Many children drop out of school because their parents are unable to pay the monthly school fees, or the transport to school, or to buy the necessary schoolbooks and stationary. This is a concern because education is the way to get yourself out of poverty. It's a shame that Indonesian schools still ask for a monthly fee, payment for uniform and other expenses such as exam papers, etc. Because of this, so many parents have had to take their children out of school.
Yayasan Usaha Mulia (YUM) has a program that helps these children stay in school by finding them sponsors. Our working areas are: Jakarta, Cipanas and Central Kalimantan.
So how can you help? All you need to do is donate a yearly fee of:
Rp. 1,500,000 - to sponsor a student in Elementary School (SD)
Rp. 2,500,000 - to sponsor a child in Secondary School (SMP & SMA)
Rp. 7,500,000 - to sponsor a child living in Desa YUM Cipanas (living expenses, healthcare & school)
The photos above are children who are waiting for sponsors so they can go back to school :)
If you want to help, contact YUM Head Office to discuss what type of sponsorship you would like to help or donate via bank transfer to support our projects:
