We are a professionally managed, voluntary organization governed by a Board of Trustees on a pro-bono basis and have the support of numerous professional volunteers.
“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire”

Our Scholarship Progamme offers scholarships for students from some of Indonesia’s poorest rural communities. It covers the full three-years of Senior High School, SMA (Public Senior High School) or SMK (Vocational School). The University Scholarship Programme that covers the first year of university education for those who are bright enough to have won places at university but cannot afford to attend.
Crucial to the success of any drive to improve Indonesia’s education system is the quality of its teachers. In 2007 Titian conducted a teacher training programme entitled ‘Excellence in Teaching and Learning’. In 2010, in partnership with ROTA, Vodafone, and the Ministry of National Education, we developed the Teacher Quality Improvement (TQ) programme for elementary and junior high schools’ teachers in Yogyakarta and Klaten.
Titian has set up Community Learning Centres (CLCs) to serve as a focal point for their communities to enhance their knowledge and skills and to broaden their horizons – no matter what their age. CLCs are also a place where members of the community can share their knowledge and skills. This is particularly important because it prevents Indonesia’s traditional skills from being lost.
Located in our Community Learning Centre in Bayat, Central Java, Rumah Titian serves as a gallery to display the work of Bayat artisan. Batik and ceramics designed and produced by Titian Foundation students and villagers in Bayat, central Java, are complemented by products from other NGOs focused on preserving the arts and crafts of Indonesia and encouraging community enterprise. All profits are donated to the Titian Foundation.
