Dear Sir or Madam With this letter we are happy to introduce our association to you. ‘Bona Ni Pasogit’ is a cultural association like its Batak name and logo shows. The name Batak needs a short explanation.

The Batak, a collective noun for six tribes, are considered as the first and oldest peoples of Indonesia. The mainly Christian, Batak live in the highlands of the northern province of the island Sumatra, (also called Bataklands) with at its heart, the mystic Lake Toba (Danau Toba).

Like many other Indonesian peoples, many Batak also live in Europe. ‘Bona Ni Pasogit’ was founded to replace the feeling of being far away from home, by a general sense of being






home. In the Netherlands ‘Bona Ni Pasogit’ regularly organises cultural events. Funds are raised during these events called “Danau Toba Night”. So far already two of these events have taken place, the first in Utrecht in 1999, the second in Amsterdam in 2002. Both “Danau Toba Nights” were attended by hundreds of people from the Netherlands and foreign countries.

With the proceeds from these events we support a number of charities in North Sumatra, which are selected by our organisation.

Further on there is a summary with photos, of projects which were funded with the proceeds of the last “Danau Toba Night”. For further information you can access our website:



Working method of our association

Very important to us (and you) is that our contacts with Sumatra are direct. Our own representative manages the projects, at the actual site. Local+ly, necessary materials and labour are personally acquired. As a result not only aid but employment also, is provided. And very effectively: 95(!) EUROCENTS of every EURO raised are spent directly, locally.









“Alpha Omega” an institute for the mentally and physically disabled at Kabanjahe.

A part of the proceeds of the “Danau Toba Night” is intended to finance the shipping of these goods.
