Construction is well under way on the Hope Vocational Training Center. Once complete, our center will train and equip students in practical and marketable skills. Our focus will be on developing competencies in computer skills, healthcare, sewing and fashion, culinary, business, management, and the trades. The values of excellence, integrity and community service will be embedded in all training courses and practicums.

Indonesia is a nation that has one of the world’s fastest-growing economies, but unfortunately, that economic progress has not trickled down to lower-income families.

We are empowering women from urban poor communities with the opportunity to develop their own business through a tested and proven micro-loan model that has already lifted thousands of women out of poverty.

Our leadership reports that women in the program have experienced increased economic opportunity, elevated status in the community, increased health, sufficient housing, and sufficient food and nutrition for themselves and their families.

Our training and support give women tools and confidence to make their businesses successful as they experience the dignity of earning their own income and providing for the needs of their children.

Our school began with 23 children in kindergarten and now reaches 700 students in kindergarten, primary and secondary school. Our team of 50 staff serve as mentors, tutors, and teachers who have a high sense of ownership in the school and pride for each student and family.
