BGBJ and Kampung Kids

Main aim of the charity

Break the Poverty Cycle

How the employee got involved and why

I believe education is the way to change people, a nation or the world. I am lucky enough to able to learn English and a chance to travel the world. But not every child has access to education, simply because they need to work to survive the day. After graduating from university, I volunteer as an English teacher in my hometown, Jakarta. The NGO called Kampung Kids where the children live right beside an expensive residential area. I have been coming here for a year every Saturday. Then months after that, I have been joining my friend to teach in Bantar Gebang every Sunday. Bantar Gebang is landfill area where 6000 tonnes Jakarta's rubbish dumped and people salvaging valuable materials from that waste. What I aim is to let the children be more confident in their future. They can break the poverty cycle and they know the world is very big. They are the future to make differences to the nation or world.

What work does the employee do for charity?

As a teacher, I do my best to keep my student interested in studying. I want my students to know how big the world is and there is a lot to learn outside. I really love when the class do a good job, all together we shout "WE ARE VERY GOOD."

What impact would winning have on the charity?

I want to give scholarships to children so they can pursue and focus on their study.

What impact would winning have on the employee?

By winning this I hope many people can be inspired to do something good for others.
