Nico lives on the plains of Medan Petisah, home to approximately 80,000 residents. Typical houses are constructed of cement and have plastic sheet roofs. The regional diet consists of chicken, fish and rice.

Common health problems in this area include skin diseases, influenza, coughs and fevers. Most adults in Medan Petisah work as day laborers and earn the equivalent of $60 per month. This community needs a water supply and improved housing.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Talitakum Student Center to provide Nico with Bible teaching, medical checkups, nutritious food, character building programs, tutoring, English classes and computer courses. The center staff will also provide meetings and seminars for the parents or guardians of Nico.
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.
