Addressing before more than 170 audiences of Luxembourg middleclass societies at the Charity Dinner on 14 October 2011 in Mondrof, a small city in southern part of Luxembourg, Ambassador Arif Havas Oegroseno said that he deeply touched by the educational project done in a remote area in Indonesia since 1999 by Unity Foundation, a nonprofit NGO, supported by the government of Luxembourg. He also expressed appreciation and gratitude to the solidarity of the government and people of Luxembourg for their contributions for children in remote village.
This NGO in collaboration with the Indonesian NGO, Diversity in Unity (Bhinneka Tunggal Ika) have succeeded to create 13 Creative Education Centre (CEC) in North Sumatra and Mentawai regions, that some of them has become public schools managed by the local government. The projects are intended to assist these centers to educate children started in the kindergarten up to elementary school.
It is expected that these centers will become self-managed schools, said Ms. Umayah, the Chairperson of Bhinneka Tunggal Ika NGO who attended the charity dinner together with the founder of this NGO, Dr Tahmasebian, at the Charity Dinner for child education in Indonesia and Uganda.
