Reaching Out to Others in Flores

Reaching Out to Others in Flores

For the past four years, Family Care Indonesia volunteers have made regular visits to West Flores Island to help the village people there. In June, project coordinator, Frances, along with 8 FCI youth volunteers returned again to Flores.

This time they visited 5 villages, 9 schools and several institutions including a facility for handicapped and blind children in the 2 weeks they were there. FCI volunteers personally distributed clothing, school supplies, and food and interacted with the villagers. They also organized a program of fun activities and games for the children in the villages visited.

Our goal in visiting these distant islands is to encourage and motivate the children and young people living there to overcome the many difficulties they face in life and gain determination to reach their goals and make their dreams possible.

Boro Asri Menoreh

Boro Asri Menoreh

In July, Family Care Indonesia members joined with friends, Pak Har and Pak Panji, in a grassroots team-building and character-building project in Boro, Central Java. Pak Har and Pak Panji successfully initiated an outbound project called Boro Asri Menoreh.

Employing the help of local farmers and villagers, this outbound project offers a variety of activities for children which teaches them to appreciate traditional farming skills and gives them opportunities to interact with nature. These skills and activities include plowing with water buffalo, rice planting, making and paddling a raft and making toys from available natural sources. Numerous local schools are already taking advantage of this learning program. FCI is also channeling donations towards the building of one of a series of traditional Javanese houses which will be used as part of the outbound project.
