Truly amazing to see how many lives are changing- Watch the video below to see the very first patient we documented.
This is the newsletter that was distributed to students who were interested in applying for the project. In case you did not receive this news from your head representatives, we have attached the necessary information below.
"I would first like to thank you for showing interest in the Indonesia Unfolded international collaboration project. Thanks to young people like you we can make our hopes and ambitions for the project possible.
We have decided to focus on expanding the Indonesian market through sustainable practices. As we heard in the RSIC 2017, conserving our planet and the species who share it with us is one of the most consequential challenges we face. So, we wish to create an iOS app to not only sell Indonesian produce but to educate people on climate change and how they can help combat it.
As you can see the poster (attached), all we need from you is a written application no longer than 250 words, telling us why you believe you will be an asset to the team. This should be complete and sent to both email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org by November 25th 2017."
Looking forward to hearing from you!

This year we were pleased to have been awarded the Kurt Hahn Prize for for our community initiative “Indonesia Unfolded”. This is a significant milestone to our organisation as it has only been 8 months since our launching date.
The Kurt Hahn Prize is awarded in recognition of an exceptional act of service to others, immediate or long term, either within or without the school community. The aim is to acknowledge individual student achievement whilst furthering a lasting spirit of unity among all Round Square schools.
