The Bukit Lawang Trust works with the local community of Bukit Lawang to improve the quality of life and education in the area, and to protect the Leuser Ecosystem, which is the last place on Earth to find Tigers, Elephants, Rhinos and Orangutans living together in the wild. The people of Bukit Lawang and the surrounding area are at the heart of everything we do. Whilst the trust is internationally funded, it is truly locally driven. The trust offers three programmes; an Education Programme, a Conservation Programme, and an Eco-Farming Programme. All the programmes run by the trust work to reduce poverty in and around Bukit Lawang, and in doing so enable local people to thrive in a more sustainable lifestyle.
