Our Efforts

Problems Observed

Within the economy, there are increasing food shortages, unemployment rates, and bankruptcy. Indonesia is the 4th most populated country in the world and overpopulation has become a problem in recent years. The quality of education in Indonesia is not the best and can often be attributed to the financial problems within the country. There are a low number of resources when it comes to education and many adults do not pursue higher education. According to OECD, only 3% of children under the age of 2 receive a childhood education and care in Indonesia, this is far below when compared to other countries. Another statistic in OECD remarks that “In 2017, about 16% of young adults in Indonesia had attained a tertiary education, well below the G20 average of 38%." As can be observed from the logistics above, certain parts of Indonesia need mentorship, and Strive 2 Thrive serves the purpose of helping children in Indonesia receive a good education.

Our Response

General Summary of our work: Strive 2 Thrive has made efforts to help children in Indonesia through their efforts in working with school officials and student governments along with providing numerous opportunities for children to advance academically in school, daily life, and for their future. We have also made the effort of building more inclusive programs for marginalized groups.

Importance of our work section and some of the impacts: Through the work here, we have helped many kids in Indonesia receive a better education. The importance of educating kids is so much more than what many countries and education systems offer children. Education can go a long way for people of Indonesia, for example many women go without a tertiary education resulting in low employment rates. Although, with our programs we are helping young students learn skills that will prove to be necessary to lead a successful future and career. With our organization we can focus on children increasing their knowledge and connecting with amazing mentors on their way to success!
