Your donations enable East Bali Poverty Project (EBPP) to continue providing quality education in 2022 for all 55 students in EBPP's Jatituhu & Pengalusan schools, located in remote hamlets on the steep Mounts Abang and Agung slopes in Ban village. Government schools are too far away and no public transport. We've already sponsored five children to university and need your help to continue their education so they can graduate, realise their dreams and lead their communities to a better future.
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!
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 a wide range of extra curricula subjects in health, nutrition, hygiene, sanitation and art and during the continued COVID-19 pandemic, education has become more important and essential whilst they learn from home, because their parents actively support and learn with them.
"Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today" (Malcolm X). Your support enables us to continue providing comprehensive education for these children 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, gone to university or opened a small business.
