Indonesia: 24 June 2007 – For the third year in a row, RYTHM Foundation has brought inspiration and hope to the victims of the December 2004 Asian Tsunami by providing scholarships to Acehnese students.Aceh and Yogyakarta, Indonesia, were revisited by RYTHM Foundation Trustee Mr Bernhard Mayer, QuestNet Indonesia Business Development Manager Ms Jeanny The, and Corporate Communications Manager Ms Wita Dahlan, late this month.
Continuing an initiative that begun shortly following the devastating Tsunami – in which RYTHM Foundation has provided year-long scholarships to hundreds of needy students of the affected regions – this year’s recipients were Islamic boarding school, Pesantren Markaz Al-Ishlah Al Aziziyah; SDN51, a public elementary school; and six students from two universities, all located in Banda Aceh.
The Foundation delivered scholarship funds and donations such as computers, printers, tables and sewing machines. It was the third year of the scholarship programme.
From Aceh, the RYTHM Foundation team continued on to Bantul, Yogyakarta, to inaugurate the second building of the TK Masyithoh Kindergarten, which is funded by RYTHM Foundation.
