I am Changed by Happy Hearts
Happy Hearts Indonesia hosted a golf tournament to rebuild two schools in Malaka, East Nusa Tenggara as part of a five-year programme.
A golf tournament entitled #IAMCHANGE Golf Tournament was held Damai Indah Golf – PIK Jakarta on September 14. Hosted by Happy Hearts Indonesia (HHI), a non-profit organization dedicated to rebuilding sustainable and eco-friendly schools in underprivileged areas of Indonesia, the event was held in aid of charity.
The charity golf tournament forms part of the #IAMCHANGE campaign, a five-year programme targeted to rebuild 200 schools in Nusa Tenggara Timur by 2023. The tournament is specifically raising funds to rebuild PAUD (Early Childhood Education) Santa Helena and PAUD Buah Hati, located in Malaka, Timor Barat. PAUD Santa Helena conducts its day to day learning activities in a room with two tables and four chairs. The school lacks good ventilation, lighting and other basic facilities. Meanwhile, PAUD Buah Hati uses a temporary shelter in an area that is prone to frequent flooding for its daily learning activities. For each school, HHI plans to rebuild two classrooms, a toilet with clean water, provide furniture, books, educational toys, and build an outdoor playground that will all benefit a total of 88 students.
In addition to having a chance to win hole-in-one prizes, including rebuilding one school on behalf of the winner sponsored by Time International (worth IDR 400.000.000), a Mazda CX-3 Touring, and Mazda2, all participants had the opportunity to compete against Indonesia’s best professional, Danny Masrin, on a Beat The Pro challenge.
