The Vision Driving Them Forward
Providing young people with the education and life skills necessary to live a better life (classes include a variety of topics: English, IT, health, nutrition, sports, music, art and more).
Increasing awareness and knowledge around waste management and BGBJ living conditions, by providing site visits for school excursions.
Fostering a healthy and safe learning environment.
Extending reach throughout the community by creating a social enterprise, offering safe working conditions, real-world skills and a decent wage.
As you can see and imagine, extremely poor living conditions are their reality. There are over 3,000 families living on the rubbish landfill. Parents earn a meagre income by picking through around 8,000 tonnes of trash coming in everyday from Jakarta and beyond. As a result, many children are forced to work instead of learn, because money and immediate survival is prioritized over education. This is a major challenge for BGBJ.
