In 2007, the founders saw an alarming problem among local youth: poor English test scores upon completion of middle school, a lack of basic computer skills and a general lack of self-confidence. As a consequence, these teens have been unable to gain admittance into good high schools, and have had limited success with tourism industry jobs.

The economy in Bali is dominated by tourism. In the future, most of the children in surrounding area   will seek work in the tourism industry, where English and Computer are required.

Prior to establishing SLC, there was no free English class for underprivileged children in the area. SLC supports the children to prepare them to develop their English, computer and communication skill.  Moreover developing their character-building through self-confidence, local wisdom (culture), environment, compassion, integrity, and entrepreneurship is also very important for the children to be success in life.
