Yayasan Hidung Merah is an arts and education outreach program based in Indonesia’s capital city, Jakarta. Our mission is to empower Indonesia’s underprivileged youth through the use of circus and other arts, as well as to support the kids’ traditional and non-traditional educations.
Hidung Merah’s organization is made up of four main programs. All four programs are aimed and focused towards the continued support and development of education for Indonesia’s underprivileged children.

This program includes weekly arts(mainly circus, but not limited to), informal education classes, tutoring sessions, mentoring and guidance and full or partial scholarships for the children’s traditional schooling.
