Children move pieces of timber to the new site of the Kartini Emergency School. In September 2007 city authorities evicted the school from its location under a Norht Jakarta highway. Undaunted, students and the 'Twin Teachers' moved the school piece by piece to its new temporary home. Since the early 1990s, twin sisters Sri Rosyati (known as Rossy) and Sri Irianingsih (known as Rian) have used their family inheritance to set up and run 64 schools in different parts of Indonesia, providing primary education combined with practical skills to some of the country's most deprived children.
