Your contribution will help Latter-day Saint children and young adults in Indonesia overcome financial barriers to obtaining quality education. Surplus funding will be made available to children from other religious groups. As little as $15 per month will sustain a child through primary and secondary education.
Because JFI is an all-volunteer organization, nearly all of the money donated goes to payment of educational expenses. Students assisted by JFI apply and are officially accepted into an educational program before aid is provided. JFI pays the student expenses directly.
The Jaredita Foundation is committed to helping young people in Indonesia build a better future for themselves and their families by providing financial assistance that allows them to achieve their educational goals.
The generous hearts of donors and volunteers make this dream a reality.
The Jaredita Foundation Inc (JFI) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization named in honor of Jaredita–beloved daughter of Steffi and Subandriyo. She passed away in 2007 after one year of schooling at BYU-Hawaii and just weeks before she planned to enter BYU-Provo. Jaredita had a love of learning and a love for the children of Indonesia.
The purpose of JFI is to help Latter-day Saint children and young adults get an education. With the help of in-country facilitators (all are returned missionaries), children who are not able to attend school because their families cannot afford tuition, books and uniforms (about $11-15 per month) will be offered financial assistance to pay for primary and secondary schooling.
Payments are made directly to the schools. In most instances the fund will pay for half of the school cost with the family paying the other half.
Since educational loans are not available in Indonesia, JFI will also offer tuition assistance for qualified Latter-day Saint young adults to obtain post secondary school training. JFI loan recipients are expected to pay back into the fund once they have graduated and obtained work.
Donors will be sent a yearly report of how the funds were used. We encourage donors to consider arranging monthly direct deposits from their bank into the JFI bank account. This will guarantee a more constant supply of funds.
