Our first project was to build and equip the Fly Free Centre which was used as a shelter and school in the aftermath of the earthquakes.  Many children were left orphaned or homeless but all  are now back with family members, so the building is used full time for education.

All education is free for the poorer families. Our aim is to help them to help themselves – education is the way forward. Our students at Fly Free school are taught to a high standard and we are proud to announce that 60% of our leaving students have jobs. This is an amazing record in Java.
