Siti: I think Riri is the most interesting orphan I have ever known. She's not the oldest of all the children there, but she is very mature. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a chance to talk to her personally. Can you tell me how she has come to the orphan home?
Dayu: Well, I don’t know much about her either, because I have met her only three times. What I know is that she was an only child. Her father died when she was a baby, and her mother eight years ago. She’s been an orphan for eight years, but she’s lived in the orphanage for only six years now.
Udin: Why doesn’t she live with her grandparents?
Dayu: They both have passed away. Her grandfather died even before she was born, and her grandmother died six years ago.
Beni: Does she not have any uncles or aunts to take care of her?
Dayu: She has an uncle, her mother’s brother. Two months after her grandmother’s death he sent Riri to the orphanage.
Lina: Why doesn’t she live with him instead?
Dayu: No, his house is very small. He’s a scavenger, and he has twelve children. He has put Riri there so that she can get better care and she can also go to a good school.
Siti: Does he often visit her?
Dayu: Yes, her uncle and his family have visited her a lot of times. They routinely visit her once a month.
Udin: It must be sad to be an orphan and live in an orphan home.
Dayu: Riri is sad to be an orphan, but she’s not a gloomy kid, you know. As you see, she is a cheerful and friendly girl. She has even shown her great care for other needy children like her.
Siti: What do you mean?
Dayu: Early last year, the orphanage started a charity group. It consists of all the orphans there who already sit in senior and junior high schools. She has participated very actively in the group’s activities. They have made handicrafts and sold them. They have used the profit to help street children and poor families. The program has run for almost two years now.
Beni: Wow! That’s amazing. I’ve never thought of that before. I thought that the kids in orphan homes were sad kids who needed our help. But they help other people instead.
Edo: What have they done for street children?
Dayu: They have done one thing for street children and one thing for poor families. To celebrate the 15th birthday of the orphanage, they gave thirty street children twenty thousand rupiahs each. Early this month they went to some poor families in the neighbourhood and gave each family a gift containing sugar,cooking oil, and rice.
