Green School India Service Trip

We are a group of High School students at Green School Bali traveling to Tamil Nadu in Southern India.

Every hour, 31 children die from HIV and AIDS and 33% of all children who contract HIV die within the first 12 months, 50% by 24 months and 60% by 36 months.

We will be traveling to a small village to volunteer at LIGHT Partnership where we will be working with young children and young adults who either have AIDS or are HIV-positive and who mostly don't have any living family. We will be helping to foster the kids into confident, healthy, integrated members of society. We will spend our days connecting with the children and young adults and then offer a multi-day workshop where we will listen to their stories and share our own.

With the funds raised, we are going to purchase a van ($8000 approx.) for those at LIGHT Partnership, this way those affected can travel and immerse themselves into society again.  They currently don't have any form of transport and they are in a very rural village. Often the kids have to visit the hospital for surgery/ treatment and are currently having to travel long distances on the back of a motorbike, this is not healthy nor okay for children or anyone. The leftover funds will be donated to help pay for medical bills and supplies for the children. 

We will also be volunteering in Sadhana forest, an Eco-village that's mission is in reforestation. In the communal environment, the Eco-village is a true example of living sustainable and taking responsibility for our own impact.

Kami adalah sekelompok siswa dari SMA Green School Bali yang akan melakukan perjalanan ke Tamil, Nadu di India Selatan.

Setiap jam 31 anak di India meninggal karena HIV/AIDS dan 33% dari seluruh anak yang terjangkit HIV meninggal dalam waktu 12 bulan. 33% anak yang menderita HIV meninggal dalam waktu 12 bulan pertama, 50% pada 24 bulan dan 60% dalam 36 bulan.

Kami akan pergi ke desa kecil untuk menjadi relawan di LIGHT Partnership dimana kami akan bekeja dengan anak-anak muda dan dewasa yang menderita AIDS atau yang positif HIV dan yang tidak memiliki keluarga. Kami akan membantu mendorong anak-anak menjadi anggota masyarakat yang percaya diri, sehat dan integrasi. Kami akan menghabiskan hari hari kami berhubungan dengan anak-anak dan orang dewasa dan kemudian memberikan workshop dimana kami akan mendengarkan cerita mereka dan berbagi cerita kami juga.

Dengan penggalangan dana, kami akan membeli mobil van untuk LIGHT Partnership, With the funds raised, we are going to purchase a van for those at LIGHT Partnership, dengan ini anak yang terjangkit HIV bisa jalan-jalan dan berinteraksi dengan masyarakat sekitar. this way those affected can travel and immerse themselves into society again. Saat ini meraka belum memiliki transport. Jika ada sisa dana, uang itu akan didonasikan secara langsung ke LIGHT Partnership.

Kami akan bekerja secara sukarela (relawan) di Sadhana forest, sebuah desa yang ramah llingkungan yang memiliki misi untuk reboisasi. Di lingkungan komunal, desa ramah lingkungan adalah contoh yang nyata dari kehidupan yang berkelanjutan dan bertanggung jawab untuk dampak kami.
