The slum areas of North Jakarta, Indonesia, are characterised by extreme poverty and crime, with poor levels of health and education as well as a lack of development, which ultimates in limited possibilities for marginalised people to break out of the cycle of poverty.
Targeting 20 teachers and over 4,000 male and female students, the two-year project aims to develop the core competencies of vulnerable youth and adults in the slums. With the help of a blended participatory classroom workshop and youth development methodology, the project works to bring health, life skills, gender equality and circular economy education to the target group. In addition, the project also looks to recruit, train, and employ talented adult beneficiaries to lead the programme in the future.
