12 year old Sintia was found living in a shack in east Bali. Now, we have some incredible news to share about how her life has changed for the better.

Sintia’s life has completely turned around. When we met her, she lived in a one roomed shack with her father and had little prospect of finishing school.

Sintia lives in the mountains of Bali and her single father who struggles with the cost of living. He never finished school and the only job he could find was to look after chickens. That meant there was no money for home, food or for high school fees. Sintia’s prospects for the future were dim.

Thanks to support from sponsor Niki Kapoor, Sintia’s school future was secured. Things got better when Mercia Marina completely funded our appeal to build her an actual house.

Sintia has gone from a shy, sad girl to a happy, confident and bubbly young lady with a bright future.

Watch this video showing Sintia’s housing before and what she thinks of her new house.

Sintia’s original appeal and story is here, before it was fully funded by Mercia Marina.
