A fresh start to 2019!

I am so happy to be able to back on class again!
I am so happy to be able to back on class again!

After taking two semesters off, I’m happy to inform you that I have started to attend classes again in February. I am now taking 3 classes this semester, which are Business Risk Management, Computerized Accounting System and Internship. These subjects must be taken in different campuses because the lecturers teach in different campuses.

Regarding my internship, I will be doing 120 hours and I will do it at Yayasan Usaha Mulia’s Jakarta office. I will work on the accounting financial report. It has been my work since 2008, but during my Internship, I will do it with more details and more efficiently because I will apply the knowledge that I have been learning during my study. At the end of the internship, I have to make a report and present it in front of my lecturers. My grade will depend on the report and the result from the presentation.

In the meantime, I am still doing routine physiotherapy sessions twice a month. My condition is getting better; therefore my therapy schedule is not as often as it used to be.

Through this brief letter, I would like to say thank you for your kind support and patience not only for my study but also for my health. Thank you to all my GlobalGiving generous donors.

Satria and Yovanca's stories in the library

SATRIA

“My name is Satria, I am in the 6th grade. I have known YUM since I was in Kindergarten but I only started to become an active member of the Community Library since I was in 5th grade. YUM’s library is very different from the other library in any school and area here. In this library, we can play with various educational and creative toys. But before we start any activity, we have to read any book for 10 minutes. I love to read Science books, meanwhile my favorite activities are drawing, coloring and milk distribution.  At the end of this semester, I will face the National Final Exams that all 6th graders in Indonesia have to do so that we can continue our studies to the Secondary school. I will be in the library more often to study and read more to prepare for the examination. Thanks YUM!”

YOVANCA

“I am Yovanca and now in 6th grade. My mother drives me to the Library by motorcycle because the distance from my house to the library is quite far. I like to participate in every library activities, such as English Club, Computer  Club, Dance Club and many others. I love reading fairy tale stories and kids magazines. I wish by reading more, I can become smarter.”

YUM’s community library in Kalimantan has been the second home for many children in Bukit Batu, Palangkaraya.  Therefore it is essential for us to keep the reading materials updated, create educational and creative activities and facilitate these activities with qualified tutors.  Through your generous support through GlobalGiving, more and more children like Satria and Yovanca will benefit the library. Thank you!

Asia Philanthropy Circle Organises Visit to YUM's

Visit from APC
Visit from APC

At the end of 2018, a group of like-minded NGO workers visited YUM’s projects in Cipanas, West Java. The study tour was organised by the Asia Philanthropy Circle (APC), a platform created for Asian philanthropists. The aim was to show these fellow practitioners a project that integrates education, health and community development activities based on the community’s actual needs. The activity started with an introduction session on YUM’s overall project activities by YUM’s Executive Director, Vanessa Reksodipoetro. The session then continued with the explanation about the day-to-day operations of the various projects by YUM’s Cipanas Project Manager, Samsul Maarif.

Two of YUM’s education projects that were presented were the Community Library and the Preschool. When the participants visited the community library, which is integrated with the preschool, the students welcomed them with Manuk Dadali dance and Garuda Pancasila song. Afterward, the participants had an interactive Q & A session with the librarian and preschool teachers.

A few months earlier, YUM’s preschool teachers also had an opportunity to do a one-week observation at SuryaKasih Preschool, which is run by one of APC’s members, Reachout Foundation. Our teachers learned many new things that could help them to increase and develop their teaching ability.

YUM values these types of partnerships with other organizations that have the same purpose to increase the quality of life of disadvantaged people. By learning from each other about each one’s best practices, we believe it will help us to improve our projects in the future.
