It’s celebration time for graduates from Bali Children’s Project’s Sponsorship Program. July marks the end of many sponsored children’s educational career and an a world of opportunity lies ahead.
There were jubilant celebrations from children and parents in Ubud as Bali Children’s Project opened our first permanent pre-school and library.
After operating for over 10 years from a small office that doubled up as a pre-school for local children, we finally opened our dedicated new school on 8th January.
We helped Ni Made Suwisni by giving her sponsorship so that she could access school. After years of sponsorship, Suwisni blossomed into an amazing young lady.
When we met Wayan Yuliantari in 2007 she was a bright girl with slim prospects of staying in school. People in her family and community had not been able to get an education and she wanted to be the first. Bright and personable, she was so pleased when her sponsor, Bhanu of Royal Hotels, said that he would sponsor her through high school.
Soni was about 7 years old when she was first sponsored by BCP, having already dropped out of second grade. She was taken in by another family in her crowded compound and she returned to school. The thought of stopping again was never a thought.
Komang Pande is from Petak Village, Madangan, a small village in the Regency of Gianyar. Her father has passed away and her mother is in very poor health. Komang is the middle child with an older married brother with 2 children and a younger one. Her family home is extremely poor, with a dirt floor and on the top of the river bank.
In early 2014, BCP was informed of a brother and sister who were absolutely devoted to the music of the Gamelan, the traditional Balinese orchestra. They had been taught by their father, who had deeply inspired them with a love of this music and a desire to study and teach it. The little girl, Ema Berliana, was 9 and in third grade, and her brother, Anom Candra Yana, 14. He has studied all the arts necessary for a career in Gamelon, including the other instruments and the Shadow Puppets. His life revolves around practice.
