YAYASAN USAHA MULIA
Yayasan Usaha Mulia (YUM) – Foundation for Noble Work is a non-for-profit organization that works to improve the quality of life of the poor in Indonesia. Indonesia has seen widespread development, but with the fourth largest population in the world, there are still many areas where there is a severe lack of proper health, education and community services. Millions of families continue to live below the poverty line, surviving on less than two dollars a day. YUM has worked for more than four decades in this vast archipelago to support communities, to give them hope and a way out of the cycle of poverty.
Our years of experience working in Indonesia has led to a deep understanding of the needs of these communities and helped us build strong relationships with the people we serve as well as our partners and institutions.
Summary/ Provide Skills for Indonesian Unemployed Youth
A World Bank study found that close to 60 percent of Indonesian youth are unemployed; this is the case in Yayasan Usaha Mulia’s project area of Cipanas, West Java. That is why a Vocational Training Center (VTC) was established in order for youths to learn skills that would increase their chances of gaining employment. So far, 75 percent of our alumni have found jobs. Help us keep the VTC going and help more than 300 disadvantaged youths per year find employment.
The unemployment rate in Cipanas for youths aged 16 to 24 is over 60%. The greatest challenges to gaining employment in this area are a lack of skills and a lack of access to employment opportunities. The Vocational Training Center was designed in order to enable more than 300 youths per year to learn valuable skills that will increase their chances of gaining employment in a highly competitive job market.
