CERDAS Foundation has twin missions of providing financial aid for education to underprivileged children and offering relief assistance in the event of a natural disaster or national emergency in Indonesia.
CERDAS Foundation was established in 2007 in Seattle, WA. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization registered in the State of Washington. CERDAS is a community-powered organization driven by a vision of a world where children have equal access to education, regardless of their ethnic, religious, social, political or economic backgrounds. The name CERDAS is Indonesian for "intelligent" and is used to describe a sharp mind. It reflects the inspiration behind the organization - intelligent young minds that represent our hopes of a better tomorrow.
We have twin missions of providing financial aid for education to underprivileged children and offering relief assistance in the event of a natural disaster or national emergency in Indonesia. We believe that education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty. We strive to provide children access to education early in their lives through a scholarship program for basic education. To increase the likelihood of success and ensure sustainability, we build partnerships with individuals and organizations in the local communities where the children live who share a similar mission.
CERDAS is a volunteer-based organization. None of our officers or members receives compensation for their work. Every dollar of all financial contributions goes to our activities and scholarship program, since there is no paid staff and no fixed costs like rent. This allows us to keep our overheads very low.
