Commitment by

Yayasan Usaha Mulia/Foundation for Noble Work

In 2011, Yayasan Usaha Mulia (YUM) committed to reducing poverty through job creation in YUM's working area of Central Kalimantan, Indonesia through technical training, partnership with local companies, and micro-business loan opportunities. Over the next four years, YUM will conduct a survey of human resource needs of large companies established in Central Kalimantan, map local production and consumption, establish a Vocational and Technical Training Center (VTTC), and distribute 300 micro loans for those who cannot be absorbed into the workforce and would like to start and grow their own small business. The training center will educate 600 individuals for in-demand trades such as plumbing, motor cycle mechanics, and repair of mobile phones and small electronics.
