Working Hard Despite the Loud Trains
Sahabat Anak Tanah Abang began as a follow up to the 2006 Sahabat Anak Jamboree. It is located alongside the train tracks between Palmerah Station and Tanah Abang Station, near the Pejompongan water gate. Despite the condition and location of the study house the children are still eager to study there. Their smiles, laughter and greetings always fill the study house each afternoon. The learning activities are not only initiated by the volunteers but are also initiated by the high school and college students. Through this process we hope that the students are given a sense of responsibility to help create lessons and activities. We also hope that each student continues to grow in their consciousness about the importance of education so that they fight hard to achieve their dreams.
At the moment SA Tanah Abang has approximately 60 children and have had two classes of children graduate from high school. Two of those graduates are now at university.
