Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2003
This description of Lendo Novo's work was prepared when Lendo Novo was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2003.
Lendo has created alternative, community-supported education innovative in both its approach to the learning process as well as the governance of the schools. Through the Nature Schools in which children are actively engaged in scientific inquiry to learn about their environments, Lendo is demonstrating that high quality education can be made available without expensive infrastructures, and that these alternative practices can influence Indonesian education on a broad scale.
