Prumpung: The First Tutorial Centre
SA Prumpung was the first Sahabat Anak tutorial center, established as a follow up to the Sahabat Anak Jamboree in 2000. The local branch was established as a response to the enthusiasm of the children who mostly worked as street singers. These children have problems catching up with their school lessons and this hinders their progress in reading, writing and numeracy.
SA Prumpung began with 20 children, this has now grown to 202 children who participate in regular classes. Recently, teenage students have also been involved in teaching the younger children. The involvement of mentors in this program is an important step towards community development.
In September 2008, SA Prumpung rented a local house, which would become our tutorial house. The centre hosts our tutorial sessions and also is a place where we can coordinate other activities. The centre also houses all our study tools and books for the library program.
In 2009, the volunteers decided to rent another house, this became known as the Prumpung Learning House. This decision was in response to the number of growing children who were being supported by the library program, through Rotary Club International.
Currently, there are two learning houses that accommodate daily tutorial sessions, a library and painting and music classes.
Each Friday, a member of the community allows SA Prumpung to also use their house due to limited amount of room for all the children.
