The Foundation needs a base from which to educate the children in each community. Each coastal village
in Bintan and the surrounding islands donates a centrally-located community building for our use as a Learning Centre. Each Centre is assigned one permanent Island Foundation teacher to engage with the
local community to attract children to the classes, to communicate the Foundation’s vision and mission,
and to deliver the Foundation’s curriculum. The teachers are supported by a Programme Manager and
an Operations Manager, along with the Executive Director, who oversees the Foundation’s operations.
