Goducate also intends to start a “home away from home” for new migrants who have no place to stay while looking for work. When this is started, Goducate learning centers will be fully utilized throughout the twenty-four hours of each day!
