The conditions in which many of the 27,000 students living in Islamic boarding schools (pesantren) around Indonesia are considered unacceptable. Because of this, the government plans to build some 200 blocks of low-cost rental apartments for pesantren students, particularly in Java, at a cost of Rp 350 billion. According to Public Housing Minister Djan Faridz, the construction of the apartments is urgent so that pesantren students can be provided with habitable accommodation.
