In his home, Pandu helps by caring for children, helping in the kitchen and cleaning. He lives with his father and his mother. His father is sometimes employed as a laborer and his mother is sometimes employed as a laborer. There are 3 children in the family.

As part of Compassion's ministry, Pandu participates in church activities. He is also in primary school where his performance is average. Soccer, swimming and listening to music are his favorite activities.

Please remember Pandu in your prayers. Your love and support will help him to receive the assistance he needs to grow and develop.
Pandu lives in the mountainous community of Pudak Payung, home to approximately 5,000 residents. Typical houses are constructed of cement floors, brick walls and tile roofs. The primary ethnic group is Java and the most commonly spoken language is Javanese.

The regional diet consists of rice. Common health problems in this area include influenza and fevers. Most adults in Pudak Payung work as day laborers and earn the equivalent of $116 per month. This community has electricity, clean water and telephone service but needs employment opportunities, qualified teachers and life skills training.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of PPA Kemah Pertemuan Student Center to provide Pandu with Bible studies, Christmas and Easter celebrations, health screenings, nutritious food, health education, community service opportunities, birthday parties, tutoring, life skills training, English classes and computer lessons. The center staff will also provide health education, Bible studies and meetings for the parents or guardians of Pandu.
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.
