Indonesia: Boarding Homes in Makassar

Since Indonesian village schools are poorly equipped, many parents send their children to secondary schools in the city. There the children find lodging and supportive care in Christian boarding homes.

Indonesia: New Training Fields

Young people living in small villages on Sulawesi have hardly any training opportunities. Two Indonesian churches want to help these young people on their way to a better future by offering them a number of different training courses.

Indonesia: Work with Handicapped Children

They are a "punishment from God". Children with handicaps in Indonesia still suffer from this reputation. A women's initiative of the Taraja Church breaks through the isolation of these children and stands up for their rights.

Indonesia: Rearing Animals – A Way out of Poverty

A poor economic situation, great poverty and next to no perspectives: farmers in Indonesia often live on the edge of survival. Three local churches open up better life prospects to families with an agricultural animal breeding project.

Indonesia: Children's Home "Entrusted Love"

Many Indonesian children and adolescents have been exposed to violence and hunger or have lost their parents or homes at an early age. They find a new home at the "Entrusted Love" children's home.

Indonesia: Musical Training for Young People

The Indonesian island of Sulawesi has many young immigrants. They often struggle with identity problems at their new residence. At the music laboratory of the Indonesian Protestant Church in Donggala they receive new prospects for the future and a musical training.

Indonesia: Sustainable Community Development

Sulawesi is one of the poorer islands in Indonesia. Religious conflicts, lack of food or the danger of AIDS are only some of the local problems. The churches are fighting intensively to sustainably improve the conditions of life in their parishes.
