Pressed Flower Livelihood Programme in Indonesia

I have two sons but had to give up my second son for adoption. I started teaching a kindergarten class at Care Learning Centre in Batam in 2012. I also made some money from CCI’s Livelihood Programme making craftwork out of pressed flowers. The money helped me provide for my family.

Unfortunately, my husband was imprisoned due to a drug-related offence in 2013 and he passed away in prison in June 2014. The challenges were so tough for me that I felt like giving up.

But the practical support from Care Channels has been a great source of comfort and encouragement. I can continue to work in the kindergarten and the Care Channels Education Sponsorship for my son means he can continue schooling and have a better future. I don’t have to face the days alone.
