Jungutan Library

Project Type: Medium Sized Renovation

Percentage Complete: 0%

Remaining Costs: $12,000 USD

Students: 110

About

Jungutan library is located in the mountains of Karengasem, east Bali. The library building is clean but sadly is still not much use to children. The books are mainly boring black and white work books, so the building is rarely used. Still, the teachers try their best to keep the building clean and interesting. A renovation here would provide an inspiring new space for students.

Seraya Library

Project Type: Medium Sized Renovation

Percentage Complete: 0%

Remaining Costs: $10,400 USD

Students: 102

About

Up in the rural mountains of Bali, this library never really had children learning inside. It’s because the books are old and not so interesting. There’s no comfortable seating and the building is showing signs of decay. The school has kept it clean and tried to encourage students to read, but when children aren’t interested, it’s hard to inspire them. We aim to turn this library into a beautiful learning center, if we can find a donor to fund it.

Pengotan, fabled for it’s traditional Balinese village life seems to have been preserved in time. With that though, so has the local elementary school library. With most books dating back to the 1980s and an old, tired building, students here rarely visit their library anymore.

Sulahnya Library

Project Type: Smaller Renovation

Percentage Complete: 0%

Remaining Costs: $5,500 USD

Students: 77

About

Sulahnya Library is actually in fantastic condition. To rephrase, the building is in fantastic condition. However, as with many other libraries, the inside is still not inspiring. There is a lack of interesting books and seating. Most books are black and white and not at all inspiring for children to learn to read and use their imaginations. Our renovation will include over 400 new books, an inspiring mural and new furniture.

Perean ‘3’ Library

Project Type: Smaller Renovation

Percentage Complete: 0%

Remaining Costs: $7,500 USD

Students: 177

About

Despite being a relatively new library building, old furniture, leaks in the roof and poor quality books have meant this library does not interest many of the school’s 177 students. It has no interesting story books for children. It only has lesson books, old bookshelves, and old tables and seats. The school has no budget for buying story books or improving their library.
