  • Helping Build Libraries in Impoverished Areas of Indonesia Part of AUSCI’s Cerdas Bang! Program menCerdaskan Bangsa
  • Background
    • In 2008, USC faculty Dr. James Owens started WIJABA, the World Is Just A Book Away non-profit organization.
    • WIJABA’s mission is to provide children access to books, in impoverished areas around the globe.
    • The AUSCI committee joined in the cause, since there is a REAL need for libraries in Indonesia (we received reports that some children were learning to read, by finding instruction manuals of VCD player found in garbage dumps).
  • The 2009 USC Charity Ball
    • Our inaugural Ball was held on 1 April 2009 at the Grand Hyatt Jakarta
      • Godfather Theme
      • 500 attendees (50% of which were non-alumni)
      • Netted 350 jt
      • 100% of which was donated to WIJABA, to help build libraries in Sidoarjo, West Java
  • 2009 USC Charity Ball’s Results
    • Working with WIJABA, we helped build:
      • 21 libraries in various primary schools (SD) in Sidoarjo
      • 2 units of Mobile Libraries circling the villages around Sidoarjo
    • IMPACT = approximately 10,000 school children in 50 schools now have access to 12,000 books within their perimeter.
