This week’s Random Act of Kid-ness comes all the way from Indonesia! Two girls named Fara Shabrina Muntu and Farah Amalia started their own nonprofit called YOUTH!, which stands for Young United Through Humanity! From their website:
What’s our cause? A better community. [Whether] its through promoting children’s rights, fighting poverty, raising awareness of the environment, working for gender equality, and or many more. Again, we strive to unite the youths.
YOUTH!’s first project in May 2011 was called Buku Untuk Mereka, meaning “Books for Them.” During this project, the girls collected 1,684 books for kids in Kaimana, West Papua (far East of Indonesia). Wow!
As always, if you have suggestions for future random acts, please let us know!
