GEKKO is a youth movement collaborating with GK Indonesia foundation to help empower impoverished communities so that they become sustainable.
GEKKO’s first initiative in 2020 helped a GK community to earn additional income and to create awareness about the Covid pandemic with families in the community designing and producing face masks and tshirts which GEKKO then sold to families and friends.
With students having to shift to online schooling but lacking access to wifi connection, GEKKO raised funds to build wifi learning centers in the communities.
These learning centers are continuously being built-17 learning centers in several GK communities have been built so far-and are being upgraded so that they serve the learning and training needs not only of children and youth but adults too.
The latest GEKKO projects are sustainable farming, micro enterprise for women, youth development program and facilities, bridging the digital divide, upskilling the women for better employment opportunities.
