Founded in 1975.
Having the benefit of 25 years experience, YUM has now become a charitable foundation with various humanitarian activities and renders services such as : Health : Clinics at Pejompongan and Cipanas that mostly provide services for TB patients and those suffering from other illnesses, Education : Preparatory schools (Street Children project), in Cipulir and Simpruk Children’s Village in Cipanas (boarding schools for children who mostly come from poor families), Community Development : KUU-Brebes, and a Home for the Elderly
Wasjanto an Ex-Street-Kid from YUM’s preparatory school, is one of the success stories from YUM’s projects. Now he is not only a Community Development Coordinator in his village (Brebes, Central Java), but as a result of his dedication in managing this project, he has been sent to Japan for one year for social welfare training, sponsored by the Japanese Council of Social Welfare.
A figure like Wasjanto, for YUM is not only
a token of YUM’s ability to take its students to successful
futures, but can exemplify how YUM has carried out its projects in an integrated
and sustainable fashion.

|CIPANAS CHILDREN’s VILLAGE
How many orphans lose the rights that are freely available to other normal children - suffering from the loss of parents, hunger, dropping out of school, lack of love, an uncertain future life, and having to face all this every day of their lives ?
Fortunately none of this is any longer true for the children who live in the Cipanas Children’s Village (DAA). Although they are not living with their parents, their proper rights are met , as stated in the UN’s Conventions on Children Rights. They are even taken to a bright future.
DAA was established in 1976, located in Kampung Sindang Layung, Cibadak, Cianjur, West Java on a 2000m2 plot. This location now accommodates 53 children.
Pak Kardjono (Project Manager) describing DAA’s activities says:
“Every human being wherever they are , whoever are they are , within every
minute, hour, day, month and year must have change. In DAA, we do
our best to lead our children in a positive direction through various
extra curricular activities, such as farming, fishery, cattle breeding,
The children here (in Cipanas) seem to have found again a brighter future life. Many of their friends outside the “Children’s Village “ are waiting for their turn to get the same facilities available to those in the Cipanas Children’s Village. Needless to say, to continue to help them we of course need additional help and support and we welcome all those who feel moved to share with us the burden of financing their needs.

PAMULANG HOME FOR THE ELDERLY
YUM started to care for the elderly people in 1980 on a 2.5 ha. plot of land in Pamulang, West Jakarta, with facilities such as a Clinic/Health Centre , laboratory, the services of a specialist physician, a general practicioner, psychiatrist, visiting specialists.
The commitment to help the elderly and render other social humanitarian activities for their needs is firmly embedded in the hearts of the management team there and for them our participation gives meaning, no matter how small it is.
CIPULIR PREPARATORY SCHOOL
YUM started to help these street children in 1979
with the help of Hasijah Rosevelt, an American anthropologist .
From the experienced gained YUM was led to establish its Preparatory
school for street children.
Each year the Cipulir preparatory school accommodates around 70 street children or children of garbage scavengers.
Pak Sutardi (25 years old ) is one of the three teachers who routinely and persistently helps his young charges, is leaving for Japan for one year’s welfare skills training course sponsored by the Japanese Council of Social Welfare.
In cooperation with local sponsorships from CityBank and Astra Insurance now the Cipulir Preparatory School has been extended to a new Preparatory facility in Kampung Rawa Simpruk, Kebayoran Lama in West Jakarta.
Experts consider our preparatory school approach is the most strategic way to prepare children to be sent back to a normal school,.

KUU BREBES (COMMUNICATION DEVELOPMENT
PROJECT) – BREBES, CENTRAL JAVA.
Various improvements to public facilities such as family sanitation,
clean drinking water, health clinic services, and small-scale trade
enterprises through vocational training support have taught the people
here to solve their own problems.
The upcoming program for YUM is to build a planned Community
Centre Project based in Grinting. For this, BMZ-SDG has appointed an independent
institute, to carry out a feasibility study.
