Last update:  January 2015

Roslin Orphanage is located in West Timor, about 10 minutes from “Eltari Airport” in Kupang City. Founded by Budi and Peggy, officially opened by the Nusa Tenggara Timur province governor on March 6, 2002 ( it was started in Dec 1999 ).

Budi was a pilot for Garuda Indonesia , Korean Airlines, Singapore airlines, Scoot Airlines  then since June 2015 has decided to retired and to be full time looking after the orphanage while  Peggy was an airline  stewardess with Garuda Indonesian Airways for 9 years then a house wife and now as the care taker and manager for the orphanage from the start.

Our togetherness is the main strength and we are trying to maintain this togetherness throughout and to all of the children. It is our strong sense of belonging to the place and to each other that matter most to us.

Roslin orphanage is trying its best to help to shape up the children's future by giving them as much education as possible. After the children are finished with their schooling (hopefuly all able to graduate from the university) the orphanage will return them to their own people hoping that they will build their own home town and their own people. Roslin Orphanage is not giving any children for an adoption.

The name Roslin was being formed by combining two Timorese grandma's names who were giving good advices to Peggy when she was a little girl. Both of them were advising Peggy what’s good to be done and how to be a better person in life ( they were not Peggy's real grandmas) . Good values were passed to her and we think that it is a good way to remember them both by combining their names in the orphanage's name. From Grandma Rosalind and grandma Violin the name Roslin was formed.


Vision and Mission of Roslin Orphanage


Basically is to help children at risk and to develop their maximum potential.

By doing so they can to be agents of positive change , contributing meaningfully to their communities.

For example : Doctor in Bali who himself was an orphan child  who treated for free Johanes Bana ,who was once a child at Roslin. He waived all the doctor's fees right through the ICU treatments.   Also another Doctor in Surabaya who recently treated Janri , one of Roslin's child for his ear operation waived all the charges and even brought our child out for sight seing and meals.

To improve the lives of the people in the community by out reach and knowledge sharing like an out reach and knowledge sharing about health matters, illness prevention on Malaria and tubercullosis and other illnesses.  Also to share knowledge about farming as to break the poverty cycle through farming and other education related activities.

We will do our best on equiping/raising/ building individuals to become agents of positive change who will contribute meaningfully in their communities.

Children, Staff, and Facilities

As of December 2014  we are having 178  children which majority of them are under 10 years old and they have been living at the orphanage since they are “days old babies”. The youngest child is 6 months old and the oldest is 25 years old and his name is Gerson. He has graduated from the Medical School.  In July 2015  22 of the older children have left us after graduated from school. It was so sad to let them go but it is their choice of path  ( Even though we want them all to continue their studies to the university ).  Currently there are 11 children studying at the university. Next year we are expecting to have a family celebration as 3 of our children should be graduated from the university on agriculture, mechanical engineering and computer science.


We are having 5 people to assist us on looking after the orphanage day to day activities. Two people for looking after the babies, two persons as drivers and one person , Marsalina Oematan , she has been with us for the last 19 years to over look the progress and making sure that everyone are taking part of the day to day duties. The rest of the routines are being conducted by the older orphanage children helping the little ones. The little ones are not only observing, but also learning in the form of working along with the older ones as their efforts to be self sufficient and independent in the later years. All of the management and decision making are based on their inputs and decided by my wife and myself.

The orphanage size is 11,150 m2. Inside the compound we have 8 buildings and 4 more building to be built in the future.

Our Farm

Roslin orphanage has been self sufficient on rice since April 2008.

40 km (25 miles) away from the orphanage is our rice field which is about 30,000 m2 (7,5 acres) with more land to be cleared next to it of 60,000 m2 (15 acres). There are two more rice fields but at a different locations. For further development we will need a good land clearing machine if possible. The newly made banana farm is in progress of 30,000 m2 (7,5 acres) which is about 3 km (2 miles) away from the rice field.

In the next few months we will have our newly made banana farm capable of supporting the orphanage on teaching the children more about farming and at the same time to produce food source and even making some income when we are selling the banana to the public. For this farm we need some help for obtaining the small bulldozer which hopefully can be rented locally. So far we have been doing it by means of manual labour which not only slow but we have been often hurts on dealing with the sharp thorny trees upon clearing the farm land.


