Wir sind der Batu Bambu Kids Foundation e.V. in Kuta Lombok in Indonesien.
Seit zwei Jahren kommen die Kinder aus dem Dorf in das Batu Bambu Guesthouse zum wöchentlichen Kindersonntag mit verschiedenen Aktivitäten.
Die derzeit zur Verfügung stehenden Räumlichkeiten reichen nicht mehr aus!
Wir brauchen dringend ein eigenes Zuhause. Nur so können wir den Kindern die Möglichkeit geben, 5 Tage in der Woche am Nachmittag zu uns zu kommen.
Mit unserem Lernhaus wollen wir einen Ort schaffen zum Kind sein und zum Lernen.
Die Kinder können an verschiedenen Aktivitäten teilnehmen wie z.B Englisch und Musik Unterricht, Workshops und Umweltschutzprojekte.
Zudem bauen wir das erste Plastik Recycling Center in Kuta Lombok!
Lern Haus und Plastik Recycling Center unter einem Dach. Eltern und Kinder eingebunden in ein ganzheitliches Projekt.
Bereits im Juni 2019 beginnen wir mit dem Bau und freuen uns sehr, endlich ein Zuhause für unsere Foundation zu haben.
Wir freuen uns über Ihre Unterstützung und danken von Herzen!

We are the Batu Bambu Kids Foundation e.V. in Kuta Lombok, Indonesia.
For two years, the children from the village have come to the Batu Bambu Guesthouse for our weekly children's sunday with various activities.
The currently available premises are no longer enough!
We need to build our own home to give the children the opportunity to come to us 5 days a week in the afternoon.
With our "Learning House" we want to create a place for our kids to learn and to play.
The children can participate in various activities such as English and music lessons, workshops and environmental projects.
We also build the first plastic recycling center in Kuta Lombok!
"Learning House" and plastic recycling center under one roof. Parents and children involved in a holistic project.
Already in June 2019 we start construction and are very happy to finally have a home for our foundation.
We appreciate your support and thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

This is simply amazing and we want to thank everyone who supported us to come this far!

Also we are very happy to announce that World Wide Action and Bali Island School made it possible that we have the funding to involve an extra teacher and cover costs until we can move into our learning centre end of the year. That is a big relive for us!

When will the building process for the ‘Learning and Recycling Centre’ start?

We wanted to start building in June 2019. As the negotiation for buying the land is still on going and we haven’t reached our fundraising goal yet, we have rescheduled the building date for the beginning of September 2019.

We want to specially thank:

Dear Donors and lovely Supporters,

On behalf of the Batu Bambu Kids Foundation e.V. I want to thank you for your great support and donations.
I wrote an update already on Sunday but unfortunately the update was not saved.

I want to share with you what’s new:

1. We almost collected 4,655 Euro on gofundme and 1,167 Euro in the Foundation Bank account. That is great news.

2. Our flyers are unfortunately not ready yet but our lovely graphic girl is on it!

3. Last Sunday we recorded our Batu Bambu Kids Foundation song “We are the future” with our kids. It was a great day and I think we have a beautiful result. We will share the song soon with you.
This is the lyric:

I´m only a child but I´m the future.
The next generation.
What you teach me
I will bring to this world.
Let's write our future now.

Mother Nature is our home.
We have to care or she'll be gone.
Brother Ocean makes us live.
Let's take care so he can still give.

Refrain: (kids sing)
Teach me good.
Teach me right.
Teach me to be honest and to fight.

Teach me love.
Teach me right.
Teach me about moon and sunlight.

What you destroy, we have to fix.
The faults of your generation
Is what we will have to live.
Make it good, make it right.
Leave something good for us behind.

Remember ohohoho (kids)
Remember ohihoho (kids)
I'm the future of this world.

Teach me good.
Teach me right.
Teach me to be honest and to fight.

Teach me love.
Teach me right.
Teach me about moon and sunlight.


4. We decided that it might be better to ask people to actually cover our song rather than the first idea we had asking musicians to make a 30sec video for us.

Art and music is what we want to use to promote our fundraising. If you like to draw or happen to be or know an artist let us know! We are looking for creative people to make a little sketch about plastic pollution and or about our project.
The pictures we will share on social media to create attention. The Russian artist Inna Smirnova will do the start;) Soon we will share what she did draw for us!

6. Next Sunday we will of course have our weekly Batu Bambu kids Sunday again and will do a little Batik workshop with the kids;) We are looking forward to it!

7. The meeting with the village was a great success. We have a strong village community behind us who is grateful and will support the building site. Each parent of the Batu Bambu Kids will help building for 3 days!

If you want more updates on what we do with the kids you can follow us on Instagram:
or Facebook:

Lovely Greetings from Lombok and again a big thank you for your great support!


Fotos: The 3 uploaded photos are from last Sunday. Raga Fullmoon did a great job working with is team to do the recording. We had 28 kids join for our kids Sunday last week. The kids had a lot of fun until they where just looking forward to jump into the pool. It was not easy to tell 28 kids to be quiet while recording;) But we are sure you will love the recording results!
Big thanks to Raga and his recording team to make it possible!
