Wahyu, a 12 year old 6th grader in Jembrana, is the younger of two. His older sister, who was sponsored, graduated last year. His sister had planned to help with his school fees when she graduated. Unfortunately, the pandemic struck and his sister is still struggling to find a stable job. So, Wahyu is going to drop out after finishing his primary school in June this year if he doesn’t get sponsored.
His father and mother are laborers, but they also struggle to find labor work since the pandemic and recession hit Bali.
His family raises livestock that are owned by another person. Wahyu is being tasked by his parents to forage grass and veggies to feed the livestock every day when he’s not busy studying or doing his school work.
