Sokola Kaki Gunung

2015 - 2020

The high rate of illiteracy in Jember Regency encourages Sokola to establish a literacy program. Sokola conducted a field study in 2015 in Sumbercandik, part of Panduman Village which is located at the foot of Mount Argopuro, then and started a literacy program in 2016. People in Sumbercandik are from Madura whose ancestor migrated during the Dutch era to work on plantations there. The poor road conditions make it difficult for children to go to the elementary school which is about 5 km below their village. The program, was attended by children and adults. Sokola also assistsed coffee farmers to organize themselves to engage in fair trade and increase their income.
