Overview

The Problem

Behind the tourist attractions of Bali, you see an island which needs help. Many people are living in poverty so every family member needs to earn money. As a result that children are sent to work on the streets to earn money and are unable to attend school. Due to this, there are a lot of street kids in the tourist areas of South Bali. They are sent out by their family to beg.

The Project

The best way of stopping these children from begging on the street is by providing education and work of the children and their families. This is what the street kids center is doing. The center which is located in Denpasar helps the families and are trying to get them off the streets.

The Centre

This informal school has two classrooms, a library and a play area for children of different ages and levels. They can learn and play like you used to do as a child. The children are at this school from Monday to Friday from 9 am to 5 pm and the center provides breakfast, lunch, and learning opportunities.
