Inspiring youth to reach for their dreams

Last month, more than 50 high school students gathered in the main hall of YUM at Cipanas, West Java, to listen to inspiring stories shared by athletes from the ONE Championship family, Asia’s largest global sport media property. The event aimed at inspiring youth to pursue their dreams even when all odds are stacked against them. This event was sponsored by Silver Queen, a popular chocolate brand in Indonesia.

The event was directed to inspire and share with the youth that equal opportunities coupled with perseverance, can bring out the best in everyone, regardless of their circumstances and background. ONE Championship’s vision conforms harmoniously with similar work undertaken at YUM’s vocational training center in Cipanas, where, our project is not only aimed at preparing youth with necessary hard skills such as courses in English, computer and sewing, but also in imparting essential soft skills in order to have a better quality of life. Therefore ONE Championship athletes’ visit to YUM-VTC is a highly appreciative and welcome event. 

During the session, the athletes shared their personal experiences to inspire the students to pursue their dreams and overcome challenges in life. They encouraged them to dream big and to work hard to make it a reality. Staff at YUM further reinforced these efforts through smaller sessions with the youth, to motivate them to complete their secondary school and learn as many life skills as possible in order to find employment in the future with greater ease. 

YUM utilizes every opportunity to collaborate with any third party, which has the same vision and mission, in enhancing the quality of people's lives, through education, health and community development. We hope for more such opportunities for collaboration in the future.

Independence Day celebrations at YUM, Cipanas

Celebrating Indonesia’s Independence Day in August is one of the most highlighted and anticipated activities this year. Many competitions, both fun and educative for all, are held for two whole days during afterschool hours, at YUM’s site in Cipanas. They include drawing and coloring, marble race, dropping the pencil in the bottle, eating Keropoek, moving food using chopsticks and many such delightful activities.

Prior to announcing the winner and distribution of awards, children were given an opportunity to spontaneously showcase their talent on the spot and displayed outstanding confidence while they sang and danced in front of the crowd. The event finally ended with distribution of awards, which the children had been eagerly waiting for. There were 246 children that participated in this event and it was organized jointly by the staff of YUM and tutors from the Tutoring and Remedial Class project.

We also conducted competitions for the Pre-school students, which was held on a different day from that of senior students. The competition was designed to enhance their overall development and stimulate their motor skills, like putting on the school uniform, moving the balls with cups and water movement race. The students also learnt teamwork, as they had to be in various groups for certain competitions. All of them received small rewards as a token of recognition of their bravery and participation in the event.

Yayasan Usaha Mulia is ever so grateful for the generous cooperation extended by all the donors of GlobalGiving, without whose kind support, this event would not have been possible. Thank you!

Our new beautiful Community Library!

The renovation of our Community Library in Kalimantan is finally done! 

All of the furniture, books, materials and tools have now been put back in their places. What took more time was re-organizing the books according to each theme. The community library has more than 5,000 books, 200 magazines, 400 children’s movies and almost 100 different kinds of educational toys.

We set the Re-opening of YUM’s Library on the same date as our annual Creativity Day. “I have a dream” was the chosen theme for this Creativity Day event. We want to encourage the children to dare to dream big and pursue them bravely. We also want to emphasize the importance of completing their basic education.  Many children in Bukit Batu, Central Kalimantan do not have the opportunity to finish their education due to a lack of parental support, both financially and mentally. Early age marriages, the need to find a job to support their families and stunting issues are just a few of the problems that hold these kids back from finishing their education.

There were several creative and fun games and competitions held before the day of the reopening: coloring, drawing, storytelling, hula hoop and making a speech in English . The day of the reopening was marked by a ribbon cutting session by the representative of Linklaters, the generous donor who has given their full support toward the renovation. During the Creativity Day event, the children from the dance club performed “Karami Anak Luwu Ewu” and the children from the English club sang “I have a dream”, “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da” and “Laskar Pelangi”. Finally, came the children’s most favorite session: the announcement of the winners and the reward distribution. Around 400 children were at the event and they enjoyed every moment!

“On behalf of my school, I would like to thank YUM for inviting us to take part in this competition. All of our students are very happy with this event.  Our students won the 2nd prize in the coloring competition” Miss Fitriana, Tangkiling School principal.

“During YUM’s Creativity Day, I participated in the coloring competition but unfortunately I did not win. But I did win the second position for Hula Hoop competition. I came here with my friends from school. We enjoy all of the activities very much and cannot wait to visit the library after school. Thank you YUM and all of the donors for your kind support.” Riandra,  1st grade student.
