The children

The youngest child is 9 years old and the oldest is 19. Because everybody helps each other in and around the house, we are able to run the orphanage with a small group of people. From the start, the children have helped with the establishment of our home, as well as with the care for the garden and animals. This has not only increased their involvement, but has also made this house into their home. Therefore, in request of the children, we have decided to change the name from Kindertehuis Bukit Lawang to Family House Bukit Lawang.
