What do we do?
Bali Children Foundation Australia (BCFL) is a registered Australian Charity with DGR Status enabling Tax Deductable donations to be made to fund the work of The Bali Children Foundation (BCF) in Bali. BCF is an education provider for disadvantaged Balinese children.
In 2008, our work expanded to community education and the establishment of the village projects. Whilst we are happy to assist children’s education via sustainable, well run Children’s Homes (formerly called Orphanages), we would, by far, prefer to have children living at home whilst they study at school and in BCF education facilities.
In recognition of the support Bali Children Foundation provides for their education, senior students sign a community service contract confirming their willingness to work in their community and support BCF projects. This includes assisting teachers in the classes and developing cultural programs and Village Clubs.
- To provide community education in remote areas of Indonesia.
- To provide primary, secondary and tertiary scholarships to children in 49 communities.
- To provide English in the Village (EITV) and Computers in the Village (CITV) classes in 36 locations.
- To provide educational opportunities to children at associated Children’s Homes
We fully understand the natural desire to help Bali Children Foundation in a “practical way”. However our Bali Children Foundation Projects are remote and we are not able to invite or allow volunteers to offer their services on an ad hoc basis. This doesn’t however apply to educational professionals. For example, currently we do have a need for qualified teachers for our English, Computer, Art and Music programs. If that is your specialty, please do get in touch with us.
How does BCF Help?
In helping Bali Children Foundation with sponsorship you are giving many children in extremely poor conditions an opportunity for an education. With a basic education understanding these children stay longer at school including finishing high school and having the opportunity to attend university or technical college where appropriate.
Further education is to provide English in the villages which include computers in the classrooms located in 19 different regions in Bali and Nusa Lombongan. It also provides education opportunities to children in associated children’s homes. BCF’s district monitors in the villages ensure that every BCF child will attend a school and have the opportunity for an education to reach their full potential.
Bali Children Foundation are currently providing lessons in 36 purpose built rooms. These rooms have been designed and configured for digital tuition of English and Computer Technologies.
