MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Based in Jakarta, Indonesia, XSProject is a non-profit organization that works to improve the lives of poor families living in Jakarta’s trash picker communities.
Access to a reasonable standard of education from an early age is critical to helping children break free from a life of picking trash and poverty. The earlier they begin their education, the better their chances of completing school and finding meaningful work as young adults. The XSEducation Scholarship program caters to trash picker’s children living in the Cirendeu community. Every child that enters the program will receive at least 12 years of schooling with some even completing college, and it’s all paid for by XSProject. The scholarship also includes books, school supplies and uniforms.
