Jan-Apr 2020 was still a difficult month to our Women Workshop. But we would also want to inform that all of our beneficiaries and all of our staff and management are safe and well. We want to send our Gratitude to all of you who have been supporting us all along these few months. We pray that you and your family are also well despite all of this pandemic.
Bali is still closed for International Tourism until further notice, which impact the region with a big hit. There are many businesses closed down and the unemployment rates are increasing the last 12 months. We also have many sponsors backdown and stop their support towards our program
We know that everyone is struggling at this moment due to Covid-19 Pandemic, and we are very grateful that you still continue to support us through this difficult time. Without your support and donation, we wont be able to run our program and change the life of many. You make this happen!!
By the time you receive this report, we are able to continue our program for the Women Workshop. We are able to do things below and many more, The Women’s Workshop which has space for 10 women in the future run five days a week between the hours of 9am – 5pm. The women who come are mostly the mothers of the children attending the Centre The women taught how to make whatever the customers request e.g. handicrafts, jewellery, etc. there are also sewing machines, which can be used. The women supervised and trained by Bali Life staff.
The workshop is not only to provide the women with a regular income but also to add additional income to the family that eventually will enable them to move out of the dump area to a healthier environment. On this pandemic situation is hard for us as there are very minimum orders that we received. But, we are still able to support the mums and the family with basic supplies and provide them with Breakfast and Lunch from Monday to Friday.
For the mothers attending the Women’s Workshop, they gain many more skills, which increase their ability to continue working at the Workshop or eventually, find appropriate paid work It is expected that as a result of health education and free medical support the health and well – being of the beneficiaries will increase. By receiving donations of clothing, personal toiletry items like shampoo, toothpaste, soap etc the standard of living will improve for the beneficiaries significantly.
All Donors, We encourage you to spread the news about the project, please invite your friends and family to support this project and together we can change the life of these children. We still need your help to keep this program running.