A new farm is in the making and it is designated as an eco village of which all plants will be organic plants and using the organic feriliser both from cow dunk as well as from the dead leafs or others. It was originally a rocky land and never been utilized as a farm land because there is not much of top soil on it . By doing the land clearing and a hard work of about two years , Roslin has managed to changed the rocky surfaces of which it was a raised sea bed into a farm land as what we can see on the picture below.  We wish to have our own excavator one day as to work some more on changing the rocky land into a productive land ( currently Roslin is renting the excavator when able)

More Buildings in the Future

When we have completed building the girl’s dorm we will have more children joining the orphanage and currently we are having 170 children in total. It was the space and finacial means that is limiting us from having more children at Roslin Orphanage.  We are so blessed for being able to maintain the hygiene because we are having our own water source at the orphanage’s ground. By having our own water we will be able to plant more veggies and others just to fulfil our need in food and vitamins from the organic plantations.

Currently we are having 5 girls doing the nursing school, one on her third year of agriculture university, one doing the final year for mechanical engineering and one doing the third year on computer science. In Timor both doctors and nurses are so limited on its number. We need more medical related people to be serving this area. We are so blessed that one of our orphan ,Gerson has completed his medical school which making us to have our inhouse doctor and nurses.

We have been conducted Roslin KIndergarten for the last 3 years on our own building just next to the orphanage building. The kindergarten is for our own children as well as for the children at our community.

In the future we are planning to build a medical clinic to serve the community which Gerson will be incharge for it

Dear Miss Shirlyn,
Thank you for your kindness. The address for the orphanage is as what the address on the "about us"'s page.
My address in Singapore is , Laguna Green , 20 jalan Hajijah # 03-11 , Singapore 468726
It will be best if one day you can give your love gifts to the children directly in West Timor.
Have a blessed day.

Budi and family

Dear Miss Asrina,
Thank you for your kindness . The books will be very valuable to the children's library section. You may pass them to me and I will bring them timely . I will be leaving on August 21st to the orphanage for 10 days.

Thank you very much.

Budi and family

Dear Budi,
What a wonderful job you have done! Would certainly like to visit the ophanage oneday and provide physical and monetary assistance.
Do you have any pictures of children to adopt? Would love to help out. Thanks!

God Bless!

Dear Miss Sarah,
Thank you for your willingness to help out. When were starting the orphanage we didn't have any idea at all about giving the children away for an adoption. We love the children so much. But as our goal has been the happiness of the children we are thinking more openly. If the happiness is mean to be an adoption let be it . Even though we do not know anything at all about the procedure and loving them so much like our own kids. The procedure can be quite hard as there has been a recent case of an adoption by a people from EU country which led into a court case . " If I am not mistaken" , the people who wants to adopt must be living in Indonesia for at least 2 years and other things may be.
Our intention is still the same , that is to look after them and to send them to school till at least high school and to the university for those who are having the potential to do so. After that we will send them to their home town ( family if they have) and without having the need to pay us back or working for us . Their happiness and success in life is our prime goal. If they are coming back to help is a bonus for the orphanage . Regards.

Dear Pak Budi dan Mama Peggy,

Kami sekeluarga berkeinginan untuk berbagi kasih dengan anak-anak di panti asuhan, berupa bantuan pendidikan.
Kami melihat foto anak-anak di blog sebelumnya, dan tidak bisa menemukannya di blog kembali. Kebetulan saya sempat print dalam bentuk pdf.

Ada bisa dimungkinkan kami berbagi kasih, dengan biaya per bulan/semester untuk pendidikan untuk 1 orang anak didik : Lodiana Tanono

Dan juga untuk kebutuhan gizi,susu dll untuk Paulina Dovee Bupe.

Mohon maaf sekira ini berkenan, namun kami juga mohon pencerahan apabila ada putra-putri yang lebih membutuhkannya.

Mudah-mudahan kami berkesempatan berkunjung ke panti asuhan, karena putra kami mempunyai darah didaerah sana, sekalian kami bisa mengunjungi tempat nenek moyangnya.

