OUR story

The Learning Farm was established in 2005 by co-founders Mee Kim and Gouri Mirpuri to address the lack of skills, opportunities, and hope among vulnerable youth.

 

Lacking education, skills and support these vulnerable youths are at risk of being trapped in a cycle of poverty, crime, drugs and HIV/AIDS.

We want to

  • Reduce the number of vulnerable youths in Indonesia

  • Minimise environmental degradation

  • Improve an individual's employability skills

  • Reduce rural-urban migration

  • Ensure food security

OUR youth

The Learning Farm youth, whose ages range from 17 to 24, come from diverse backgrounds from the streets of cities such as DKI Jakarta, Ambon, Bogor and Bandung plus regions like West Java, Timor and Sulawesi.

The majority of these young people come to The Learning Farm through a referral system from other organizations. Some of The Learning Farm's students are illiterate, while others have completed high school. Many lack the security of a family unit, while others come from single-parent or impoverished households. Some have been in the big city doing menial jobs, while others have never been away from their villages.
