Challenge

15 minutes drive from Kuta is Bali's biggest trash site at Suwung where mountains of rubbish dominate the landscape. It's a 30 Hectare. Trucks dump, move and bury more than 2000 Tons of rubbish every day. Suwung is where all the tourist rubbish ends up.The Suwung rubbish dump is home to a village where local farmers run cattle. This area is also a home for 100 plus families who work in this area by sorting trash by hands.Many of the families can't afford to school their kids

Solution

The vision of the BaliLife's "Suwung Community Centre" is to provide a safe place that the children and their mums and families know and can come for support. This is a place that works to restore HOPE, DIGNITY and PURPOSE to the children who can't go to school due their parent's financial situation. We aim to do this through education, empowerment, medical support and other assistance.

Long-Term Impact

We would like to work alongside the Social Department of Bali and start finding a solution for the current dump problem. Ultimately, the vision of the "Suwung Community Centre" is that the children and mums will experience practical help, to enhance their future beyond the trash area, enabling them to live a life of dignity and pride and to someday make a difference in our world, impacting future generations.
