Background of Tasik Children's Foundation
A few years ago an Indonesian regional newspaper reported about a boy who committed suicide after he was taken from school. His parents could no longer afford to pay 3 Euros of monthly school fees. This drama was the start of the Tasik Children’s Foundation (TCF). Since 2003, the TCF sponsors children in need in Tasikmalaya, South-West Java Indonesia, with an annual drop out percentage of over 20%, TCF tries to keep children at school as long as possible.

Projects of Tasik Children's Foundations
Refurbishment of Schools:
The refurbishment of schools is done in a gotong royong spirit: together with the school board, parents and the local community. Funding is provided in such a way that the school will always participate in a small part of the funding. For example, should the refurbishment cost 30 million rupiah, TCF will pay the 20 million to 25 million and the rest comes from the school board and the local community. This way, the community, parents and the school board would also take responsibility in order to create ownership over the school.
