Bali Children’s Project was also able to take me to visit another sponsored child, again on the east coast. Without reliable rainfall they cannot grow rice hence sweet potato being their staple food. You can see their rainwater harvesting system in one of the photos. The money saved on school fees allowed them to build a single room house, but it’s crowded with 3 children and 3 adults. The land is very fertile. However without a motorbike they have no way of getting their products to market (ideal for a micro loan). They also make bamboo baskets, of which I am now the proud owner of two!
