Sebadak Village is the location of the KIAT Guru pilot program located in Kecamatan Ketungau Hulu, Sintang District, West Kalimantan Province. The village is about 9.5 hours from the city of Sintang regency, with the condition of the road is damaged and muddy and can only be passed by double-gardan car with minimum rent Rp. 1.5 million. There are about 290 heads of families scattered in three hamlets, namely Ensamboy Hamlet, Sejinggau Hamlet, and Sebangkong Hamlet whose position is separated from the other two hamlets as it is across the Ketungau River.

All children in Sebadak Village attend SDN 05 Sebadak, which is located in Sejinggau Hamlet. SDN 05 Sebadak has 7 teaching staff consisting of 2 state teachers and 5 honorary teachers. The KIAT Guru Program aims to improve the quality of basic education services in remote areas by involving the community in ensuring the presence and quality of teacher services in 200 pilot schools in 3 districts in West Kalimantan province and two districts in East Nusa Tenggara province. Through the socialization of the teachers' teaching goals to schools and communities, teachers and parents are increasingly aware that many improvements are needed in SDN 05 Sebadak.
