About the local hosting organizationAl-Ishlah Foundation is an Islamic organization concerns on global education for all. It highlights one value that Islam brings peace for the universe. The foundation provides shelters, middle and high schools for students with low economic background coming from any places in Indonesia. At the moment, more than 300 students registered in the two schools and one shelter. The middle school of Al-Ishlah has been doing construction works since last year. This was a program to prove more space and better facilities for their students. All of the resources to build this school were obtained through public donation. This is due to the fact that the school does not require fees from the students. Some adult students who study in high school of Al-Ishlah and those who live in the shelter sometimes give their hands. Last holiday season, a group of students from other schools joined the construction work voluntarily to get things done. However, a lot more to be done. In this circumstance, GREAT and Al-Ishlah Foundation would like to call for volunteers who have strong will and voluntary spirit, healthy and strong body to come and give your hands and work together to build this school. Two international workcamps in a row are prepared to help out building this school
