Partner of the Week: ChildFund Indonesia

Childfund has been active in Indonesia since 1973, helping children from all age groups gain access to high-quality education. By working with parents, teachers, principals and other community members, they have reached more than 900,000 children and family members.

In 2014, Childfund introduced our ‘Aflatot’ curriculum to the Indonesia Early Childhood Development working group whose members include represenatives from other organizations such as World Vision International, Plan International, Save the Children and UNICEF.

With a new grant of 750,000 USD to implement Aflatot and scale up the Aflatoun programme in Indonesia for 3 years, Childfund Indonesia made a big contribution to the achievement of the Aflatoun Network goal for 2020 to reach 20 million children worldwide.

With the help of ChildFund Korea in 2016, the organisation began implementing a new project called “ACTIVE” (Adolescent Confident in Thinking, Value in Life and Empowered) which incorporates the Aflatoun curriculum on life-skills and financial education. The project aims to teach the participants basic business skills and organisational development—enabling them to discover innovative ways to generate income.
