THE LONGER STORY
Who are these kids?
Initially, only street children were given a safe place to live, food, health care, and gotten into schooling. Over time, children with other problems were either found, or brought to the Center. They include a combination of either abused, abandoned, disabled, needing important medical or surgical help, or girls needing to continue schooling. They have either no parent, one or two parents, and all need help.
Where do the children come from?
Children come from the streets, slums, remote villages or other islands of Indonesia.
Do the children go to school? Does it cost?
When old enough, all go to various types of government schooling. Yes it costs money for schooling.

The charity has visitors who bring clothing, food, supplies and donations. Many (but only 70%) have a sponsor who contributes towards the approximate $100/month living and school costs. They also sell handicraft dolls. All donated funds go to childrens living expenses, immediate local support staff, buildings upkeep, logistics, and costs to attend school.
