The SurfAid International Billabong Schools Program will provide a dynamic learning opportunity for students, educating them about the geography, economy, culture, health and living conditions of the 70,000 people of the Mentawai Island region, off the coast of West Sumatra, Indonesia. The isolated location is one of the world's most desired, tropical surfing destinations, but in the worst villages there are some of the highest child mortality rates in the world. It is also one of the most-at-risk areas globally for a large magnitude earthquake and tsunami.
