Summary

In 1998, the 6 most impoverished, illiterate and isolated communities of Ban village asked East Bali Poverty Project (EBPP) to help educate their children to lead them to a better life. We opened our 5th school in Jatituhu, the most isolated and impoverished hamlet in 2005, where the children have been educating their illiterate parents in health, hygiene, sanitation, organic farming and of course literacy ever since. We need your help to continue their education to lead them to prosperity.

Challenge

The EBPP has always run on tight budgets and done the most to optimize the use of our funds in communally driven projects. Running on tight budgets and with mounting economic pressure, sustaining the operation costs and providing these children with an environment where they can learn, express themselves and make relationships with friends is a challenge. The nearest school is a government school, in which the children must embark on an aarduous, distant (1:30-2 hour) walk.

Solution

With your help, this project will ensure that 12 children will be able to attend a school that teaches not only the national curriculum but also subjects that will prepare them for the challenges of contemporary life. While attending an EBPP school, children also receive nutritional school lunches, milk, multivitamins and vocational training in organic farming, environmental education, as well as arts & crafts that are fully relevant for the optimization of their future prospects.

Long-Term Impact

By continuing to provide education for these children and all the 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. These 12 Jatituhu children and their other 33 classmates represent the 105 families in Jatituhu hamlet and all the communities look to their newly educated children to guide them to the future. Poverty should fade to history.
