Laksmi for Literacy - Puteri Indonesia 2022

By Laksmi DeNeefe Suardana

I'm fundraising to help improve education for children in Songan village, North Bali.

I started teaching English to street children. I couldn't believe that in Bali we still have  children who don't know how to read and write - this is where my passion started with literacy.  

Having grown up surrounded by books - I really believe in the power of the pen and the written word! 

After speaking to Margaret about the children in Songan - I wanted to help in some way and then hearing how the pandemic was such a BIG threat in reversing the years of work done in literacy, I wanted to do something about it. 

I believe in the importance of education, the importance of reading - especially for girls!

Songan Visit, June 14 2022

Sunday 10th Jul
I have been wanting to go to Songan village for years with @balichildrenfoundation @marg_barry & today I finally got the chance to visit SDN 6 Songan with @officialputeriindonesia The children cheerfully greeted us then we followed along in class & read them a story book which was about getting lost in the forest. Following my mission in literacy, we are working together towards building the community through improvements in their education, libraries & school infrastructure. Stay tuned what we did & our project together! 

Thank you to my Sponsors
