Red Nose Foundation (Yayasan Hidung Merah) is a nonprofit arts and education organization active in Jakarta, Indonesia. Established in 2008, RNF works at the grass roots level, predominately within two village communities in Jakarta: Cilincing, in North Jakarta, and Bintaro Lama, in South Jakarta. Since it was established, the foundation has grown in size and capacity, and it continues to grow.
Red Nose Foundation’s (RNF) mission is to support the educational and personal development of children living in underprivileged circumstances, and to promote the empowerment of youth through arts while assisting them to become positive contributors to society. The foundation strives to be the pioneering creative force behind education advocacy and rehabilitation. Red Nose Foundation offers a safe place for children to explore, experiment and be educated.
