19 Students Sponsored for School in August

After the joy of seeing so many of our students graduate, we’re pleased to say that 19 more students are now on track to complete school, thanks to new sponsorships.

Mostly made up of kind sponsors who’s previous students graduated, August’s new sponsors have continued their support to give other children the same chance.

We thank our new sponsors in August of Omer, Laurent & Marie, Chris, James, Lisa, Michael & Kylie, Heiko, Philippa, Tymur, Sophie, Marketa, Helen, Nesrine, Mclean, Alexis and Petra.

School Dropout Risk in Bali

Statistics in Bali of school graduations are quite shocking.

In Bali the official figures of attendance are:

Primary/Elementary School: 99.5% (one in every two hundred do not graduate)

Junior High School: 97.85% (two in every one hundred do not graduate)

Senior High School: 83.84% (one in six students do not graduate)

The figures for senior high school graduation are also higher in the most built-up, higher income areas (Kabupaten Badung) at 90.79%, while more rural lower income areas are far lower (Kabupaten Bangli has only 74.47% graduation rate).

The official graduation numbers show 98,896 students graduating in 2022. Based on this figure being 83.84% of documented students, this suggests that 19,062 students did not graduate from high school in 2022.

The above figures do not account for undocumented students/children, who are more likely to be from families of poverty. Our estimate is that up to one in four students will not graduate from school.

Our sponsorship waiting list is updated daily. If you’d like to read about students currently needing help to stay in school, visit this page.
