Madrasah (Arabic language) simply means the same as school does in English language.  Madrasah Ibtidaiyah/MI (elementary school), Madrasah Tsanawiyah/MTs (Junior High) and Madrasah Aliyah/MA (Senior High). Madrasah have played a major role in Indonesia. They emphasize cores values of sincerity, simplicity, individual autonomy, solidarity and self control. Most madrasah provide low cost education for Indonesian citizens, as most students come from low to medium economic family background. The students attend formal school like any other students outside of madrasah and they learn general subjects (science, sport, English, social etc). In the madrasah the students also emphasize more in Koran and Islam. The madrasah has different possible components such as traditional religious education, vocational skills training and character development. The project sites will be in MI (Elementary school), MTs (Junior High) and MA (Senior High) which are located mostly in rural areas in Central and East Java.
