Anisa lives on the plains of Pameti Karata, Lewa, home to approximately 4,200 residents. Typical houses are constructed of dirt floors, bamboo walls and corrugated iron roofs. The primary ethnic group and language is Sumba.

The regional diet consists of rice. Common health problems in this area include malaria, diarrhea and skin diseases. Most adults work as subsistence farmers and earn the equivalent of $9 per month. This community needs tuition assistance, employment opportunities and suitable housing.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Pameti Karata Student Center to provide Anisa with Bible studies, special celebrations, health examinations, hygiene and health education, nutritious food, social skills training, sports, tuition, scholastic materials, computer courses and library visits. The center staff will also provide parenting classes for the parents or guardians of Anisa.
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.
