RI is following up its immediate emergency response by addressing the long-term needs of survivors of the Indonesian earthquake. We are working to rebuild schools, shelters and livelihoods.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
When the 6.2 magnitude earthquake struck the island of Java, more than 6,000 people were killed, 40,000 injured and 650,000 left homeless. RI deployed emergency relief teams to the region immediately after the quake to provide assistance to survivors, especially women and children. Now RI is working to restore education facilities, rebuild homes, and encourage economic stability for local businesses.
How will this project solve this problem?
RI is building 20 transitional schools in earthquake-affected regions. RI is also implementing a Shelter Emergency Loan Fund (SELF) to financially aid families in rebuilding their homes and home-based businesses.
Potential Long Term Impact
RI's transitional schools will allow students to pursue their education, providing continuity and hope during the rebuilding process. RI's shelter and business loans will provide the money families need to rebuild their homes, businesses and lives.
