A Perfect Foundation is a non-profit humanitarian organization providing free educational programs in English, Surfing and Environmental Awareness for local communities in remote areas including the Mentawai Islands..
The locals are some of the poorest and most disadvantaged in Indonesia, with 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.
At the Education Centre we see the aim as a collaboration of all community partners, other non-profit orgnaisations, foreign visitors and volunteers working in conjunction with the local community to help be the decision makers for their islands and future.
