Yanti makes her home with her father and her mother. Caring for children, running errands and cleaning are her household duties. Her father is sometimes employed and her mother maintains the home. There are 6 children in the family.

As part of Compassion's ministry, Yanti participates in church activities. She is also in primary school where her performance is average. Art, playing with dolls and running are her favorite activities.

Please remember Yanti in your prayers. Your love and support will help her to receive the assistance she needs to grow and develop.
Yanti lives in the coastal community of Simpang Sicanang, home to approximately 14,900 residents. Typical houses are constructed of cement floors, wood walls and plastic sheeting roofs. The regional diet consists of chicken, fish and rice.

A common health problem in this area is skin diseases. Most adults in Simpang Sicanang work as day laborers and earn the equivalent of $145 per month. This community needs employment opportunities, skills training and computer courses.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Bintang Terang Student Center to provide Yanti with Bible studies, nutritious food, medical checkups, community service opportunities, sports, tutoring, special celebrations, English classes and computer courses. The center staff will also provide meetings and parenting seminars for the parents or guardians of Yanti.
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.
