Dear Donors,

May this report finds you well and healthy.

We would like to thank you for your support to YKIP, especially during Giving Tuesday 2020. Your support really means a lot to us. 

This project is another project to support children from unprivileged families to continue their study in senior high school. You might know our funded project that supports 15 girls to continue their education. This project is quite similar, but we open more opportunities to not only girls but also boys who need assistance to continue their studies. 

In November, we distribute the donation to the students in our KEMBALI program. We visited all areas of the program despite the worry because of the corona pandemic. We following the health protocol, always wearing a face mask, keep the distance, and wash our hands frequently.

On November, we distribute the money to the children. Before the pandemic, the money was intended to cover the students' transportation and/or pocket money for the children, but since the pandemic began in March, the money is then reallocated to buy an internet package so they can still participate in distance learning from home. 

We also got some donations for our food package program. Just before Christmas, we distribute food packages for the students in all our programs (KEMBALI, VOCATIONAL, UNIVERSITY, and KIDS Program). The students and their families are happy to receive the food package for the new year. 

We are thankful for the support that we got, so the children are able to continue the study despite the pandemic condition. Thank you will never be enough to express how we are grateful to have a donor like you. 

We wish you a happy holiday and a smooth start to 2021. May God bless you with health and prosperity in the new year. 

Again, on behalf of our sponsored students, YKIP Boards, and staff, we thank you very much,

Dear Donors,

May this report finds you well, 

On December 13, YKIP held our first ever online Youth Career Planning Workshop YCPW or known as career day among our students. Career day is the annual event that we have with the 12th graders. The event's aim is to give as much information to the students about the opportunity available for them after they finishing their senior high school. We usually invite people from the industry, HR practitioners, and entrepreneurs to share their stories with the children and inspire them. 

 The event usually is a full-day event, but YCPW 2020 is a very special event. It is held during the pandemic where we cannot gather the student in the same place. Instead, we have them gathering online. The students are participating in using zoom and to our surprise, their enthusiasm was the same as the last year's event. We made the event to be a half-day event. We sent the students phone credits so they can buy an internet package to be used for the online meeting. For those who are in the area with a poor internet signal, we advised them to find a place where the signal is good. They can join from the place with a strict health protocol, supervised by the older students who are in college now. 

There are three speakers invited: one HR practitioner, one graduated student who starting her business, and one speaker from the government training center. The HR practitioner, Mr. Rhoy Kurniawan inform the students about how to make a good CV and preparing themself for a job interview. So many questions asked by participants, and they are satisfied with the answer given by Mr. Kurniawan.

Juliasih, one of YKIP sponsored students who worked in a hotel came to share her story of being an entrepreneur pioneering her own business with her husband. Because of the pandemic, the hotel where she worked is closed. To survive, she decided to sell meatballs. Not only she sells it in the stall, but she also promoted her business online. She shared tips on how to start a business, especially in the culinary area.

The third speaker, Mrs. Alit from the government training center shared the opportunity to get training in the government training center and what benefits the students get from this government-owned training center.  

The last part of the career day is the part when YKIP announced to the students the opportunity to be one of YKIP Vocational or University Program beneficiaries. We informed the students about the Vocational program and how they can apply for the program. 

To apply for the scholarship, the student needs to submit some documents such as their report card from the first semester to the fifth semester of senior high school, a recommendation from the school, and most important that the student needs to submit the motivation letter explaining why YKIP should give them the opportunity to get the one-year training under the vocational program. 

The students who are showing their interest in this opportunity has given us a lot of questions regarding the requirements, and we are happy to see their enthusiasm. They have started to prepare the documents and contacting their school for the recommendation. We hope that this process will be smooth They will need to submit their document by 31 January 2021. We will update you the selection process once we get to the next step. 

May you and your loved ones are healthy and well. Not forget to wish you a happy holiday. See you again in the next report. 

All the best,

YKIP Team

Dear Donors, 

First of all, YKIP would like to thank you for your kind donation so that our project to help 15 girls to finish their senior high school is funded. It is all because of your generosity that we can make the dreams of 15 girls to finish their education to grade 12 come true.

As the project funded is for 15 girls to finish their senior high school will take some time until all students in this project are finishing their high school, we will keep you updated on the progress of the project. We are also delighted to inform you that this year, one of the students that you are sponsored finished her high school in the middle of this year. Sari sends you a thank you for sponsoring her so that she finished her senior high school as below:

Hello, donors at GlobalGiving,

How are you? I hope everything is fine.

My family and I are in a good condition, we are healthy and fine, but we still have to stay at home due to the pandemic.

I would like to thank you for the generosity that you have supported my education in senior high school. Now I have graduated from vocational high school.

I plan to find a job after graduating. Finding a job is hard if you don’t have any experience. For me, I am grateful that I choose the vocational school that gives me the chance to have on the job training period. I got training in one of the villas in the Candidasa area and I got quite a lot of experience during my training. I also got a certificate in the training and it will be proof that I gained experience in the tourism industry. I believe by this chance it will be easier for me to get the job. However, due to the pandemic, the tourism sector is not operating as it used to be, but I hope that this will be over soon and everything will be back to normal.

Again, I would like to thank you for your support to me so that I can have the opportunity to study and get training in the tourism industry. It is really useful for me and my parents too. I hope that I can meet you in person someday. I hope your generosity can assist more students like me so that they can also finish school.

Sari

Donation Distribution  

We started the donation distribution of the new academic year 2020-2021 in the second week of September 2020. The donation that we distribute in this event as below:

  1. School supplies (books and stationery)
  2. Internet allowance (previously was the pocket money/transport allowance, but due to the pandemic and most students are studying online, we still distribute the allowance, but now is allocated to buy internet package)
  3. Admission fee for those who admitted in grade 10. 

As the distribution is held in the pandemic situation, the health and safety of everyone is the highest priority. We keep the contact minimum, have the students and family wear their mask during the event, and obliged everyone to wash their hands before entering the venue.  

YKIP also paid the monthly school fee for the first semester in the fourth week of August 2020, when YKIP field and admin staff visited each school where the sponsored students study. We hope that by distributing the school supplies and allowances we can help the children more during this uncertain time. 

YKIP would like to thank you for your generous donation to this project. We will keep you updated about the project's progress in the future. 

You can still support YKIP on GlobalGiving. Please donate to our other projects: Helping girls to get more skills and help 25 more students finishing their studies in senior high school.

May you and your loved ones always healthy and well,
