DSCF0927 We drove down this Street to Yayasan Puspita in 201o being the smallest Yayasan building we had ever visited . We were pleased to supply Computers for the children’s education . Early this year David (PHMF) made these comments : They are an amazing group of 16 kids brimming with enthusiasm (mostly economic orphans), they have a teacher who lives there. They have an exit plan as kids finish school and can move to the Bogor location for vocation training (previously supported by NZ embassy). The boys sleep downstairs, by day this is the living/dining room and the girls upstairs.  A few years ago there was an extension to the roof done with limited funds but due to poor finishing it leaks profusely every time it rains.  Pak Samiran of ANZA is currently preparing a quote to repair, replace very heavy tiles with cement sheet that will cover the open bathrooms, safety railing and painting.  They have a TV that doesn’t work due to water damage that I suggest replacing once the roof is done. Estimated total cost is Rp100m. They have been fortunate to have a ANZA Volunteer Sarah Rees who used to ride a bicycle through the rush hour traffic to get to Puspita to teach on Tuesday evenings! She always said the warm welcome and enthusiasm for learning made it worth while. We think she was very brave.  An amazing lady who will be missed  very much at ANZA. She is currently in Kuala Lumpur with her husband and little Laura who they recently adopted in Indonesia. The Foundation has purchased the TV and the roof will be complete before the rainy season .
