Kechara Indonesia Challenge 2015 – Gunung Agung, Bali

Tantangan Kechara Indonesia 2015 – Gunung Agung, Bali 1

Kechara Indonesia volunteers plan to climb Mt. Agung in Bali on 15-17 August 2015 to show their commitment to our charity work and to fundraise for Kechara Indonesia administrative and operation cost.

The tradition of doing fundraising challenges is not something new to Kechara Indonesia. In year 2012, after two years of doing our charity work on personal basis, a group of us decided to formalize our activities into a non-profit institution that we know today as Yayasan Kechara Indonesia. Thus, in order to formalize this, Valentina Suhendra, took a loan from Kechara Board of Director (BOD) in Malaysia, in the amount of IDR 70 million, to meet the minimum regulatory requirement of bank balance of IDR 100 million to form a Yayasan and because of this, we were able to sign our Yayasan deed on 15 June 2012.

Guess what we were doing on Rinjani mountain

Dear friends around the world,

Did you know I have a good friend and student Ms. Valentina who has worked through innumerable challenges to establish Kechara Soup Kitchen ( Yayasan Kechara Indonesia) in Jakarta, Indonesia?! Please read here of her and wonderful friends’ accomplishments for the sake of the needy. I must say I am very proud of Valentina and I find her to be a very kind, giving, generous and honorable person. She does what she promises and takes NOTHING for herself. Nothing at all. She is a very responsible person and a good leader because she leads by her integrity. I asked her for this write up about the brave and compassionate climbers. I thank the climbers for their great efforts and I am glad you are all safely home. You are all really caring people with others in mind.

Yayasan Kechara Indonesia (Kechara Indonesia Foundation) was established on 15 June 2012 in the presence of a Notary Public in Jakarta. It was then officially registered on October 17, 2012 by the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, Indonesia. Continue reading…
