Agnes wants to become a nurse one day. She lives with her family on the island of East Java, Indonesia. They are Muslim. Agnes’ father works as a noodle seller in front of their house. His income is uncertain so it is difficult to provide for the family. The current economic conditions are not good for him. They live in the slums of a densely populated area. Their house is made of brick, dirt floor and no electricity. Your sponsorship will provide this young girl with nutritious food and an education. In addition to meeting her physical needs, she will experience the love of Jesus at the childcare center. May the Lord bless you for your kindness.

Indonesia is a predominately Muslim country in Southeast Asia. Many work as farmers, but due to the uncertain climate it’s difficult for them to maintain their crops. Other common occupations include construction workers, freelancers, and house cleaners. Many of the families are poor and do not have the funds to pay for medical treatment. Multiple families have to live together in the same house a lot of the time. Many parents lack a formal education and get married young. Domestic violence is also prominent and husbands are prone to leave their families.
