Cemetery Sweets

Dear friends and partners,

As you know, our Community Development project has focused on an impoverished community scratching together a living amid one of Indonesia's largest cemeteries. We have helped them created new job opportunities, allowed the children to attend school, created community centers nearby to serve their needs and offer classes for new life skills. It has been an amazing process to share with these families that we have fallen in love with. 

And things just keep getting sweeter! Thanks to your continued support they have been able to offer two fun new developments: a line of gourmet baked goods and desserts in Yellow Flower Collection (the retail line started by a coalition of the women in the community), and a performing arts program at our Community Center that the kids absolutely love!

Thank you for continuing to serve this beautiful community with us!
