(May 2017) Foundation 4Life and 4Life Indonesia staff members hosted a service day at the Foundation 4Life community centers in Tegallangkap and Cikareo, West Java, Indonesia. These villages are part of a family strengthening program sponsored by Foundation 4Life and SOS Children’s Villages. This multi-year sponsorship provides families with resources to develop knowledge and skills to achieve self-reliance.
During the event, everyone participated in a race where each team had to complete a series of tasks designed to showcase the learning activities provided at the community centers. Teams were made up of children from the local villages, distributors, and staff members. Tasks included making skewer sticks from bamboo, imitating Pencak Silat martial arts, displaying soccer skills, playing music using a traditional instrument from the community centers, and typing a script using Microsoft Word.
During the event, a Foundation 4Life donation was presented to SOS Children’s Villages of Indonesia for the development and improvement of the community center facilities. This donation will provide several laptops for the mobile technology program, classroom whiteboards, books for the library, uniforms, nutritious snacks, and other materials for community center programs.
“We were delighted to share this day with the children and other distributor leaders,” commented Platinum International Diamonds Dr. Eduard Hutabarat and Katharina Sihombing. “Being a part of this activity strengthened our connection to the mission of Foundation 4Life. We hope to see these children achieve their dreams in the future with the help of Foundation 4Life contributions.”
Other distributors in attendance included Gold International Diamonds Mas Ryandi and Kenny Kanita, Ahmad Kurnia Wibawa and Ratu Kotrunnada, and Nadzrul Salim and Nadirah Ahmad. 4Life Indonesia Director Hanif Harsawan and Indonesia Senior Manager Ramdony Alamsyah also attended the event.