Salam Kasih Tuhan,

Hi Pak Budi,

I just got back home from Treasures Women Conference "Love Never Fails' by JPCC at Senayan City. I went straight to my work desk and watched you again on YouTube and I was touched and speechless by your story and testimony and how God's love is truly seen in your family and your life. You and Ibu Peggy instantly became my inspiration and my role models. I have been married for 2 years now, and listening to your story made me realize that true marriage is also built by a hard work and a praying wife. Your wife is truly the epitome of a woman as describe in Proverbs 31. I admire your team work as husband and wife and it has encouraged me tremendously in my own marriage. For that matter, I thank you. I pray that you and your wife and children will always win in life with God. Reach more souls and make this world (especially our beloved country Indonesia) a better place. We support you and hopefully we will have the privilege of having you be our pilot when we fly with SQ to the States. That would be awesome :)

Hello Captain Budi

We have some baby and children clothings and toys to donate, where can we mail to?

Hello! I am dora and I'm 16years old, living in Singapore and today I have sorted out my books and wanted to give these books to the children there, but I have no idea how to. So can you please contact me through my email because I am clueless! Haha! Thank you, I will be anticipating for your reply:) I really want them to have my precious books because I believe they will treasure them more than I do, so please reply me!!:)

Hi CaptainB,

This is from James from Singapore.

The purpose of this comment is to find out from you if your Orphanage accepts donations of used Toys, books for children, and reusable items for children (still in good condition)?
We are a small group of people, strongly believe in unconditional love through sharing and giving. We often will have used toys given to the less fortunate. Throwing them away is a big waste.

However, we are not charity group. We do this from our heart. So we will want to extend this opportunity to your Orphanage.

Let me know if your Orphanage accepts those items?

Feel free to call me if there is any doubt!
Thank you!

Dear Ms Julie and friends

Toys are great for the children.
Thank you


Dear Capt Budi

I have quite a handful of soft toys to be given away to the kids. In fact, most of them are new. Can these be donated? How can I pass to you in Singapore?


Hi Budi, how are you? It is inspiring to see you putting your care into action, and I would like to see how I can help.
I am able to collect used clothing (children and adults, not torn) which are wearable, and stationery and gift items (like picture frames, souvenirs etc), toys, books, other household items etc, some new some used, but all are usable and none is damaged. And I think it will be nice if they could benefit the children or young teenagers or adults in Roslin Orphanage.
If they can be of help, please let me know and I can arrange direct shipping from Singapore.

Hello Budi,

I would like to speak to you about the orphanage. Can you please contact me at vals.email@gmail.com? I would love to discuss ways to help the children.

Thank you and God Bless you!


Dear Budi
It is heartwarming to read that you are doing so much for the less fortunate children out there.
I do have some used but in condition children's books and toys which I'd like to donate. Please let me know how I can pass them to you.
Also, I'd like to find out more about the orphanage you are running so that I can see how my group of friends and myself can help in any other ways.
Look forward to your reply.

Dear Capt Budi
Do you happen to have a volunteer program or would you be in need of volunteers to help at the orphanage? Interested in making a difference. Thanks for the input.

Dear Pak Budi,
I'm very inspired by your efforts, your faith and your life, for what you have been doing to the kids in Kupang. I wanna give support in the form of donation to the orphanage. I live in Jakarta so please kindly advise the local bank's account that i can remit my donation.

God Bless you and your family.

Salam Sejahtera Pak Budi dan keluarga,
Saya ingin bertanya apakah saya dapat datang mengunjungi Roslin Orphanage untuk beberapa waktu untuk menyumbangkan tenaga?
Jika memungkinkan, penerbangan apakah yang harus saya pakai jika saya berasal dari Jakarta?
Terima kasih banyak sebelumnya, Tuhan memberkati Pak Budi dan keluarga.
Salam Kasih

~grasha d.

Dear Capt Budi,

Dear Pak Budi,

We are in Singapore and I have some very good clothes that my children have outgrown and some never worn. In addition to clothes, there are very good educational toys (non battery operated, e.g. teach the alphabet, numbers) and simple hard covered English books (internationally recommended authors) that would be beneficial to all children. Could you please contact me so we could arrange something.
Thank you
