We are proud to announce that a project funded by our social impact initiative RYTHM Foundation in partnership with the ASA Foundation in Indonesia, has just won Gold at the recent 2021 Indonesian SDGs Award (ISDA).

In 2019, RYTHM Foundation partnered with ASA Foundation to fund and support a three-year sports-based social intervention programme. The programme was designed to focus on the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal 4 (Quality Education) by improving the quality of education for vulnerable youth and adults in Indonesia.

The project kicked off with a three-day training workshop in Tangerang, Banten, Indonesia, for local teachers to deliver effective sports-based education development and empowerment programmes to vulnerable youth. Modules included topics like health, hygiene, life skills and gender equality.

These trained teachers were then placed in junior high schools across Tangerang to help transform the lives of over 10,000 school children by teaching them life skills and good values to help them become responsible adults. Throughout the three years, ASA Foundation conducted weekly mentorship and evaluation sessions to monitor the teachers’ progress and teaching outcomes.

ASA Foundation is an education and empowerment focused NGO in Indonesia that strives to help vulnerable youth through sustainable social impact programmes through schools and community-based projects.

Previously, RYTHM Foundation partnered with ASA Foundation to deliver a successful 12-month inclusive women empowerment and education development project across Subang, West Java, Indonesia; the project reached 30 female schoolteachers and over 5,000 youth with and without disabilities.
