For a refugee living in urban Jakarta, distance poses a great challenge. To travel from one place to another always requires a lot of time, for the distances are vast in this city of 12 million, and traffic is usually bad. It's particularly challenging for refugees, most of whom have very limited financial resources. Using cheaper public transportation instead of a taxi might mean changing buses several times and traveling two hours or more - one way. All of which impacts refugees' ability to engage in activities at the CWS Refugee Center. Located in central Jakarta, the CWS Refugee Center offers various training and education programs such as language classes (English and Indonesian), computer classes, handicraft classes and various other activities.
