Few Indonesian children in poor rural areas attend preschool, and primary school dropout rates are high. Malnutrition, poor health and a lack of stimulation are also affecting children's development.
In partnership with parents, caregivers and government, we're making sure children are raised in nurturing and stimulating environments, and are healthy and prepared for school. Simple initiatives such as producing locally made play and learning materials, are supporting children's successful transition to primary school. We're also improving early learning centres and working with parenting groups so mothers and fathers can learn about effective parenting skills and child nutrition.
