Jili lives in the hillside community of Remboken, home to approximately 11,700 residents. Typical houses are constructed of wood and have corrugated iron roofs. The primary ethnic group and language is Minahasa.

The regional diet consists of fish and rice. Common health problems in this area include respiratory illnesses. Most adults in Remboken work on plantations and earn the equivalent of $91 per month. This community has electricity, telephone service and a hospital but needs vocational training, tuition assistance and scholastic materials.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Sola Gratia Student Center to provide Jili with Bible studies, sports, medical checkups, nutritious food, social events, community service opportunities, tutoring, school fees and scholastic materials. The center staff will also provide meetings, home visits and community service opportunities for the parents or guardians of Jili.
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.
