Most fathers in Bali do their absolute best for their children. Sometimes though, despite working all hours, it can be difficult to put food on the table, let alone pay the fees to send their children to school. There are so many families like this that we meet.

Over the last few weeks we have had the pleasure of welcoming young volunteer Audrey to help at Bali Children’s Project.
Audrey first contacted us after she was assigned a ‘Quest’ project from Bali’s world renowned Green School. Audrey and her classmates were encouraged to follow a program they are passionate about.

In May and June we completed the next stage of our wide impacting Sex Education, HIV & AIDS workshops, this time focusing on schools in north Bali.
This time, we were in the regency of Buleleng – spanning a huge area across north Bali. Our sex education work is vital to help youngsters understand and avoid sexual disease, as well as many other issues relating to sexual health.
We’ve been incredibly moved by the kindness of Luh Desi Ani, who has sponsored our ‘child of the month’ Kadek Widiada. We had been searching for a sponsor for Kadek since February 2015.
Luh Desi Ani’s parents managed to support her through school, enabling her to follow her dreams and move to USA. She saw Kadek’s story and decided to help.
We have had the best time teaching our pre school students. This year brought a lot of joy, happiness and learning for children who would otherwise not be able to access early stage education.
As the final term of the year closed in June, we have a special treat for our kindergarten students – by taking them on a trip to Bali Zoo.
We’re so proud to have some really great supporters that help us to send poor children in Bali to school.
This was the case when we had a recent plea from bright young Komang Widiasih. Although being top of her class, her aunt and uncle couldn’t afford the fees to keep her in school.
We have fantastic news for Kadek Fitri – she has been sponsored for her final years of school, by kind donor Michelle.
Kadek Fitri is a 16-year old girl in 10th grade. She has had an extremely tough life, and we’d hoped to change her fortunes with a sponsorship for school.
Kadek Fitri’s father passed away and does not see her mother often. She has moved in with her Aunt and goes to school in Badung.
