The workshops have been such a success that there is a huge waiting list of elementary schools asking for workshops.
After word got around, principals from schools all over Bali have been requesting workshops. There are so many requests that we just can’t keep up.
Our initial 2019 target was to directly impact 6,100 students. With the influx of additional requests from schools and our team working extra hard, we were able to reach a massive 7,800 students – 28% more than originally planned.
This means that more children in Bali are equipped to identify and react to cases of abuse.
Our next evolution of the program carries on in 2020. Launching a brand new Indonesian language cartoon, the free new video will be available not just to schools in Bali, but the whole of Indonesia.
Further work includes creating a network of supportive schools who work with local health authorities to help children report and seek safety.
In 2020 we’ll be continuing our Child Protection Workshops and aim to reach another 7,800 students.
2019 has been the biggest year yet for Child Protection Workshops. It was kindly supported by the Mel Wolf Foundation, whose support from the start had enabled this program to continue.
In 2020 we are hoping to reach even more schools, but can only do so with support from donors. If you are interested in supporting this program, please get in touch.
