What Does YPHPapua do in 8 Villages?

Quality Christian Education by Sekolah Lentera Harapan

Bringing education to the most remote areas of Papua; educating the whole person; academically, socially, physically, spiritually--Preparing the student in all dimension for life and work. Reading and writing both in their local dialect and in Bahasa Indonesia, reminding them of their identity and responsibility as Indonesians to take part in building this country. They are the next generation of educated Papuan that we pray will glorify God according to His will.

Health Care System by Siloam Clinic

Education needs to walk hand in hand with health care. The doctors and nurses at Siloam Clinics in Papua serve by educating the local people on hygiene and first aid, implementing immunization programs, treat hundreds of patients everyday and give them medicine, do minor surgical procedures, and do visitations to nearby villages that do not have access to healthcare. To many people, these Siloam Clinics are the first from of healthcare they have ever received.

Electricity by Solar panel or Hydropower

Government's electricity does not reach these villages. Without solar panels or hydropower, no activities can be performed in school and clinic pas sunset, and none of the medical equipments can work. Electricity allows for lights as well as internet connection, significantly improving productivity.

Internet Connection by VSAT

None of the comercial broadband provides in Indonesia reach this villages in Papua's mountaineous region. Yayasan Pendidikan Harapan Papua work together with First Media to provide internet through VSAT(Very Small Apperture Terminal). Internet connection allows the medical staff to file reports, seek guidance, and arrange for medivac, allow teachers to search fo teaching resources and allows all staff to communicate with their families.

Agriculture and Animal Farming

Vegatable farm, chicken farm, and fish ponds are developed, with hope that students will be able to consume these proteins on a regular basis.
