Your sponsored child, Rizky, lives in the Harapan Student Center. His duties include running errands.

For fun, Rizky enjoys soccer, playing ball games and baseball. He attends church activities and choir regularly and is in primary school where his performance is average.

Rizky especially needs your love and care because he is blind in one eye. Because of your sponsorship, however, he is better able to lead a well-adjusted life. Please pray for him.
Rizky lives in the hillside community of Bawen, home to approximately 20,100 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, coughs, dengue fever, malnutrition and bronchitis. Most adults in Bawen work in factories and earn the equivalent of $29 per month. This community has water, electricity and health facilities but needs employment opportunities and skills training.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Harapan Student Center to provide Rizky with Bible studies, health checkups, nutritious food, sports, on-the-job training, computer lessons, English classes and learning for life training. The center staff will also provide meetings for the parents or guardians of Rizky.
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.
