It has been awhile since our last update of our services to the local communities. For the last few months we have been providing a helping hand to one local kindergarten by supporting the kids to obtain their uniform and providing school supplies. The children continue to enjoy learning, not only academically but also in area of character education.
The condition of Covid-19 at the Indonesian villages is very bad now. So for every pack of coffee purchased, we will give $2 for the purchasing of Vitamin C for the elderly and children per family. This will be the best that we can do to build their immunity and at the very least, prevent the spread of the virus. We must and will educate them on mask wearing and limit close socialising. We will support the distribution of the Vitamin C; 1000mg for the elderly and 500mg for the children, until end of the year.
It is such a joy to watch the young kids learn and get creative. Kudos to the teachers who share their passion and love for them.
Pak Ridwan is a teacher and he also has a small mini mart at his home, run by his wife Ella. They have 2 girls (Della - 10 years old, Belva - 5 years old) and 1 boy (Gevariel - 1 year old). In his spare time, he and his trusty old sewing machine will churn out wonderful mattress covers, blankets, tote bags and pouches using Indonesian batik. As he designed and handmade himself, all his work is unique. This extra income helps him to support his family and also to help the people in his community.
As the opportunities for the children in remote villages to learn to read and write were quite low, teachers are needed to be there to guide them properly. We will continue to support these teachers.
