YPAB Boys and Girls Dormitory
YPAB (The Foundation of Education for Blind Children) has 2 houses (dorms), girls dorm and boys dorm. There are 27 children living in the dormitory. The most urgent problem they have is their girls dormitory always flooded during heavy rains. This is because the land around the dorm as well as the road are higher than the dorm. The worst condition which ever happened was water got into the rooms up to a height of 30 cm. This condition of course is very difficult and also dangerous for blind children who live in this dorm.

YPAB also support their education
YPAB (The Foundation of Education for Blind Children) organizes formal education as follows:
  • Kindergarten (TKLB)
  • Primary School (SDLB)
  • Junior High School (SMPLB).

Because not all students come from Surabaya then inevitably YPAB (The Foundation of Education for Blind Children) has to provide housing for children who come from outside of Surabaya.
