Education is a great enabler. It helps people escape poverty through improving incomes, employment and enterprise opportunities. The Government of Indonesia has a constitutional mandate to ensure basic education for all children, regardless of gender, location or family income. To deliver on this commitment the Indonesian government also works with religious organisations, the private sector and other development partners such as Australia (AusAID).
Starting in 2011 the Government of Indonesia, with the support of AusAID and other development partners, delivered a national training program to help schools and madrasahs make the best use of BOS and other school resources. The BOS training program will reach 650,000 school and madrasah principals, treasurers and committee members and help to develop their knowledge and skills in school management. New knowledge and skills will help them to perform their roles effectively and improve the quality of education across Indonesia.
This photo book is part of the evaluation of the BOS training program. It tells the stories of BOS and schools across Indonesia and presents information that cannot be expressed through figures and statistics.
