“The child must know that he is a miracle, that since the beginning of the world there hasn’t been, and until the end of the world there will not be, another child like him.”

Pablo Casals quotes (Spanish Cellist and Conductor)

“Poverty” is sadly a word usually used to describe Indonesia.

Despite the fast economic growth over the past few years, more than 50 percent of Indonesia’s 240 million people still live on $2 or less a day. One quarter of those living in poverty are children. Indonesian children bear the brunt of the impact of poverty – the sharp rise of child malnutrition, higher mortality rates, school drop outs, under age labour, children trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation are just few issues that poor Indonesian children face in their day-to-day life.

To tackle this problem, the solution must therefore lie in providing greater empowerment and more economic opportunities for the people, in particular the very poor.

RedMission Indonesia is a non-profit humanitarian movement to help Indonesian children in unfortunate situations. Children’s rights and values serve as a foundation for our charity movement.

Our mission is to bring real and lasting change to Indonesian children living in poverty by investing in their potential and provide them with the opportunity to grow up healthy, educated and be prepared to succeed and contribute to society.

RedMission Indonesia’s sponsorship program is designed to impact every aspect of a child’s life. Sponsored children receive life-changing assistance in areas such as:

  • Health: access to a doctor, vaccines, medicine, helping children in need of expensive medical treatment, etc
  • Education: Creating sponsorships intended to provide education for the children, purchasing school materials, restoration of schools, etc

As a children’s charity movement, we measure ourselves by the joy we see on all of the faces we help. We hope that this blog will inspire you to be always grateful of the blessings you have received in your life and always remember that somewhere out there, there is a child that may need your help – a child that has the same opportunity in life as you and I.

Your help, however small WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
