Sokola Pesisir

Sokola Coastal School for slum areas in Mariso district began in January 2005. Almost 80% of the population was illiterate, even though the district is in the famous beach of Losari area, only a short distance by car (short distance nya unclear, mending diganti aja dengan mis 1atau 2 km) from the heart of Makassar, capital of the province of South Sulawesi. Besides literacy programs, Sokola Coastal School also provides a life skills program which includes classes in handicrafts, computer skills and a playgroup certified by the National Education Ministry. Currently, all of the programs are in the transition process of running only by the local youth in which they have just established an organization named Sokola Pesisir. Sokola assists the youth to maintain the sustainability of the programs
