YUM manages many different projects in three areas:
Yayasan Usaha Mulia (YUM) is working to address the poor education levels helping young Indonesians receive an education. By providing children with assistance to go to school, and access to a range of educational resources, YUM aims to help youths improve their own futures and that of the entire nation. For millions of destitute families throughout Indonesia, the cost of education prohibits them from keeping their children in school. Consequently, the cycle of poverty continues. YUM firmly believes that access to education is the key to breaking this cycle – by giving young people the chance to reach their full potential. The YUM Education Projects provide access to formal and informal educational opportunities for young people in West Java, Aceh and Central Kalimantan.
- Children's Libraries
- Child sponsorship and scholarships
Yayasan Usaha Mulia (YUM) recognizes the need for communities to support their own development and, through a range of community development projects, aims to give local communities the support they need to grow and prosper. YUM believes that by including local community members in all aspects of a project’s life, the local community will not only benefit from the outcomes of the project, but will also learn from the process and be able to sustain the benefits into the future. The community development projects YUM undertakes are particularly focused on strengthening community networks and, subsequently, improving the communities’ ability to work and grow, as a group.
- Cipanas YUM Village (CYV)
- Aceh Community Center
- Women-to-Women Microcredit Program
Yayasan Usaha Mulia (YUM) is working to address health improvement in
Central Kalimantan and to improve the health of local residents through a range of health projects. Central Kalimantan is one of Indonesia’s least developed regions, and its residents face a number of health issues that predominantly stem from the environment in which they live and work. There is a severe lack of knowledge on how to maintain good health among the local community, and those that do seek treatment usually do so from an untrained member of the community who has limited, if any, access to proper medicine. The projects YUM is undertaking provide the resources and products needed to treat health issues and, notably, they also focus on education and preventative measures.
