School Partnerships Strengthen Trash picker Communities – Continue
XSProject and its connection with International Schools continue since the beginning of this year.
Some of the activities including donation of food, clothes and emergency supply to the 41 families of the children that are under XSProject Scholarship due to the heavy floods all over Jakarta in the this year rainy season. The school has also donated 2 new water tanks for 2 groups of trash pickers in the community of about 30 families and the coming project is from the school rugby team to build another bathroom and toilet. Last year the Boy Scout built the bathroom and the toilet in one of the group in the community and it was a success,
Last month, the school organizes a health screening for about 120 children and their parents. The event was very successful that the school has decided to have a follow up health screening in the next 3 months
The school second semester started with new school supplies and new set of books for the children delivered at the beginning of the year. 5 children in grade 6 are preparing for their exams and going to the middle school following 4 other children who are already in their first year of middle school. The middle school children are doing very well. Having more children going to the Middle School is one of the biggest accomplishments for XSProject this year as we are continue the commitment to make sure that the children have the opportunity to be in school until they graduated from Vocational School.
A group of volunteer have been spending their morning – twice a week with the smaller children and their moms, playing and introducing alphabets and numbers to prepare them for their first school year. A significant impact is shown by the enthusiasm of the moms, the important of education for their children.
Thank you to all donors for the generous donations. As more children going to higher level, the cost will be double. XSProject will not be able to change the life of those who lives in the trash picker’s community but putting the children through school until they are able to find better job and better future might change their life.
