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

Serai Kindergarten

Project Type: Medium renovation

Percentage Complete: 10%

Remaining Costs: $8,100 USD

Students: 26

About

Surai Kindergarten is the only pre-school in this village. There are currently 26 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 replace the termite infested windows, doors and furniture, as well as more supplies.

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.

Kerta Yasa Kindergarten

Project Type: Medium renovation

Percentage Complete: 0%

Remaining Costs: $7,100 USD

Students: 26

About

Kerta Yasa Kindergarten has a dedicated community committed to educating it’s 29 students. However, the building is getting worn and needs some repairs such as ceiling fixes and new doors. Most villagers work as laborers or famers, meaning there is not much budget to improve the school. Most importantly, the school has very little in the way of educational supplies. What they have is old and broken. Almost everything is old and worn, including the playground. The school was established in 2009 and uses it’s original supplies. There are 3 teachers who run class from 7.30am – 10.00am, Monday – Thursday.

The Banana School

Project Type: Supply and Paint Project

Percentage Complete: 0%

Remaining Costs: $5,000 USD

Students: 26

About

The school resides in the village of Pisang (meaning ‘banana’ in Indonesian), central Bali. The school had been taking place in the ‘banjar’ building – a community building in each village in Bali. One day somebody broke in and destroyed all the furniture. The teachers took hammers and nails to try and fix things. Their space was inadequate. After saving their budget for years, the village finally afforded to build a new building. Sadly, they didn’t have any money to provide supplies and so are still using their old termite infested furniture, along with hardly any supplies. The school needs a new complement of supplies along with new furniture, a new mural, new equipment and a playground.

Penuktukan Kindergarten

Project Type: Large renovation

Percentage Complete: 0%

Remaining Costs: $28,000 USD

Students: 46

About

From a distance you could be forgiven for thinking this school looks ok. However, get close and you’ll see it is close to collapse. Almost all windows have been destroyed by termites. The ceiling is caving in and the school is a clear danger. The building is in such poor condition (and built with such poor materials) that much of it cannot be salvaged for a renovation. We plan to knock this building down, recover what we can and create a wonderful new large kindergarten and preschool. It is a large project that will have a lasting impact on a large kindergarten and a community that desparately needs support.
