LIFE PROJECT CENTERS
LIFE PROJECT CENTER - CILINCING
Cilincing, in the northeast of the city and near the port, is one of the poorest areas of Jakarta, polluted and isolated. Young people live in illegal housing, have a low level of education and remain in poverty due to limited access to decent work. The consumption of unclean water causes serious health problems. LP4Y has decided to create an micro-economic activity called Source of Life, around water treatment and delivery. The service is offered at low cost, making it accessible to those living in slums near the center. The dynamic teams of Youth educate the local community, especially in schools, about the importance of drinking filtered water. Matakita, the second program offers reasonably-priced reading glasses to people who can not afford city prices.
