ISCO’s sponsored areas are selected through a careful field survey to make sure that it targets the right needy areas.
A typical ISCO’s sponsored area will have the following characteristics:

  • Slum and urban areas
  • Approximate population of 500 families within the area
  • Potential street children, neglected children and/or potential child labor
  • Income level of below Rp 300.000/month for family with more than 2 children
