Bali is always changing. Although Erlika’s sponsorship has fallen through, she hasn’t stopped smiling. Can you help re-sponsor Erlika for school?


Made Erlika Putri goes to elementary school in a small village in Karangasem, Bali. She has an older sister, Erika, who has already been sponsored.

The toilet Erlika, Erika, Mother, Father The girls' bedroomErlika lives with her parents, her older sister, her grandfather and grandmother. Her family are rice farmers, with very low incomes. The shack the live in has three rooms, which is shared by 6 people (Erlika, Erika, Mom, Dad, Grandma and Grandpa).

We were delighted to have had both sisters sponsored last year, but heard in January that Erlika’s sponsor had to cancel the sponsorship.

Erlika’s unusual dream

Erlika has the very unusual dream of becoming a midwife and if she could become sponsored once more, it would open up her future opportunities once more.

If you can sponsor Erlika, please visit our donations page and select monthly donation of $40 USD. Remember to mark your donation ‘FOR ERLIKA’. Alternatively, please get in touch if you have any questions.

January sadly has been quite a tough month for sponsorships. We have had a handful previously sponsored children return to our sponsorship waiting list and have so far only managed to arrange one new sponsorship for the whole month.
