Inspired by Science

BOKS was inspired by the book Spark, which found:

Exercise is… “Miracle-Grow for the Brain”


Aerobic activity shaped 19,000 students from Naperville, Illinois making them the fittest and some of the smartest in the Nation.

“Exercise is the single most powerful tool that we have to optimize the function of our brains.”


- John J. Ratey, MD

BOKS Indonesia
Programs such as BOKS that help children not only develop healthy habits to promote optimal growth trajectories but also promote social and emotional skills that can help them better handle stress, peer interactions, and negative feelings are just what children need and should be broadly scaled. The program’s being school-based and run by volunteers gives it the potential of affecting a large number of children equitably without the need for substantial resources.
