Lumajang Indonesian House of Change (RPI) Foundation fosters 405 NON-PANTI orphans and 48 Tahfidz Qur'an students. The trustees of the orphans are widows and parents who are economically disadvantaged. The main objective of the Community Service Program (PKM) scheme is to assist partners in empowering fostered trustees and to increase their economic independence through BAPER snack production. BAPER snack production by partners has four main obstacles, namely: 1) Low quantity, quality, and product continuity; 2) Product safety is not fully guaranteed; 3) BAPER snack products do not yet have a PIRT permit and 4) Limited product marketing facilities and networks owned by partners. The implementation methods offered to partners are: 1) Procurement of 1 (one) set of production equipment; 2) Practices for food processing production; 3) Guidance on food safety and entrepreneurship training; 4) Assistance in obtaining a PIRT permit; and 5) Procurement of facilities and media online (website) for product marketing. The results of the implementation of the Community Service program are the responses of partners and orphans quite large in participating in the whole series of activities, increasing the knowledge and skills of partners and fostered partners and increasing the motivation of fostered trustees in entrepreneurship. If the fostered family's motivation increases in entrepreneurship, over time it will be able to increase income, empowerment and economic independence. Thus, together with the Lumajang RPI Foundation they can direct, guide the RPI fostered children to become dedicated Muslim individuals and achievers in the future.
