East Indonesia Focus

_thumbnail_Esther_donating_school_supplies_in_east_Indonesia.JPG Since the beginning of 2007, TFI in Indonesia has given particular emphasis to helping in the eastern regions of Indonesia. The population of eastern Indonesia exceeds 30,000,000 and consists of many thousands of islands. Some of the areas we work in are among the most underdeveloped in the country. We conduct an ongoing educational support program which has aided dozens of schools in this region, extensively in areas around Ruteng, Ende and Maumere in Flores, as well as Kupang and Atambua in Timor. In Flores, Ambon and Timor, through the generous support of local sponsors, we have been able to distribute many tons of humanitarian supplies to the needy villages. In addition, TFI aided in the locating of interested sponsors which facilitated the construction of a new school building in Atambua along the border of Timor Leste. TFI also sponsors projects in Makassar and Papua providing free health care and hygiene education.
