Project: IO-126, Delada Student Center

Location: Helefanikha, 245 km southwest of Medan, Indonesia

Elfin lives in the island community of Helefanikha, home to approximately 700 residents. Typical houses are constructed of cement floors, brick walls and tin roofs. The primary ethnic group and language is Nias.

The regional diet consists of rice. Common health problems in this area include dengue fever, malaria and diarrhea. Most adults in Helefanikha work as subsistence farmers and earn the equivalent of $53 per month. This community needs improved sanitation, water, educational materials, skills training and employment opportunities.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Delada Student Center to provide Elfin with Bible studies, sports, nutritious food, character building programs, medical checkups, special celebrations and reading and writing classes. The center staff will also provide meetings and seminars for the parents or guardians of Elfin.
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 700 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 1968 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.
