Pondok Pesantren Pabelan Project Brief

This Pesantren is a rural co-educational boarding school, a traditional Islamic educational establishment, which trains young people to assist the villages in reversing their decline. To establish sound interactive relationships between itself and the surrounding villages, the institution offers, in addition to its general education and practical skills programme, agricultural and medical services as well as training in building construction. In the latter programme students and villagers are taught the use of local resources, materials and technologies, and the means to integrate traditional rural design elements with modern materials and systems.
