Sponsoring Teachers


At YACAN Children's Home the kindergarten and elementary school-age children are home-schooled. YACAN have purpose built classrooms on site for this purpose. Staff members and university-aged students teach to a good standard. The school at YASAH oversees YACAN home-schooling; when the children are in Junior and Senior High School they travel daily to the YASAH school, known locally as Anastasia School.

More funding is needed for YACAN staff; Contact Us to tell us if you would like to sponsor the staff at this wonderful Children's Home.


By sponsoring teachers at YASAH Children's Home School (any monthly amount), you will be helping to give approximately 200 children a good education. YASAH's government registered school, which specialises in teaching English in all subject areas, educating children from Kindergarten to Senior High School (ages 3 to 18). BEATS, who began supporting YASAH in 2012, pays the salaries of the High School teachers by finding sponsors. BEATS is very grateful for all those who sponsor teachers, especially since the Indonesian government raised the minimum wage for teachers by 125% early in 2020.

YASAH children's home, on the outskirts of Medan, Indonesia, has 120 children, and has it's own school (known locally as Anastasia School). BEATS are sponsoring qualified Christian teachers so that all the children get a good education.Sponsor a teacher (any monthly amount) in order to help many children. Contact Us

YASAH School is aiming to be a specialist English school, with all children hopefully leaving with a good grasp of the English language. The teachers have all been asked to include English teaching in their lessons, especially the key words relating to their subject.

Most teachers are very keen to practise and improve their own English as well as that of their students and are extremely grateful for the sponsorship, support and encouragement from BEATS.

Education is seen as a fundamental building block to give all the children the opportunity for a good start in life. Most of them come from poor families who cannot afford to educate their children, for example a number of the children at YASAH come from Nias Island where many people work on the rubber plantations; the average wage is around £4 per week.

In providing good quality education YASAH is offering the chance to children to improve not only themselves, but also the situation of their families.

Here are some photos of the Kindergarten and Year 1 children enjoying resources provided by BEATS.

Note: BEATS will always strive to ensure that donations are used as requested, but reserve the right to allocate them elsewhere should circumstances dictate.
