We have been raising funds for much needed school supplies for the children, on Nusa Penida (adjacent to Bali, Indonesia) for nearly 3 years.

In 2016 we were able to raise $6000 and we bought stationary for over a 1000 children.

In 2017 we  raised almost another $6000, which enabled us to once again reach over 1000 children from the 52 schools on Nusa Penida, with school supplies and sporting equipment. We also donated a water tank to one of the schools without water.

We have been unable to zero the account, however we hope to take our fundraising this year 2018 to a further $6000.

The school packs we provide cost approximately $4 and contain 10 exercise books, 10 pens, a ruler, a rubber and 10 lead pencil. This will last each child one year.

 As an important part of the project volunteers are personally handing these packs to the children in each school.

The children and staff are always so grateful.

We would like to spend some time this year assisting more schools that need water tanks and also help schools that are in desperate need of sporting equipment.

Most Nusa Penida families are very poor and although Primary School education is free, the families must supply stationery and uniforms. This means many families have to make tough choices when it comes to providing the basics for their children to succeed in the classroom.

 All funds raised are solely used for the purchase and distribution of the school supplies.  All volunteers incur their own costs for airfares, accommodation and any additional expenses.

You can follow our journey delivering these packages on this site from September the 29th to  5th October 2018 or you can also follow our Facebook page “Nusa Penida School Supplies” . This will have all our info from the previous years also.

Our intention is to visit the schools annually, if you are interested in getting involved in this project, please let us know. As we would love to have the support of more people involved in this project each year.

We thank you in advance and deeply appreciate your kindness.

Hi friends of Nusa penida,

A 2018 update! We are heading back to Nusa Penida for another trip to support the school children on the Island.
This year our main fund raising campaign is a quiz night a the Local Hotel, South Fremantle.
WE ARE HAVING AN INDONESIAN THEMED NIGHT!
THE LOCAL HOTEL IS DOING DELICIOUS INDONESIAN FOOD.
THERE WILL BE SNAKE DANCERS, SILENT AUCTIONS, RANGRANG TEXTILES ON SALE...oh it will be such fun!!!!
Tickets will be on sale next week; hold the date for Friday, August 31st.

Our intention this year is to certainly assist with stationary supplies, but to also meet the needs of some of the schools that have no water.
Last year we managed to organize a water tank for one school and realized there were many schools that didn't have any water at all on school grounds.
We will also distribute a variety of sporting equipment to some of the schools.

Thank you for listening and for all of your support. I do hope you can be involved this year!
Kind thoughts to you,
Gay & Lee and the Nusa Penida Team.

Hi friends ,

We are at present on Nusa Penida and have reached many schools ...mostly in the remote areas of the island. We have given out personally Just over a 1000 packs of stationary to the primary school children here.
What an absolute joy to see the children’s faces when they receive their stationary bag.

This trip we have gathered some insightful information about resources, libraries, lack of water in schools , and plenty more !
We will be writing a more in depth update when we get back to Australia to share .

Sending love to the kids on Nusa Penida ❤️

Kind thoughts to you

Thank you for helping on this little island. There is also a library which is free for all the locals on Nusa Penida which we helped build. The youtube video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DH2p4ZnkKrM Also it would be great if you could share this message with all your contacts too! hop over to https://www.facebook.com/BaliDogsNusaPenida/?fref=ts and leave us a comment and like and share. Please encourage others to donate, we really need to help Kadek build a vet clinic on this island. As you know there is very little capital by the locals to pay for his services and its hard for him to even cover his costs. The dogs are being desexed on sidewalks etc. His family will help build it, but he needs to buy the land first. Thank you for reading and helping! Terima kasih banyak.
