Project Highlights

Whilst our earliest programs started with food distribution and student sponsorships, we have since taken up new projects in line with our vision and mission.

Based on our field observations, we identified a number of needs crucial to bring about better lives for those we seek to help. Chief among these are the needs to facilitate more effective learning processes and employment opportunities, which can make a world of difference. For instance, people with eyesight difficulties can scarcely realize their true potential in education or employment; without the proper clothes, someone might face prejudices when applying for a job. These are the needful things for people to get by.

Prompted by these, we embarked on new projects such as providing free eye tests and ocular glasses, renovations of public parks and kindergartens, stationery distribution, school uniform distribution, secondhand clothes distribution and others.

We also hold various fundraising events such as, sponsored marathons and a number of mountain hikes on Mt. Peclet in France, Mt Semeru in East Java, Mt Rinjani in Lombok and Mt Agung in Bali, flea markets, etc. Our fundraisers are organized periodically to sustain our charity programs to better effect.
