Balinese Valedictorian Off to Spain

Gede is an 18 year old Balinese Scholar who graduated Valedictorian from the Green School in Bali. He has been accepted to and will be the first Balinese student to attend Instituto de Empresa in Madrid, Spain. Gede received a 50% scholarship and is now raising the balance. He needs our help...

Here's a clip of Gede at home working at in his family's business, which demonstrates a form of Balinese mystical martial arts. That's Gede playing the guitar and gamelan in the video! 

Attending the Green School in Bali opened Gede up to the world. He represented his school at high level conferences around the world, such us the United Nations Climate Talks in Bonn, Germany and the OECD Education 2030 conference in Paris. He was also a senior delegate to 5 Model United Nations conferences in 3 countries over 3 years. These experiences motivated Gede to take his place on the world stage.

Stepping out of my comfort zone is the only way I can achieve more in the future says Gede. 

Gede is a natural born leader and among the most liked and respected of all Green School students. He is an accomplished athlete and Captained many winning sports teams. He's an even more accomplished musician and easily fuses his roots with his travels.

Gede comes from an extremely hard working family who have done (and will continue to do) all they can to financially support him. They just need help from us for Gede's first year!

Nobody deserves this opportunity more than Gede!

Gede says: 

Your contributions will be remembered as part of my journey, and live on in my work to make the world a better place.

Kindest Regards, 
Gede Putra Witsen
