Indonesia has 259 million people, 86% of them are Muslim and many are poor. Poverty doesn’t just affect the present for these families and children in Indonesia … it affects their entire futures.
Many children drop out of school because their families cannot afford for them to go. The children then begin working to help provide the needs of their families, but because they are largely unskilled and uneducated they can only get low paying jobs. The children become stuck in these low paying jobs that will not cover the needs of their own families as they grow … and the cycle of poverty continues. It’s truly heartbreaking, isn’t it?
