Bantul and Bali Kindergarten Project (MUM/HHF)
Subsequent to the 2004 Tsunami, Indonesia was later devastated by a massive earthquake in May 2006. The BKP project, in collaboration with the MUM Foundation, was designed to help rebuild affected communities in rural Indonesia.
HHF and BKP have constructed and implemented the administration of 36 kindergartens and one primary school, which contains a fully equipped HP computer lab, in the Bantul and Bali regions benefiting more than 2000 children. The intent is to offer affected children a well-rounded educational experience and proper developmental stimulation that will, in turn, improve their quality of life and strengthen their communities as a whole.
HHF and BKP are continuing to build new schools in different parts of Indonesia to bring education to the most in-need children and support the many displaced communities.
West Java Kindergarten project (MUM/HHF)
On September 2, 2009 West Java was hit by a devastating earthquake that killed at least 79 people, injured more than 1,250 and displaced over 210,000 people. The government estimates that 3,000 schools were destroyed or seriously damaged in the Tasikmalaya, Garut, Ciamis, Bandung and Cianjur districts. As soon as the earthquake hit, MUM traveled through the most affected region, Bandung, in order to assess how many kindergartens were destroyed and found more than 40 in great need of help. While the government invests in the rebuilding of primary and secondary schools, there is no support provided to kindergartens. The following earthquake that hit Sumatra on September 30, 2009 caused international media to shift focus toward that region, leaving West Java almost completely forgotten. With the incredible support of MUM, HHF decided to fill this “gap” and support the many children in desperate need for schools and education. Since November 2009, HHF has rebuilt 17 kindergartens benefiting over 1,500 children. Close
HHF offered funding to support mobile clinics in rural and greater Aceh, where many would otherwise have no access to healthcare. Three new clinics have replica watches replica watches replica watches rolex replica watches been constructed in Pidie, Aceh Javya, and Simuleuele, each designed to provide critical treatment to over 2,000 patients a week who suffer from traumatic conditions such as respiratory illness, hypertension, skin disease, rheumatism, severe headaches, and various ailments caused from malnutrition.
After the 2004 Tsunami, through its community outreach based on a pre-Tsunami history of helping orphans in Aceh, the Rahmania Foundation has identified the needs of 180 children left to fend for themselves after the disaster. HHF funding supported the expenses for 20 Tsunami orphans in Aceh, hosted at the Jodie O’Shea Orphanage, for resources like food, lodging, tuition, books, transportation, uniforms, and other educational costs and extra curricula activities.
Friends International and HHF have supported the development of a drop-in center for at-risk youth to give them appropriate vocational training, social services, and life support skills. Friends International researches the needs of children at risk, creates drop-in centers, and develops holistic services to reduce the many perils prevalent in the lives of homeless children so that the disadvantaged youngsters may receive the nurturing and support necessary to live a fulfilling, healthy life. Since its establishment, Friends International (in Indonesia called “Teman Baik”) has provided services to over 500 individual children and youth. Over the first 2008 semester, the project worked with a total of 7,649 children per month. An average of 90 children and youth per day are contacted by the team and provided with services including counseling, non-formal education, life skills education, music and art classes.
