Maria Peters School Grant

Since the end of 2019 Java Village has a new fund: the Maria Peters School Grant. The goal of this grant is, building on Java Village’s Sponsor a Student (SaS) project that only supports students at junior high school (SMP), to enable pupils from the village to continue their education by three final years of high school (SMA) or vocational education (SMK). Please look under projects on the website how you can support this grant.
The grant has been founded in commemoration of Maria Peters, who unexpectedly passed away in 2016, following complications from a pulmonary embolism. Many knew Maria as a committed internist with a generous heart for people in need, and also as a dear and dedicated Friend of Java Village. In honour of her, her family took the initiative, together with Java Village, to found this special grant for excellent students.
