Olin lives with her father and her mother. Her duties at home include cleaning. There are 2 children in the family. Her father is sometimes employed as a laborer and her mother maintains the home.

For fun, Olin enjoys singing and playing house. She attends church activities regularly and is in primary school where her performance is average.

Your love and support will help Olin to receive the assistance she needs to develop her potential. Please pray for her.
Olin lives in the hillside community of Sijangkung, home to approximately 9,000 residents. Typical houses are constructed of cement floors, brick walls and tin roofs. The primary ethnic group and language is Chinese.

The regional diet consists of chicken, plantains and rice. Common health problems in this area include diarrhea and dengue fever. Most adults in Sijangkung work as day laborers and earn the equivalent of $150 per month. This community has electricity, clean water and sanitation but needs employment opportunities, income-generating skills and reliable public transportation.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Pelita Harapan Student Center to provide Olin with Bible classes, nutritious food, medical checkups, outdoor activities, music and singing classes, handicraft training, community service opportunities, school fees, academic support and life skills training. The center staff will also provide health and hygiene education and child protection workshops for the parents or guardians of Olin.
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.
