As we know, Indonesia as a developing country has lots of problems. There are so many criminalities, disasters, and political conflicts. The worst, many criminals like the corruptors come from educated people. They have both good education background and good career. They never satisfied with they are already get. On the other hand, the poor people, human right abuse, and disaster’s victim increased.
According to those incidents, I think Indonesia needs more philanthropist rather than well-educated and smart politicians. We need someone who devotes the time, money, and efforts towards helping others.
Considering, philantrophy in Indonesia covers education, rehabilitation, recovery, and empowerment.
* Education philantrophy through foster-parenting, and scholarship to young people who get academic excellence
* Rehabilitation philantrophy is provided by many state-owned / private-owned to offer treatment for children with physical and learning disabilities, drug addict.
* Recovery philantrophy through help the victims of catastrophes ( a natural disasters and political conflict ) and destruction of infrastructures
* Empowerment philantrophy through protect & prevent women and children from violence, exploitation, and abuse. ( KOMNAS HAM focus on securing the rights, protection, also future women and children )
I prefer to take an interest in education’s problem. Many children can’t continue their studies so educational philanthropy through foster- parenting to make the children through school when their parents can’t afford it. Indonesia must have many young generations who responsible the betterment of this country.
