Summary

I issue you a challenge! DO NOT READ THIS. ..........You failed. You failed because you can read, all day, everyday. We read and take in information without ever noticing it. Now imagine IF YOU COULD NOT READ. How hard would your life be without reading. How could you visit a new friend if you could not read the street name? To go on a bus without knowing the destination? Would you walk in and out of every shop until you found something inside that you recognized? Help to educate a child.

Challenge

Indonesia is now the world's sixteenth largest economy with a GDP of US$700 billion. However, according to World Bank data, there are still more than 103 million (43.3%) people living below the poverty line with an additional 38.5% whose income is between $2 and $4 dollar per day. This means that more than 81% of the population are poor or at the border of poverty. Indonesia has a young population, with more than half of its people under 29 years of age and many will never go to school.

Solution

Your kind donation will keep the doors open to our learning center based in Jakarta Indonesia. With your help, 350 children per year will be educated and ready to make their mark in life. We not only teach the basic studies required but teach the students soft skills vital to their employability. All our students take extracurricular vocational training in the forms of hair and beauty, motorcycle repair, machine sewing, electronics repair, hand phone repair, A/C repair, and computer repair.

Long-Term Impact

Our Motto is "Child by Child we build our World" and this will always remain to be true. Since YCAB Foundation has been growing and spreading its learning centers across Indonesia we have been able with the love and kindness of so many people to have educated over 35,600 youths so far. That's 35,600 youths who have been given the tools to reach their full potential. Please support us to carry on helping the people who need it most.
