OUR HISTORY
Ribbon of Love was established in March 2007. It started as an immediate response to the devastating shortage of food supply that occurred in the eastern region of Indonesia. We found shocking reports on child deaths in East Nusa Tenggara (NTT) province, due to malnutrition. The immediate cause was identified to be the prolonged dry season which caused crops failure and poverty.

Poverty has been an unsolved problem for many decades in NTT, as well as in many other areas in Indonesia. While the parents are struggling with the economy in such a situation, children’s welfare and education are getting forgotten. We believe that education, especially for the young generation, is of the utmost importance for eradicating poverty. These facts gave us a wake-up call to support the development of children in marginalised communities all across Indonesia.
