Victory Child Survival Program - (INDONESIA)
Tumobui, Indonesia

In the community of Tumobui in east Indonesia, the average age for a woman to become a first time mother is 17.

Becoming a mother at such a young age in a community marked by poverty is producing devastating results. In this community, several of the babies die at a young age or are born with serious mental and physical disabilities.

Basic needs that allow babies to survive and thrive are out of reach. This is where the Child Survival Program (CSP) steps in.

The CSP in Tumobui is focused on equipping mothers and babies with life-saving supplies as well as nutritious food.

But it's not just about providing supplies, it's also about education. Mother's who attend this CSP learn about:

  • how to keep a clean and safe home
  • the importance of nutrition
  • how to interact with and educate their children at the time of infancy

Mothers also have the opportunity to learn crucial income generating skills in order to support their family.

When you support this center you are not just sustaining the life of an infant, you are providing a chance for mothers and babies to thrive.

Meet Yulita and Queenly

Yulita is a stay at home mom and her husband is a motorcycle rickshaw driver. He only makes enough money for minimal food provisions for his family.

At the end of the day, Yulita was left with little to no resources to prepare for her pregnancy and to care for her newborn baby that was soon on the way.

In the midst of these desperate circumstances, there was hope. Yulita registered for the Child Survival Program (CSP) which provided her with everything she needed to deliver a healthy baby. She was able to visit a doctor for health check-ups, get necessary vitamins to keep her and her unborn baby girl healthy, and she was taught how to care for her baby.

Today, Queenly, Yulita's daughter, is 2 years old. Her and her baby are healthy. When Yulita was asked what she enjoyed most about attending the CSP center she replied, "In the group sessions I can have knowledge of taking care of a child well and study God’s word deeper."

  • Home Visits

  • Childcare lessons
  • Spiritual training

When you support the Child Survival Program, your charity donation helps Compassion's local partners reduce infant and child mortality by:

  • Preventing illness. Regular prenatal and postnatal checkups contribute greatly to healthy births. And regular doctor visits and immunizations keep infants and toddlers healthy and happy.
  • Giving children a healthy start. Nutritious food staples and supplements help children grow and stay strong.
  • Providing training. Mother and caregiver training means children receive mental and physical stimulation activities to improve and develop motor skills, social-emotional skills and cognitive development.
  • Empowering mothers and caregivers. Infant development and safety, nutrition, literacy and job training skills are just a few of the topics the Child Survival Program training includes.
  • Offering spiritual nurturing. Mothers establish relationships with Christian Survival Specialists through regular home visits. They also build relationships and a community of faith with other women through local group meetings.
  • Include family training. When possible, fathers and other family and other family members living in the home are included in training to help build a stable, secure environments for the child.
