Yayasan Gunungan Orphanage & Relief Center
Founded in 2006 in Solo, Central Java, Indonesia, Yayasan Gunungan provides a range of social services to various target groups within the local community. For orphaned and neglected children, Yayasan Gunungan runs a Children's Refuge in the city center providing them with a safe and loving home, together with a variety of extra-curricula activities. Plans are underway to hopefully build and relocate to a small Children's Village in the countryside just outside the city. A rehabilitation center called 'Sehati', or 'One Heart', has also been established for young women and children who are victims of commercial sexual exploitation, trafficking and abuse to help rebuild their lives. In addition, Yayasan Gunungan also runs a Charity Shop in Solo, which sells items donated free by local businesses, to help raise funds for the organisation's activities, while providing training and employment opportunities to young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. With these initiatives, Yayasan Gunungan is dedicated to supporting and educating those suffering the worst hardship and distress, by giving them opportunities to enhance their lives and thereby help themselves.
