Indonesian Orphanage
 
Since 2010, Kendall Court Trust, through its Jakarta office, has been providing scholarships to seven children from three orphanages located in Jakarta, namely Panti Asuhan Dorkas ("Dorkas"), Panti Asuhan Bersinar Bagi Bangsa ("Bersinar"), and Panti Asuhan Abigail ("Abigail"). The selection process was started in the first half of 2010 when we visited several orphanages and tried to understand their financial conditions. We met and interviewed the caretakers of the orphanages and also interacted with the kids before we finally decided to support the three orphanages mentioned above. From the many kids being proposed by the three orphanages, we selected seven based on the merit of their academic track records, and in accordance with our financial planning for this program considering our seed funding.

Hana Christiani Purba, Esther, and Gloria S.N. Thalea are the three kids from Dorkas to whom we awarded scholarships. Hana and Gloria were in grade 3 (primary school) when we started the program. Hana is now in grade 5 (primary school), while Gloria has been withdrawn from our program as proposed by Dorkas, due to the foster parent adoption program. Gloria has been replaced by Viviana who is now in grade 8 (junior high school). Esther was in grade 9 (junior high school) when we first started, and she is now in grade 11 (vocational school) taking accounting as her major.

At Abigail, we are supporting Yoshua Varachsian, Rarketha, and Trivena for their last three school years. They are in grade 9 (junior high school), grade 10 (senior high school), and grade 11 (senior high school) respectively. At Bersinar, our scholar is Renatha Apriana ; she is currently attending grade 12 (senior high school).
