A Perfect Foundation is a for-social change organization providing free educational programs in English, Water Awareness and Environmental Practices empowering local communities in remote areas including the Mentawai Islands.

The locals have little provision of basic needs such as health services and education. Over the medium and long term, the people as well as the environment of this stunning area are facing massive challenges. The arrival of tourism to the islands offers a way out of the poverty cycle for locals and the opportunity to actively develop sustainable initiatives towards their future. Our programs offering English Learning and Environmental Awareness will provide them opportunities of employment in the growing tourism industry and educate them on the importance of recycling and reducing the use of plastics.

At the Education and Conservation Centre we see the aim as a collaboration of all community partners, other for-purpose organisations, foreign visitors and volunteers working in conjunction with the local community to create a sustainable future for their islands and their future.
