Overview & Purpose of RLC 
Roshan Learning Center (RLC) is a program of Yayasan Internasional Cahaya Fajar (YICF), a non-profit dedicated to improving the lives of vulnerable peoples in Indonesia. Our vision is to open doors in the future for asylum-seekers and refugees by doing a few simple things in the present:
  • To provide learning experiences for children from preschool through secondary school in English, math, and more. 
  • To empower adults to make decisions and take control of their lives.
  • To build a sense of community in which all members respect, value, and encourage each other.
We offer an excellent opportunity to serve a population in great need, become part of a dynamic international community, and experiment with progressive approaches to teaching and learning. We will primarily use Cambridge University and Google app resources. Class sizes are small, ranging from 1-15 students, with 8 students being an average size.
