expatriate information for Indonesia

Rahmania Foundation has been helping the abandoned, orphaned and needy children of Indonesia since its inception. The monies raised through our activities are used to further this cause by providing education scholarships to these needy children. If you are interested in donating to this worthwhile cause, then please contact us.

While our main activities are to support orphans and needy children with scholarships, we are always ready to cooperate with those who want to help the poor children of Indonesia.

The Rahmania Foundation, founded about 13 years ago assists orphans and needy children in the poor villages in Jakarta, Bekasi, Banten, Tasikmalaya and Aceh. The foundation currently supports 300 orphans and needy children, ensuring their continuing education by paying for their Elementary and Secondary School education (SD and SMP) and related expenses.

Since 2001, Rahmania Foundation has the Vocational Training Center and Orphanage in Aceh. At the beginning, the center only took 20 orphans from 20 villages in Aceh for training in motorcycle and car repair. They attended the training center for six months and after that will return to their villages to open their own businesses. This training ensures their independence and a working career as mechanics/entrepreneurs.

After the tsunami in Aceh on December 26th, 2004, the Rahmania Foundation also active in helping children. We have been able to sponsor about 600 children who were victims of the tsunami. The vocational training center is extended to these children as well. We have 4 buildings for the training center: two in Lhokseumawe (soft training, orphanage and motorcycle training in collaboration with Suzuki), 1 in Bireuen (automotive training center), and 1 in Trienggading for a community training center.
