Together with his childhood friend he founded the Peduli Anak Foundation on the remote Indonesian island of Lombok. They bought 1.5 hectares of land in the middle of the rice fields and started to build a project area with shelters, schools and medical facilities from scratch. Currently, almost 10 years later, Peduli Anak employs almost 60 local staff and provides residential care, family care, medical and healthcare services to hundreds of underprivileged children. We were happy to see that over time the foundation became the example in Indonesia with regards to operating charity organisations.
Many Indonesian children have no access to basic healthcare and medicine due to poverty and illiteracy. Peduli Anak’s well-equipped clinic provides free-of-charge preventative- and primary care.
Education plays a very important role and can forever change the lives of our children. Unfortunately, primary education is not completely free for all.
Our Residential Care Programmes provides family-based residential care for children and young people who are unable to live with their families for various reasons.
Children end up on the streets for various reasons. Often, parents cannot afford food, education and medical care. Socio-economic and other factors make it hard for parents to create the ideal home environment, forcing children into child labor or onto the streets.
