Aiko is a quiet little girl who loves singing and dancing. She lives with her parents and her sister in a slum community in rural Indonesia. These living conditions jeopardize Aiko’s health and safety daily. Her father works in construction but does not have a consistent income. The lack of construction work caused by COVID-19 put Aiko’s father out of work for many months, so he can no longer meet his family’s minimum daily needs. Aiko’s dream is to become a teacher, but she needs a consistent education in order to achieve that dream, and her parents cannot afford her school fees. By sponsoring Aiko, you can give her the opportunity to receive the education she needs to pursue her dream along with nutritious food, medical care, and clothing. Most importantly, Aiko will hear the gospel and will be discipled as she grows in her relationship with her Savior. Thank you for giving her this opportunity.

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.
