The food packages where provided by Yayasan Harapan Baru from PT Metropolitan Retailmart. We distributed 140 packages and visited the people who receive these packages as an annual program during the Muslim fasting month. These visits are an exciting experience for us to share a moment of joy and see the smiles on the faces of those we visit.

Esther along with her friend Nina also visited Ciawi to distribute 70 food staple packages to the elderly and widows.

STEPS Character Building Book Distribution to Isolated Islands

STEPS Character Building Book Distribution to Isolated Islands Family Care Indonesia volunteers travel to the Islands of Sangihe Talaud to distribute STEPS Character Building Curriculum Sets to preschools and primary schools. This month our team spent 2 weeks traveling to the islands north of Manado, Sulawesi to distribute 85 sets of STEPS to 7 different Islands.

STEPS Character Building Book Distribution to Isolated Islands Each school receives one set to use as a master to copy from. Whenever possible we try to gather a representative from schools in an area for a meeting or in some cases we visit individual schools. We provide teachers with instruction on how to use the sets and interact with the children in the schools that we visit. We were also invited to speak in 6 different high schools on the importance of character building.

This is an ongoing project, as there are much more than 85 preschools in this area.

A special thanks to sponsors in Jakarta who funded these books and made this project possible.
