Wonderful news for 22 children who would have been dropping out of school! They have all been sponsored by kind people from all over the world.
Sponsorships are the difference between graduation adn new opportunities in life, or dropping out and becoming basic laborers.
As high school costs money, children from families who can’t afford the fees have no choice but to drop out. Official figures suggest one in five students will never graduate high school in Bali. However, in remote villages, this can be more like four in five.
Sponsorships change all that and give children a chance to escape poverty through education.
Our thanks to new sponsors of AnnaMaree, Andree, Angela, Barry, Bridget, Jan, Karin, Robert, Martha, Sarah, Sayan Terrace, Sean and Tim.
