Our latest project: support of the

"Deaf School"


in Jimbaran, Bali, Indonesia

During our last stay we had the chance to visit the SLB-B N PTN (Sekolah Luar Biasa Bagian B Negeri Pembina Tingkat Nasional) - The Deaf School.

We met with the school´s headmistress Ibu Murdani (Drs. Made Murdani) as well as with representatives of the supporting Rotary Club Bali Nusa Dua and decided to take on the sponsorship for the renovation of one classroom and the associated meal program (read more about it here soon).

The school is in desparate need of funding to cope with the urgent need to refurbish buildings and improve the drainage and the electrical power system. Support is also needed to ensure proper nutrition of the kids.

COOPERATION of interested physicians, specializing in ENT medicine (Oto-Rhino-Laryngology, Audiology, Neuro-Otology, Logopedia) WANTED !

The Deaf School´s staff and supporters asked us whether we could establish a link to physicians/medical experts who would be willing to give voluntary advice on a case-to case basis regarding the proper medical care for hearing and speaking impaired kids, as they do have some trained teachers but no sufficiently qualified medical staff to consult.

In case you are interested and qualified or know someone we could contact, please let us know !

Among other means of providing valuable support to the 'Deaf School`, Rotary Club Bali Nusa Dua members educate the kids in vocational skills, enabling them to renovate their classroom buildings themselves ! They learn how to perform paint jobs, do basic woodwork, even improve electric appliances etc ....

In return the kids not only get nicer classrooms but are also included in a meal program which provides them with one full meal a week (though the meaning of a 'full meal' is somehow different from what we spoiled Westerners might expect ....).

The money for the materials (wood, paint, cement, ...) comes from donors like hotels and private sponsors (like us), who in return get their contribution recognized by an inscription on each donated classroom's wall.

YOU CAN SPONSOR THE RENOVATION OF ONE CLASSROOM BY DONATING AS LITTLE AS 1,5 MILLION RUPIAH (currently about 180 USD) including two meals for 60 children  !!!
