Sokola Rimba

Literacy was initiated in 1999 for the Orang Rimba, a nomadic tribe who live in the rainforests of Jambi, Sumatra. From 2004, SOKOLA developed an alternative education program which includes self advocacy, in order to meet the challenges of deforestation and outside encroachment. As in most of SOKOLA’s programs, the school building also serves as a community centre.
