Our Role

Ever since YCAB Foundation was established in 1999 in Jakarta, Indonesia, YCAB has committed to focus on youth development by giving them hope and opportunity. We believe in enabling youths to be independent as one of the keys to break the poverty cycle. We invest in our youths in three different sectors: health, education, and economic empowerment.

For this reason, YCAB Foundation has three pillars: Healthy Lifestyle Promotion or HeLP, House of Learning and Development or HoLD, and Hands-on Operation for Entrepreneurship/Economic or HOpE. Through these programs, YCAB is able to reach out and empower youths by addressing risky behaviors, establishing learning centres, and providing microloans to low-incomed women entrepreneurs.

Our Indonesian team works closely with local schools, organizations, communities, and the government. Comprised of local Indonesians, our team speaks the language and understands the issues at hand.
