Yayasan Emmanuel

Relationship with Hotel(s): Grand Hyatt Jakarta has been consistently participating in Emmanuel’s Food Rescue Program for more than 15 years. The property has arranged for prepared food from their pastry kitchen to be distributed to hungry and malnourished people living in scavenger communities in and around Jakarta. An average of 6-8 kg of food is delivered to diverse communities from the hotel daily. The hotel also works with the Emmanuel Foundation to hire people with disabilities.

NGO mission: Yayasan Emmanuel’s mission is to be a channel of compassion and care for the disadvantaged, regardless of their religion, ethnicity, or background.

Grant purpose:
Under-resourced youth living in marginalized rural areas in Indonesia lack the experience, skills, knowledge, and opportunities to acquire access to formal and/or hospitality education. In addition, they have limited exposure or access to the hospitality sector, on-the-job training, and apprenticeships. In response to these issues and needs, Yayasan Emmanuel will use its Hyatt Community Grant to provide access to formal education through scholarships for high school students in remote rural communities, along with online and offline hospitality education and training in collaboration with Hyatt and a renowned hospitality university.

The program will offer 16 workshops on hospitality, two workshops on leadership, and eight workshops for youth with special needs and disabilities. After completion of online-offline hospitality education, the youth will receive on the job training with Hyatt. Participants will receive hands-on learning that will help them learn and practice hospitality skills over a six-month period. A 12-month apprenticeship opportunity will then be available for youth who have completed the on-the-job training.


Yayasan Emmanuel aims to reach 78 under-served youth with the program. The goal is for the youth to not only gain valuable knowledge and experience, but also tangible skills that will help them obtain jobs in the hospitality industry. These jobs in turn will help improve their economic futures.
