Summary

Can you imagine how different your life would be if you lacked access to education? In East Bali, we have 35 children in our remote Jatituhu and Pengalusan EBPP schools, on Mounts Abang and Agung respectively that need your support to continue their primary education. Many of the parents are semiliterate and look to their educated children for a better future and to escape the cycle of poverty. It only costs US$312/student/year. Education is key to breaking the cycle of poverty.

Challenge

With no government schools nearby or any public transport, these children, their parents and communities rely on EBPP schools as the sole provider of children's education, especially high school, where, in addition to the government academic curriculum, we provide extra-curricular modules in computer and financial literacy, job/university readiness and advocate against school dropout, child labour and early marriage, that still occur in these communities. Change has started: help us continue!

Solution

By educating this generation of children in these remote hamlets, they will not only inspire younger siblings and neighbours, but also educate their own parents, the majority of whom didn't go to school. We continue to teach the mandatory Indonesian curricula with addition of a wide range of extra curricula subjects in health, nutrition, hygiene, sanitation, Balinese dance, art and hands-on creative recycling of plastic and other waste, especially bamboo off-cuts.

Long-Term Impact

"Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today" (Malcolm X). Until now more than 320 children got education enabling and empower them to pursue higher education, seek meaningful employment and/or establish a local business and lead their communities to a much better future. They'll become role models as some of our former graduates, who've become community leaders and 5 got scholarship to university.
