  • Jakarta Street Kids Global Concern

    Jakarta Street Kids Global Concern (JSKGC) is a fundraising organization based in United World College of South East Asia. Almost entirely student run and managed, every year it manages to raise over $15,000 dollars to support impoverished children in Jakarta.

     

    Our Global Concern is focused on helping under privileged children living in Indonesia, especially those who have been abandoned by their parents and forced to live on the streets. We aim to raise awareness of their situations and raise funds to support education and community initiatives.

     

    Our goal is to both create a comfortable learning environment for these children, but also to give them the necessary groundings to progress on in the latter stages of their life.

  • XS Project

    XSProject is a World Fair Trade Organization that we collaborate with by selling their products at major events. The products are all environmentally friendly, made from recycled materials such as used tires and empy laundry detergent packs! The money raised from selling these products goes towards helping support the trashpickers' community in the slums of Jakarta by providing an education for the children and a steady income for their families. If you are interested in learning more about them or maybe even donating some waste materials, please check out their website by clicking on the link below!

  • Fundraisers 

    Life Without Luxury

    Life Without Luxury is an annual event conducted with the Grade 6s as part of their Development unit. It gave the students a small window into a world without luxuries as simple as an iced tea, let alone basic necessities such as clean, running water.

     

    It involved giving up one luxury item that we would usually spend more than 1 dollar on, for just one week. The money that we would usually spend on this luxury was then donated to Jakarta Street Kids. 

    Are You Smarter Than a Green Shirt?

    For the first time this year, JSK held 'Are You Smarter Than a Green Shirt?' This event entailed pitting teachers against the very students they teach in a battle of wits and intelligence. There were two teacher teams and two Middle School teams. In the end, there was only one winner and it was 'Team We Teach Real Subjects' and indeed they do! However, we hope to see 'Carter's Crew' next year as they try to redeem themselves and steal back the trophy. 

     

    Before we started the event, there was a bake sale with yummy home-baked goods. We also gave a short presentation on what we do as a GC to raise awareness on where the money raised was going. All in all, it was a successful night!

    Community Fair

    Every year, UWCSEA puts on a great Community Fair, with lots of fun fair activities and merchandise, with all proceeds going to the Global Concerns Program. 

     

    Every year, JSKGC runs several stalls that never fail to attract a crowd! We run a Dunk Tank, a Nerf Gun targets stall, a polaroid booth, where people can have their lovely pictures taken, and last but not least, the XS project stall, where we sell all the latest XS project merchandise!

     

    This year's Community Fair was without a doubt, the best we've had yet, and is undoubtedly one of our biggest fundaisers of the year. 

    UN Night

    Every October, UWCSEA celebrates UN Day with an array of dances from around the world as well as food stalls lots of different nations.

     

    And every year, JSK takes on the daunting task of organising the Indonesian Food Stall. We sell lots of traditional foods including delicious barbequed satay!

  • Project Week 2012 at Cipanas YUM Village

    In March 2012, four of UWCSEA's Grade 11 students visited one of our sponsored projects at the YUM Cipanas Village. They spent a week there, teaching and learning about the ongoing organic farming project. It was a beneficial experience for both YUM and our students as it served to strengthen our bonds with the projects we're involved in.

    Weekend Trip to Sekolah Bisa

    In March 2012, five G10 students visited Sekolah Bisa for a day to see the progress that was being made and how the funds given were being used. They spent the day with the children creating storybooks, complete with illustrations and original ideas.

    Project Week 2013 to Sekolah Bisa

    In March 2013 four Grade 11 students visitied Sekolah Bisa for a week. There they taught maths and English and engaged with the children at the school in various fun activities. They also joined in on a Bintang Bisa training session and spent a day at a field playing futsal and having a picnic. At the end of the week, they also visited some of the children's homes and began to truly understand the reason why we're helping these children. It is trips like this, organised and paid for by the UWCSEA students themselves that really allow JSKGC to become not just a fundraising organisation, but an organisation that cares.

  • YUM: Vocational Training Centre

    The funding provided by UWCSEA was able to help provide 125 students in the Cipanas area with vocational training classes for one term (three months). There were five different classes: English, Computer Skills, Sewing, Job Seeking and Hospitality. The classes are aimed at older kids with the hopes that it will create opportunites in the future.

     

    We are proud to say that 95% of the students were able to graduate from this program and through the generous donations of others, the program is able to continue.

    New Football Boots for Bintang Bisa!

    As a reward for practising hard all year and in preparation for the football league they participated in, we decided to treat the kids to a pair of new football boots each as well as some new football socks. 

    New Uniforms for Sekolah Bisa Students

    In March 2013, JSK sent over some funds to buy the 25 SB students some new school uniforms: maroon coloured polo shirts.
