Dian lives on the plains of Selokaton, home to approximately 11,000 residents. Typical houses are constructed of tile floors, brick walls and tile roofs. The primary ethnic group and language is Javanese.

The regional diet consists of goat, soybeans and rice. Common health problems in this area include fevers and influenza. Most adults in Selokaton work in factories and earn the equivalent of $85 per month. This community needs employment opportunities, qualified teachers and schools.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Toyo Pangesangan Student Center to provide Dian with Bible studies, medical exams, nutritious food, sports, leadership training, English classes and computer courses. The center staff will also provide seminars and fellowship for the parents or guardians of Dian.
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.
