Leading hospitality brand, Marriott International Indonesia, continues its commitment to community empowerment through a launch of a transformative educational initiative in Songan Village, collaborating with Bali Children’s Foundation – an education-focused non-profit organisation.

Through Marriott Business Council Bali and Bali Children Foundation (BCF), Marriott International Indonesia has introduced advanced Education Technology (EdTech) solutions into four schools in Songan Village. The goal is to facilitate personalised learning experiences for elementary students in this remote area.

On the 12th and 14th December 2023, the EdTech Project team visited Sekolah Dasar Negeri 2, 5, 6, and 8 in Songan Village for assessments and to celebrate this significant milestone. Additionally, Marriott International’s Bali hotels also organised fun games, quizzes, educational sessions and school lunches for the students.

The collaboration between Marriott Business Council Bali and BCF began in 2017, initially focusing on refurbishing schools in Songan Village, supported by Marriott International’s ‘Run to Give’ charity fund. The collaboration also includes providing scholarship awards to BCF’s students, benefiting over 3,000 students in less accessible areas.

This year, the EdTech Project was launched to improve literacy and numeracy skills for early elementary students. Using interactive applications like ‘Belajar Membaca,’ ‘Belajar Menghitung,’ ‘1st 2nd Maths’ and ‘Sekolah Enuma’, the initiative has successfully boosted 93% of pupils to now having basic competency skills.
