Our major concern is to support children, youth and the less fortunate to the best of our possibility. Education and training, health, support to families and institutions and assisting people with mental and physical disabilities are our priorities.
Our funds derive from donations from private sponsors and companies. The Brücke community also raises a major part of the funds through activities. As all active Brücke-supporters work voluntarily, there are hardly any overhead costs. The social commitment team of "Die Brücke" stays in touch with the projects and makes sure that the earmarked funds are used in line with Brücke principles.
Here is a selection of our projects:
Proyek Masa Depan (PMD) - Project Future
In this project DIE BRÜCKE supports university students from financially weak families, who would not be able to finish their studies without our support. Our project is based on reciprocity. While DIE BRÜCKE supports the Indonesian students financially, the students give their time and effort to support other social projects of our association. Since its founding in 1998, more than 90 students have successfully graduated!
Foundation Yay. Cipta Mandiri (YCM)
YCM was founded in 2002 and offers free education and training programs for 160 children/youth. It conveys tolerance, self-assuredness and participants are taught to think and act independently. With the help of these skills, the foundation seeks to improve living standards of the students permanently.
DIE BRÜCKE bears the expenses for the salary of one computer teacher and one sewing teacher.
