Project Child Indonesia (PCI) was founded on the use and the promotion of volunteering and engaging with volunteers. As Indonesia’s wealth increases, PCI aims to foster an increase in interest about volunteering for the citizens of Indonesia, guided by the belief that everyone can help and make a positive change. PCI’s work is evidence that low-cost programs with direct positive impact are achievable through the help of volunteers. Volunteerism is something PCI continues to prioritize.
Such engagement gives citizens of Indonesia ownership of their own improvement and capacity to break the cycle of poverty countrywide. Project Child also believes that if it can inspire passion to volunteer and create awareness for the country’s citizens, whether through training, working engagement, or simply providing information, then it can be part of a movement that will assist and inspire a future generation of volunteers working to improve the lives of everyone within Indonesia and abroad.
We are currently seeking new volunteers who share the same passion and driven to change lives through our projects. The Volunteering Program provides an opportunity to combine your education with hands-on working experience in our specialized field; Practical Health, Environment and Disaster Education, Creating Holistic Learning Experience, Technology Education, and Volunteer Engagement.
