About Us

Pour les Enfants de la Rue (PER), a French/Indonesian social welfare association, aims to improve the daily life and education of street children, orphans, and children/young adults from marginalized families living in Jakarta, in order to create a better and sustainable future. Since its creation in 2000, PER has been progressively expanding its activities from initially supporting street children to working with centers caring for disadvantaged children and youth living in the greater Jakarta area. Beneficiaries currently receiving assistance from PER now include some 250 children, aged 3 months to 22 years, who are at a disadvantage due to socio-economic circumstances or physical disabilities.

In order to effectively help children, PER has developed two main projects

Support of the Centers Currently, PERJakarta works with 5 Centers for disadvantaged children, by providing financial assistance for daily operational needs of the centers and overseeing sport, cultural and educative activities for the children.

Sponsoring of students PER Jakarta provides scholarships and financial assistance for promising students coming from disadvantaged families. PER currently provides funds for the education of 2 young women and 3 young men at the university level. PER hopes to include additional students for the coming academic years.

PER also keeps an emergency fund at hand for special circumstances affecting children of the centres or sponsored students.
