XSProject funds three major programs to support Jakarta’s trash picker families.
We work to improve the quality of life for the 100+ families who live at Jakarta’s Cirendeu open garbage dump. We provide medical, dental and vision care, build homes, deliver nutritional meals, and help families through difficulties with micro-loans.
We provide education for trash picker’s children. There are currently 91 children enrolled in our XSEducation program and three in our XSCollege Scholarship program. Breaking the generational cycle of picking trash through education is our primary mission.
Cirendeu Handicrafts is a vocational program that teaches young mothers and women trash pickers how to earn money through sewing and handicrafts. We provide business training and micro-loans to get them started. These women learn skills that give them the ability to earn their own money, launch their own businesses, bring additional income their families while gaining self-esteem and respect.
XSProject is a Texas non-profit corporation. Contributions are tax-deductible for US citizens.
