Eka lives in the mountainous community of Walani, home to approximately 2,500 residents. Typical houses are constructed of cement floors, wood walls and tin roofs. The primary ethnic group is Dani and the most commonly spoken language is Lani.

The regional diet consists of sweet potatoes. Common health problems in this area include influenza and diarrhea. Most adults in Walani are unemployed but some work on plantations and earn the equivalent of $61 per month. This community needs public transportation, a secondary school, vocational training centers and employment opportunities.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Walani Student Center to provide Eka with Bible studies, sports, hygiene and health education, voluntary service opportunities, group activities and vocational skills training. The center staff will also provide child development training for the parents or guardians of Eka.
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.
