GREEN SCHOOL FUNDRAISER FOR LAPTOPS FOR BALINESE YOUTH

Laptops for struggling Balinese students

Our project:

Since Covid started spreading around 1 year ago, the Balinese economy has been hit extremely hard. Upwards of 85% of the local economy comes from the tourism industry, and as that industry dissipated, a large amount of the population is now struggling. Many local schools are still closed and can look forward to being locked down for months to come, and with no money, many parents cannot afford laptops for their children to partake in distance learning. Resulting in a devastating body of students that lack months and months of education. 

Who will benefit? 

For this project, we have partnered with BCF (Bali Children Foundation), who have pledged to support us by 1. Purchasing the laptops 2. Choosing the students that will most benefit from them and distributing the laptops to the chosen students 3. Document that the laptops are delivered with documented consent from the chosen students. 

A quote from Margaret Barry OAM DSJ Founder Bali Children Foundation:

"A laptop gift is the gift of FUTURE SUCCESS for a remote, disadvantaged Bali Senior High School student. Because their families are poor, there is no computer in their home. Instead, they battle to do online learning on the family phone, spend precious funds traveling for internet access and an internet cafe to send their school work to teachers. Whether these students graduate towards Tertiary studies or enter the workforce, a laptop provides freedom to research, study, submit work, apply for jobs, and build the skills necessary for life in 2021."   

Our story:

We are three year 10 high school students at Green School Bali. As part of our final project for a social studies class on Covid and Colonialism, we were asked to put together a project that could truly benefit the Local Balinese community by countering one negative effect that Covid - 19 has had on Bali. We chose to focus on education as we realize that the fundament for getting the Balinese economy and culture back up and running is a good education.
