A SHORT STORY OF GRIYA KINASIH
( CHILDREN HOME )
It started in 1999 from the idea of the teachers of the secondary school of Pamerdi School to help children who has financial difficulties and not able to continue their study without help.
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 children.
Then the number of children increased, especially because of a flood that damaged a village named Pujiharjo ( in the ) south of Malang and caused a lot of sorrow to the villagers , who loose their income. Their fields became a mixture of stone and mud and is hardly possible to plant on it.
As the house became to small for those children, we had to hired the second house and used it as girls dormitory.
The purpose of raising this project is not only to provide a house but a HOME for the children who need help because of financial reasons.
The children joining our dormitory has several backgrounds,
• Some because the parents are not able to pay transport or can not afford to pay for their study at all.
• Some come from broken homes, or has single parent or live with grand parents who are already too old and are not able to pay the school expenses.
• Some are not taken care by their parents or relatives at all or are orphans.
With God’s blessing in 2005 we manage to buy a house and a piece of land next to it , sponsored by Miss Carla.
This house we used as a girl’s dormitory. While the boys still stay in a hired house.
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.
The expenses of this dormitory is approximately Rp. 30.000.000,- ( thirty million rupiah ) every month, to pay food, water and electricity , wages of the supervisor etc.
We cover the expenses from the donation of sponsors and from the church.
The children study at the Pamerdi School, which is 5 minutes walk from the dormitory.
At school they learn also computer, drum band, music, and traditional dances.
Since December 2005 we manage to renovate part of the house.
With God’s help, in 2006 we managed to start building the boys home.
At the moment the project for the multipurpose hall, water reservoir, some part of the fences, renovation for the sealing of the girls dormitory has been done.
At the moment we have ± 50 boys and girls staying at our dormitory and 2010 we choose the name “ Griya Kinasih “ for our dormitory which has a meaning “ The House of Love “
