What is Griya Kinasih do?
Pioneered by a sponsor from the USA (Miss Carla) in the year 2000, we hired a house and used it as a dormitory for the underprivileged children. As the house became to small for those children, we had to hired the second house and used it as girls dorm. The purpose of raising this project is not only to provide a house but a HOME for the underprivileged children who need help because of financial reasons. We provide board and lodgings for the children , with 3 meals. Parent who are able to pay, help our expenses according to their ability. For children from really poor families it is totally free of charge.
