Students who graduate in school year July 2011- June 2012

Introduction :

This month, eight students under our student sponsorship program graduated. This is a happy occassion for all of us. It is very heartwarming to see them complete their education and move on with their lives. We met them first in various unfortunate circumstances, but they sure have gone beyond few obstacles in their lives. I am very proud of them. I hope these students will grow to become individuals with integrity, kind-hearted, and successful in whatever they pursue.

Pesan Kesan Ferdi Yudiman

Ferdi Yudiman

I am Ferdi Yudiman from MANGGALA vocational school, Ciledug. My impression is this school tuition financial assistance really helps me. In addition to reducing my parents’ burden, I can continue my study at school. Because to me school is a window of life that can change my family’s lives and my own, however, since education in Indonesia is still relatively expensive, I really need this [assistance] and [I] would like to say thank you for this help.

I hope in the future there will be more [students] who obtain similar assistance. Since there are many children in Indonesia who have to quit school due to financial issues. In addition, I hope those who gave this help will be given easy fortune by God.

Ad Hoc Sponsorship Program

In the month of May – June 2011, YKI launched a program to provide ad hoc financial assistance for the selected students in need. We are happy that among these students who received our ad hoc assistance to help pay their amount overdue in their respective school, four of them have received pledged sponsorship until their graduation from vocational school.

The processes that we went through in relation to this program are as follows:

  • We obtained hints among our food packages recipients and other parties, such as teachers from SMKN19, about students who may need our assistance;
  • We interviewed the candidates and performed site visits to their homes;
  • Distributed the student data to our friends to check whether any of them are interested to sponsor these students
  • Upon raising adequate fund, we paid off the student candidates amount overdue at their respective school.
  • Provided the sponsor with the evidence of payment.

Setelah saya lulus sari SMK BPS&K, saya merasa sangat senang bisa lulus dan bersyukur banget bisa sekolah sampai tamat. Banyak di luar sana yang tidak sekolah karena biaya, maka dari itu saya banyak-banyak berterima-kasih.

Kepada Ibu Donatur yang selama ini membiayai sekolah saya hingga lulus, hari ini banyak pengalaman tentang arti peduli kepada orang lain yang saya dapat dari Ibu Valentina dan anak-anak asuh lainnya. Walaupun saya sering dimarahi setiap ketemu ibu, tetapi saya tahu setiap omelan dari ibu itu selalu berguna untuk saya dan saya akan menjadi anak yang mandiri tidak tergantung pada orang tua.
Terima kasih kepada ibu yang selalu menasehati saya, ibu adalah motivasi saya untuk menjadi orang yang sukses. Continue reading…
