Vision and motivation
Challenges and goals
Surabaya faces various challenges related to poverty, with more than 150,000 people in the city living below the poverty line. To achieve the goals, the city needs to improve the quality of human resources, promoting the citizen development, gender development, the environmental and, in generally, the living standard of the community
Plan and implementation
To further boost the city’s economy and promote lifelong learning, the Mayor of Surabaya has established several initiatives, including developing a stronger workforce to sustain the economy, and strengthening local cultural values within communities. An example of these initiatives is Kampung Pendidikan Kampunge Arek Surabaya (KP- KAS), an urban village with residents who have keen interest and awareness to grant children with comprehensive education so that they can gain knowledge and improve themselves in terms of spiritual, intellectual, social-emotional, and physical growth through an educative, safe, sound, comfortable, healthy, creative, and literate environment.
