raised of £2,240 target by 62 supporters

Weʼre raising £2,240 to Help us to raise funds to help keep the Bukit Lawang Trust and its programs running untill the COVID 19 Pandemic passes.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Over the past few months, the COVID 19 Pandemic has had a devastating affect on the charitable sector across the globe. Many charities have been forced to close, or significantly reduce their operations as a direct result. Unfortunately the Bukit Lawang Trust is no exception to this.

The Bukit Lawang Trust is a Not-For-Profit Community Education Center in Bukit Lawang, North Sumatra. It provides free education to over 250 students from 7 different rural communities across North Sumatra. In addition, it runs free business skills training. Five free fitness classes a week in activities such as Aerobics, Kickboxing, Yoga and a Running club. The trust also delivers a conservation program, an ecological farming program and many supporting projects including a womans group designed to give local women a safe environment to speak and discuss taboo subjects and receive training and education around topics such as gender equality, consent, sexual education, feminine hygiene and FGM. And a Jungle food program which during the COVID 19 pandemic has delivered essential food parcels to over 200 needy families in North Sumatra.

All of this is provided for FREE to the local community.


Throughout the month of August the Bukit Lawang Trust team will be running a total of 224 km to raise awareness and funds for the Trust.

In addition the trusts Manager and Head of Conservation Sam Oakes will be attempting to run 144km within 24 hours.. following the ancient hadrians wall from coast to coast.
