This is certainly a challenge for Indonesia with the unavailability of definite jobs in our country. Causing them to choose to work out of Indonesia because the offer and income are considered more profitable.
Away from family and not having the opportunity to return to Indonesia as they wish because of the consequences of working in the industry, they have to bet for survival, including the ability to manage income and make all of their hard work become a bigger thing. This is where we come to share the enthusiasm, motivation, and stories of Indonesia's experience and current situation in terms of managing and building an entrepreneurship spirit so that their hard work pays off and is not just wasted.
In this case, building the character of human resources and developing an entrepreneurial spirit, we will provide migrant workers with activities that will be packaged in the form of talkshows and discussions with the theme "Being an entrepreneur even in a Foreign Country". This kind of activity is in line with the mission of our volunteers. IYOULFOC participants will share with our migrant worker brothers and do motivational and inspiring activities.
