Few years ago, Ile Gerong's children don't get higher education until university level...
The Indonesian duo, in the third year of middle school in East Flores, are fearless when speaking to local officials.
World Vision Indonesia's relief, development and advocacy work is based on a vision of a world committed to the well-being of children. We strive to build thriving communities where peace and justice will prevail and all can enjoy security, opportunity and contentment.
World Vision Indonesia believes that the best way to help a child is through their family and community. Therefore, at the heart of our transformational community development work are Area Development Programmes (ADPs). These are a comprehensive way to tackle poverty across extensive areas, usually involving several villages and communities. World Vision Indonesia staff work with local people to plan and implement a programme that will last for up to 15 years, depending on the pace of change and capacities of local partners to sustain and expand improvements in quality of life.
Within our programme areas we work with communities on a range of issues (education, health, food supplies etc.) to improve and sustain their quality of life. When working with the communities, our priority is to help them find ways to improve their futures, with a special focuse on the needs of children.
World Vision Indonesia helps to save lives in many ways. One of the most effective ways is our emergency response. We are committed to long-term rehabilitation, working with communities to mitigate disasters and to increase their ability to cope with future emergencies.
