Agape Child Survival Program (Indonesia)
Southern part of Kupang, Indonesia

The southern part of Kupang, Indonesia is home to a large number of desperately poor women and children. The average family has five children, but most of the young mothers have little to no experience or knowledge of how to care for them.

A lack of food and other basic resources leads to malnutrition, making many of these children prone to health problems such as diarrhea, dengue, malaria and acute respiratory infections.

Most women in this area are uneducated and unskilled, with no chance to generate income to provide for the needs of their families or escape the overwhelming burden of poverty. For many, it is a vicious, unending cycle.

This is where the Agape Child Survival Program comes in. The Agape CSP is a ray of hope for the young mothers in this struggling community. The center provides families with life-changing benefits like:

  • monthly supplemental food and vitamins
  • regular health care and medical checkups
  • basic hygienic supplies like soap, shampoo and towels
  • school supplies and toys for the children
  • a Bible and spiritual instruction
  • literacy training for mothers
  • income-generation skills

When you support the Agape CSP, you literally change lives. Children have a chance to survive and escape the generational cycle of poverty. Mothers are given the opportunity to learn skills that they might otherwise never have and a hope that life can be different for them and their children.

Flora lives with her two children and attends Agape CSP with the younger child, three-year-old Cinta. Her husband works as a motorcycle taxi driver, earning $2 a day. Flora and Cinta have attended Agape CSP for two years.

As a part of the CSP, Flora has learned embroidery and beadwork, which she is able to sell to earn money. She has also connected with other mothers in the center. Flora is grateful for the many ways Agape CSP has changed her life.

I can be a better mother to my children as I learn many new things at the CSP. I have friends among the mothers at church, whom I can talk to when I have problems and need a friend around.
