Education for 72 East Bali Mountain Children

by Yayasan Ekoturisme Indonesia Vetted since 2015 Top Ranked Site Visit Verified

Summary

Your support will help East Bali Poverty project (EBPP) to continue providing education for 72 students in EBPP Jatituhu and Pengalusan Schools. Jatituhu and Pengalusan are two of the most isolated communities in Desa Ban, located on the slopes of Mount Abang & Agung respectively where the nearest government schools are more than 4km away with no public transport. We need your help to continue their education so more can graduate school and lead their communities to prosperity.

Challenge

A series of earthquakes and increasing volcanic activity from Mount Agung had forced all schools within the 12 km "danger zone" to be closed and all residents in Desa Ban had to evacuate for more than 5 months. The classes finally resumed in mid-February as Mount Agung status was lowered by the Government, but we are again facing another challenge. Since 2017, the previous Pengalusan and Jatituhu School donors could no longer continue providing financial support for the children's education.

Solution

Your financial support will enable us to continue the education programs in both schools. In addition to the National Curriculum, we teach additional classes in art, computer & financial literacy, reproductive health, and vocational training to optimize their potential and empower these students for an independent future. The education budget will be allocated to pay for EBPP expert teachers, site transport, learning materials as well as nutritional daily meals, health and hygiene needs

Long-Term Impact

These 72 students represent their complete communities who have always looked to their newly EBPP-educated children to guide them to a better and more prosperous future. By continuing to provide comprehensive and integrated education for these children and all other children of Ban Village, they and future generations will become agents of change with the potential to lead their communities to a future of sustainable social and economic development.
