Madrasah Quality Improvement Program

Commitment by

Sampoerna Foundation

In 2008, the Sampoerna Foundation committed to focus on the improvement of Islamic high schools in Indonesia through the Madrasah Quality Improvement Program (MQIP), building on work begun in a 2006 pilot program. Through MQUIP, the schools are to offer an internationalized curriculum conducted in English along with the existing religious curriculum, helping to prepare young Muslims for a university education. The Foundation committed to raise over $5 million from its private and public sector partners to support three model schools by the end of 2009.
As of June 2009, three regional governments and a number of private sector partners had agreed to support the schools. Additionally, the content and the teacher training program were in the process of being developed with the help of the National Institute of Education and the Principal's Academy in Singapore.
