Fund a Library 2018-06-07T14:43:51+00:00

Funding a library in Bali is as rewarding as it gets. Renovating, supplying and training schools is one of the best ways we can support literacy in Bali. Funders are invited to see the projects upon completion.

Whether you are a school, business, teacher or individual just wanting to do a good thing, our ‘fund a library’ program is open for funding.  You can see our whole list of schools currently in need, waiting for you to transform literacy.
