Funding a library in Bali is as rewarding as it gets. Renovating, supplying and training schools is one of the best ways we can support literacy in Bali. Funders are invited to see the projects upon completion.

*all costs given below are estimates, with full budgets and building quotes refined once a project has a potential funder.

About

This school is located in Karangasem, Bali’s poorest regency. It serves 107 students. Most of the parents are snakefruits farmers, green grocers, and daily laborers. The area is particularly known for harvesting ‘snakefruit’ (salak in Indonesian).The library at the elementary school initially appears to be in good condition from the outside. It still needs plenty of repairs though. We aim to give the students and teachers something to be joyful about, in the form of a new learning center, but we need you help to do it.

About

Located near to the idyllic Lake Batur, high up in the Balinese mountains, this school had never actually completed it’s library building. The ceiling was never completed the walls on the sides and back are still breeze block. The whole building has a ‘half finished’ air about it. Most parents of students are fishermen on the lake, or vegetable farmers, with high levels of subsistence living. The dedicted teachers keep the library clean in an attempt to help children learn, but what it really needs is a renovation.
