What is Remaja Masa Depan (RMD) Foundation?
RMD Foundation is an Indonesian civil society organization whose principal purpose is to advocate and empower abandoned children, street kids, dropouts, child labors, and orphans. It works toward the liberation of the child from the suffering caused by working on the street, trafficking in persons, dropping out of school, and living with no families, no parents, and no home. Our beneficiaries are not only children, but also their families.
RMD Foundation was formed by three social volunteers on 19 July, 1999 in Jakarta, when Indonesia was hit by the severe monetary crisis, which especially affected the poorer levels of society and the most vulnerable people, namely socially disadvantaged children. At the moment (fourteen years later-after the economic crisis happened ), the number of street kids, dropouts, orphans, child labors, and abandoned children tends to increase year by year. The problems faced by them are overwhelming and their plight hard to imagine. They are the most needy people and the least assisted. Most of them reflect an imagine of deprivation, misery, suffering, neglect, and even torture. They do not have any access to adequate nutrition, clothing, housing, health services, and aducation services. Their daily lives are likely to be far removed from the childhood envisioned in the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Their Presence elicits emotive public concern, has been given considerable media coverage, and has become a matter of priority for national and international child welfare organizations. Concerned about their future, RMD Foundation provides many social programs, namely a free of charge school, a free of charge tutorial program for them, vocational training, microfinance, orphanage,and scholarship.
As time went on, the number of requests for assistance received by RMD Foundation increased, from the small to the relatively large. For this reason, RMD Foundation needs more donation/support.
