We have been so delighted to have had some wonderful volunteers come join us in June this year. After an incredibly challenging 3 years with the arrival of Covid-19, it has truly been a blessing to feel the warmth and support of new volunteers coming to Bright Course Foundation once again. Volunteers came from far away lands to help us get back on our feet and soon, we will be stronger than ever as a result of the tireless work they did. From supporting our students with facilitating their regular English classes, to helping us improve our growing vegetable garden, to establishing fundraisers to aid us in our monumental task of finishing building our language and hospitality training facility. We began construction of said facility in late 2017, and as a result of Covid, construction has stalled for quite some time.
And there is more good news! The homestay bungalows we have on our property has been getting busier and busier this year as the months go on. We were so happy to welcome four customers in March. And, to add to that excitement, we already have two customers booked in to stay with us in August! This really motivates us to continue pushing through as the haze of Covid-19 is starting to clear, and we can begin to plan and look forward to all that is in our near future!
It goes without saying, we hope we will have the pleasure of welcoming many, many more volunteers to BC in the coming months and years. They bring us so much hope for the future and they inspire our students to soak up as much of their knowledge of the English language they can. It’s the spirit of the volunteers that enlightens us and our rural community here in central Lombok. We know they attract more students to come and study with us, which is one of our main priority’s at the end of the day. We want to see our local people getting a first-class education in English and hospitality, so they can secure jobs and provide for themselves and their families. We will continue to work tirelessly for this dream.
Thank you so much for reading this, and please reach out to us if you would like to get involved with our foundation. We look forward to hearing from you!
