Vopak Indonesia (Merak)
With this project, a group of 60 children (aged 10-14) living in a nearby orphanage are being supported. The teenagers are either orphans or children from poor single-parent families and have little opportunity to move up the social ladder. Without the right guidance and support, the children are at risk of despair and negative association with gangs and crimes.
The Vopak WeConnect team at Jakarta supports the children by:
- setting up a basic English language training
- setting up a computer training for basic programs such as MS Word, Excel and Powerpoint
- setting up a library to encourage their reading interest
- providing the necessary resources and tools
Vopak employees are involved in the computer training, storytelling, providing home safety awareness and basic improvement towards a more conducive learning environment.
The program will be conducted throughout the year 2018.
