Fund a Library 2018-12-04T17:46:58+00:00

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.

Whether you are a school, business, teacher or individual just wanting to do a good thing, our ‘fund a library’ program is open for funding.  You can see our whole list of schools currently in need, waiting for you to transform literacy.

See below, or find out exactly why Bali needs more libraries here.

SDN 4 Sukuwana Paketan

Project Type: New Learning Centre Building

Percentage Complete: 0%

Remaining Costs: $26,000 USD

Students: 254

About

The story at SDN 4 Senganan is quite complex. Although the school originally had a library building, this is now a teacher’s house, as the old teacher’s house building was untenable due to it’s extremely derelict condition. The old building cannot be used for anything. Currently the school has some old books, crammed into a classroom. The books are old, worn and seldom read. We plan to demolish the old teachers house and build a brand new library on top of it.

SDN 9 Bondalem

Project Type: Books purchase, general repairs and mural painting

Percentage Complete: 50%

Remaining Costs: $20,000 USD

Students: 170

About

After books and furniture were purchased by donor Bridget, SDN 9 Bondalem had children queuing up to read. Previously the library only had old, boring text books. The school has kept the library well so it never needed  renovation. However, it still needs some support. Remaining works are to fix the broken ceiling, paint a new mural and add more books.

SDN 1 Buahan

Project Type: Building renovation

Percentage Complete: 0%

Remaining Costs: $10,000 USD

Students: 73

About

Located near to Batur Lake on the hills of Batur Volcano, SDN 1 Buahan’s library is in woeful condition. The majority of books are plain text, document style, or class workbooks. The building itself was only ever half complete – 3 walls were not finished and there was never a ceiling. Despite this, the children and headmaster are proud of their library and clean it every day. They are deserving recipients of a new library, if we can find the donations.

SDN 2 Buahan

Project Type: Building repairs (ceiling and replaster), furniture and full supplies

Percentage Complete: 0%

Remaining Costs: $8,000 USD

Students: 78

About

SDN 2 Buahan is some distance from the first Buahan school. Up in the mountains, most of its 78 students walk to school. While their library has lots of books, it is still not in good condition. As you can see the ceiling is falling in and it is extremely dangerous. The inside walls are crumbling too, due to the original building using poor quality materials, so a full replaster and paint is needed.

SDN 2 Marga

Project Type: Building renovation

Percentage Complete: 0%

Remaining Costs: $16,000 USD

Students: 86

About

There isn’t much to say about SDN 2 Marga’s library except that it needs a complete overhaul. Everything in the library is decades old. Furniture is eaten by woodworm, books are as boring as could be. Many books were printed in the 1970s – so almost 50 years old! The building is hardly usable and needs renovating, a ceiling and a new roof. Of course it will also need a full compliment of supplies, furniture and books.
