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.
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.
