"I believe the children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way. Show them all the beauty they possess inside. Give them a sense of pride to make it easier. Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be." - Whitney Houston, Greatest Love Of All
This verse probably best encapsulates the mission of Inspiration Factory founded by Georges Hilaul and Jenny Tjoa with the key objective of helping underprivileged children in Indonesia. Every Sunday morning, IF would engage children from impoverished families through structured activities and classes facilitated by volunteers. It has always been a personal aspiration to use journalistic photography for philanthropic purposes, so I jumped at the opportunity when I was invited by a friend to document an English class that she was voluntering at. I offered to contribute my photographs to IF for their marketing platforms. This album provides a very brief glimpse into the program and what IF does for the children. I got to witness first hand the incredibly bright spirits that the children embody and I was tremendously inspired by the enthusiastic and passionate volunteers.
