BANDUNG-Education is one of our rights as human beings, especially children to get a decent education where they are entitled to get quality education and free of charge.
To create a decent education and ensure that Indonesian children enjoy the right to quality education and free of charge, some elements of society form the Smart Indonesian Movement (GIP).
Chairman of the Indonesian Smart Movement, Yanti Sriyulianti said the movement was formed in order to realize the movement of Child Friendly School (SRA) by campaigning learning outside the classroom.
"Initially for our school children we will activate the SRA movement with simultaneous learning campaigns outside the classroom throughout Asia Pacific especially Bandung City on September 7, 2017," said Yanti, at the Anugrah Gerakan Indonesia Pintar event at Salman ITB Hall on Saturday (29/07) .
Yanti added that his side will also invite youths in the mosque to engage in this movement, whose goal is to make children who are not in school or drop out of school to open the Historical Literation Community (Kolase) Nation Community.
"We started by inviting high school / vocational / MA students to find and recognize their non-school friends at the age of 16-21, then invite them to engage in mosques specifically Muslim by starting to trace the history of the mosque," she said.
A number of institutions that support the birth of the Indonesian Smart Movement 2017 include Perkumpulan Keluarga Perduli Pendidikan (Kerlip), Smart Indonesian Satgas, Poverty Eradication Generation (Gentaskin), Small Child Free School (SEKAM), Children's Education Park, Raka Pare, YPM Salman ITB, GAMAIS ITB, Gamais Alumni Association, Manage our Book (Kebukit), Al-Qur'an Education Coordinating Board and Indonesian Sakinah Family (BK-PAKSI), and Multimihak.
