Vandi lives with his father and his mother. His father is sometimes employed as a farmer and his mother maintains the home. Vandi works at home running errands.

As part of Compassion's ministry, Vandi participates in church activities. He is also in primary school where his performance is average. Playing with marbles is his favorite activity.

Your love and support will help Vandi to receive the assistance he needs to develop his potential. Please pray for him.
Vandi lives in the coastal community of Manalu, home to approximately 800 residents. Typical houses are constructed of wood and have tin roofs. The primary ethnic group is Sangihe.

The regional diet consists of fish and sago (starch extracted from palm trees). A common health problem in this area is malaria. Most adults in Manalu work as fishermen and earn the equivalent of $60 per month. This community needs improved sanitation, clean water, a public library and vocational skills training.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Anugerah-Nya Student Center to provide Vandi with Bible studies, retreats, special celebrations, nutritious food, medical checkups, vitamins, arts courses, outdoor and indoor activities, scholastic materials, tuition, English classes and academic support. The center staff will also provide worship services, counseling and health workshops for the parents or guardians of Vandi.
Indonesia consists of 17,000 islands along the equator between Australia and Asia. The larger islands have central mountain ranges and fertile plains and lowlands. The climate is tropical with a rainy season from October to April.

The country squeezes a population nearly the size of the United States into a landmass roughly triple the size of Texas; it has the fourth largest population in the world. Indonesia is also a diverse nation with many resources. More than 300 languages are spoken but the most common is Bahasa Indonesia. Islam claims 90 percent of Indonesians; however, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism and animism are also practiced.

When Columbus sailed from Spain in 1492, he sought a new route to the Spice Islands of Indonesia. The Portuguese arrived in the sixteenth century but in 1602 the Dutch began slowly gaining control of the islands. Following Japanese occupation during World War II, the country, led by Sukarno, proclaimed independence in 1945. Suharto ousted Sukarno in 1967 and held the presidency of the military-controlled republic until 1998, when a collapsing economy fueled riots and demands for reforms. In 2001, the country elected a female leader, President Megawati Sukarnoputri.
