Smart Indonesia Card (KIP) guarantees and ensures that all school-aged children from disadvantaged families receieve financial assistance for education up to the completion of high school/vocational school.
All children of school going age (6–21 years old) whose families are part of the Family Welfare programme (KKS) automatically receive a card and benefit from the programme if they are: registered in a school (either private or public and at all levels, including Islamic schools and boarding schools); part of a study group (study packages A/B/C); or enrolled in a training course
In 2014, around 160,000 cards were printed and distributed to students in 18 districts or cities;
In 2015, this has been extended to 20.3 million cards and all children who fulfill the programme requirements will be eligible, even if their families do not have Family Welfare cards (KKS).
KIP will also extend to children of school-going age who are no longer in school, to encourage them to resume their education. These include, for example, children who have social welfare problems, orphans, street children, child workers and the disabled.
KIP ensures that children benefit from the grants continuously throughout their schooling, right up to senior secondary school level.
