Serai Kindergarten

Project Type: Supplies only

Percentage Complete: 55%

Remaining Costs: $900 USD

Students: 20

About

Surai Kindergarten is the only pre-school in this village. There are currently 20 students, but many children from the village do not go, due to the poor quality of the school.  The majority of villagers here are farmers and laborers. Teachers struggle to provide a good quality of education as the school’s supplies are all old, broken or both. New supplies and painting would reinvigorate this school and promote higher enrolment from local villagers. Supporters Hands of Empowerment and Bobbi have helped to support supplies so far – although we still need to raise the remaining sum to complete the school.

Tunas Bangsa Kindergarten

Project Type: Building Renovation

Percentage Complete: 0%

Remaining Costs: $16,000 USD

Students: 35

About

Tunas Bangsa Kindergarten is in shocking condition. It speaks volumes that even in such poor condition, 35 children still persevere and go to school here. Since forming in 2012, the school has operated from an old teacher’s dormitory. The building is very dangerous, with parts of the roof ready to fall down and window frames eaten by termites. To make things worse, there are hardly any supplies and only tiny rooms for study. This building requires a full renovation and compliment of supplies. With a renovation would come a rejuvenated village and higher attendance from local young learners.

Giri Shanti Kindergarten

Project Type: Supply only

Percentage Complete: 0%

Remaining Costs: $2,000 USD

Students: 23

About

There is only one Pre-school in this village. They run school activities without enough supplies. Still, the dedicated teachers have made the school as bright and colorful as possible. The children only use one note book and a pencil for their studies. With the building in ok condition, all they really need is school supplies, support and a mural painting that can give students fun new ways to learn.

Eka Tingas Kindergarten

Project Type: Building Renovation

Percentage Complete: 0%

Remaining Costs: $19,000 USD

Students: 36

About

Eka Tingas Kindergarten somehow crams 36 children into a small room. The building itself is in such poor condition that it would not be worth renovating, especially because of its low capacity. With old supplies that look like something out of a horror movie, it’s no wonder the teachers struggle to educate their children. There is a large unused dormitory building nearby, that is perfect for a renovation, and would transform this kindergarten into something special.

Widya Karya Kindergarten

Project Type: Building Renovation

Percentage Complete: 0%

Remaining Costs: $14,000 USD

Students: 45

About

This pre-school is located at the foot of Mt. Agung. The dedicated teachers run activities at the community building every morning. It’s a borrowed building, but it has a decent sized room that the school is allowed to use indefinitely. The  teacher is very creative, despite the lack of materials and supplies. Given new materials and supplies the school could have far better educational standards. Along with providing teacher training, we plan to provide new furniture, arts and crafts, a library corner, sports equipment and a full complement of educational toys.

Darma Putra Kindergarten

Project Type: Small Renovation

Percentage Complete: 0%

Remaining Costs: $6,000 USD

Students: 36

About

With incredibly dedicated teachers, the community of Darma Putra has managed to create a very impressive kindergarten for their students. Although their building is old, they’ve painted and tried to make the classroom as colourful as possible. However, they lack supplies, have a missing ceiling and need some window replacements. The kindergarten would be complete with a trademark mural to truly bring it to life.

Jnana Giri Kindergarten

Project Type: New Building

Percentage Complete: 0%

Remaining Costs: $25,000 USD

Students: 31

About

This Kindergarten’s activities are run out of an enclave in the local community building (known as the ‘banjar’ building). The village knows it is important to give its youngsters early stage learning, but as with others villages, there is no other building to operate from. With very few supplies and a small space, it’s no permanent solution for the school. Ideally, we will build a dedicated new building, complete with full supplies and equipment. The school is in Karengasem, not far from Mount Agung.

Kuncup Mekar Kindergarten

Project Type: Supplies Only

Percentage Complete: 0%

Remaining Costs: $2,600 USD

Students: 23

About

Playdough, Legos, and puzzles are strange things for children in this preschool. Ordinarily, they never see those kinds of educational toys. They usually use only a pencil and notebook for study everyday every day at school. This school is currently moonlighting in the local community banjar building. It is located in Karengasem – Bali’s poorest regency. The school runs well and makes a nice fresh outdoor learning environment. Providing full furniture, arts and crafts supplies, games, toys and more will make a huge impact on the quality of education. As with all schools we support, we will keep a close eye on development as well as helping to train teachers in effective early stage education.
