Project Overview

This initiative is led by our community project organization partner in Bogor, West Java, who focuses their effort in giving the underprivileged youth practical skills such as basic IT/Web design, film/photography, music/art/writing, sewing/cooking/gardening techniques, as well as English language to find suitable opportunities for employment or further education.

The project is about instilling aspiration to marginalized youths that they can change their lives and that nothing is impossible.Since being established in 2002, the community project organization we worked with has developed eight training programs to equip the marginalized youths with knowledge to prepare them in joining the workforce and improve their living conditions. The program manages training initiatives such as city tour service business, online store for textile and handcrafting products, and graphic design company.The organization has also sponsored many families to send their children to public schools.

Social Life
Bogor is located 90 kilometers and 1.5 hours north of Jakarta at an elevation of between 200 and 300 metres above sea level. It’s a much more relaxed place than Jakarta and it’s primarily due to the way the city was constructed with an enormous botanical garden at its core. This garden is the largest tourist attraction in town, but there are other things to do while you’re Bogor such as: visits to a little gong factory in Pancasan. A home industry at its finest, this is one of the few remaining gongsmiths in Java, where you can see gamelan instruments smelted over a charcoal fire by hand.

"The main thing I took away from volunteering abroad was how incredible it is to be able to come together to work with people from all over the world! I made a lot of new friends."
