Titian Community Learning Centres

July 27th, 2013


Titian Foundation’s six CLCs are always hives of activity, drawing interest from the communities that surround them, extending Titian’s reach into the communities from which our students are drawn.

The newly opened Paseban CLC has generated keen interest from the local community who enjoy to access the facilities and to take part in sewing, use of computers, graphic design and traditional dance and music. Titian has also inspired the villagers in Paseban to make plans to create an eco-tourism area. Visitors will have homestays available to them and be able to watch and take part in activities such as pottery, ceramics and batik making. Visitors will also have the opportunity to share their particular expertise to villagers.

CLC Gemawang achieved first prize in the writing competition for Central Java Province which means that the CLC will participate in national level competition that will be held in September this year.

CLC Cigalontang facilitated social works performed by students of Indonesia Teaching University (UPI) and Pajajaran University in the context of community development and education to make props and workshops about health issues.
