The Indonesian island province of Bali is famous worldwide for its
ancient culture, spectacular beach resorts, breathtaking landscapes that
include steaming volcanoes, hectares of terraced, emerald green rice
fields, tropical rainforests and the most warm and welcoming people.
Idyllic in every sense.
However, Bali’s remote rural communities have been heavily impacted by
both man-made and natural disasters and many families are caught in the
poverty trap with little or no income. There is minimal government
assistance and all education must be paid for. The drop-out rate in
rural primary schools is very high. Children frequently have no option
other than a lifetime of working on the land.
Our vision, at Bali Children Foundation, is to provide an educational
pathway for disadvantaged Balinese children – a journey leading to
growth and long term sustainability.
