CoinChanceis an award-winning social movement that drives people to collect and count their unused coins and lose changes; using the collective amount to keep a child stay in school. The initiative was started as a personal project in 2008 by Nia Sadjarwo and Hanny Kusumawati, who were always concerned about issues regarding access to education. They were surprised when, soon after, the movement gained recognition from Netizens, brands, corporations, and mass media.

Jakarta has helped more than 40 children pursue their education. 29 of them have graduated from high school and found work, and some have received scholarships or financial support to continue to university.
