Bahtera Kasih is a Protestant based orphanage run by Bahtera Kasih Foundation, located in a small village with majority muslim residence in
suburban or Semarang city. There are approximately 50 children and more than 50% of the children are under 10 years old. The orphanage has their own
kindergarten called Garuda Jaya where all the children study and the kindergarten is also open for public. Since early age, the children are taught to
care with others as well as independent by cleaning and tidy up their own room and the orphanage e.g. folding clothes, washing clothes, sweeping the floor,
taking shower, etc. The kids are so lovely and they are so excited everytime there are new volunteers coming in the orphanage.
