The amazing Bali Street Kids Project is a non-profit organization founded by an impressing woman named Putu and her husband Michael. She and her team are giving disadvantaged children loving care, education, and skills they need to grow. The ‘family’ is made up of two orphanages/homes. Despite the fact that some of the children who live in this facility still have parents, living in this institution is their only chance to get an adequate education. Most of the children’s parents are living in remote villages—and “remote” in Bali means an hour or two away from the glittering 5-star hotels—the residents are very poor and most villages lack education, access to clean water and even electricity. Many children must walk for kilometres to go to school or are not able to go at all. This project is providing help for children at these two institutions. The first one is located in Seminyak and is accommodating the older kids (between 12-18). The second home is an hour drive away located in Tabanan and provides everything that is necessary for a living for their younger children (0-12 years). Putu also built a school for street kids in a slum of Kuta.
“The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.”
The only qualification for participating in this orphanage project is a strong love and passion for working with children and providing them with care and hope. Do you enjoy being around children and possess a deep passion for providing them with what they need? Then you are exactly what we are looking for.
You should also be a kind and a flexible person, with a great degree of empathy, especially for children, as well as enjoy engaging with new and exciting challenges on a daily basis.
