North Lombok has faced an uphill battle since the district was severely affected by a 6.9 earthquake in early August 2018. In the spirit of finding local solutions to local issues in education, INOVASI began to rapidly work with local stakeholders to devise new strategies for improving educational quality in the after-math of the earthquake. This includes psycho-social counselling, partnering with a local organisation called ABKIN (Indonesian Guidance and Counselling Association). In addition, INOVASI led a rapid assessment of partner schools (school building data collection) and will continue to support the construction of Bamboo Schools, while damaged school buildings are repaired in the coming months. This re-designed pilot commenced in September 2018 and finished in July 2019.
