Sokola Rimba

About Us

Established in 2003 by Butet Manurung and four fellow educators, SOKOLA provides educational opportunities for indigenous peoples of Indonesia. SOKOLA uses a practical reading-writing-counting method developed during Butet’s years living among the Orang Rimba in the jungles of Jambi. It enables a student to begin reading within two weeks. SOKOLA develops a curriculum and teaching methodology to suit the local challenges a community may face. Our goal is to integrate education into the fabric of a particular community, according to their local customs that fits into their daily lives. The mission of this non-profit organization is to prepare marginalized communities to deal with the challenges of the ever-encroaching modern world.

As of today, SOKOLA has reached a dozen communities across Indonesia, bringing literacy to more than 10000 individuals, both children and adults. These efforts have been made possible by the support of volunteers from throughout Indonesia.

Besides running educational program, SOKOLA also worked as an external consultant for the project of national and international organizations such as the World Vision, Plan International and Save the Children in Indonesia, as well as Indigenous Education Foundation in Australia.
