Press Release Cheerity: Cheerful Charity!

The youth as the future generation is the next leader in the future. The better quality of youth, the greater its country. Investing in youth and children education is the only way to build the better quality of youth and their future.




Therefore, to actualize the great country we need a great quality of the youth. In fact, there are still great number of youth and children that don’t have proper facilities especially in education. In 2015, social minister said that 4,1 million children was being displaced. Displaced children were interpreted by the children who did not get any chances in education and proper life.

In this special occasion, Internee IFSA LC UGM was holding Cheerity: Cheerful Charity at Panti Asuhan Islam Putra on Monday, 28 November 2016. This event’s goal is to share happiness and motivate the children to chase their dream.
