    Zen Dive Bali

    Project

    Yayasan Rare Angon Giri Indrawati is the NGO entirely built by local people, for the children living on the lush hills on the east coast of Bali. Out of love for them and the land, they call their students Bali Children of the Hill.
    The NGO has a scope of providing additional after-school education to the students in four primary schools in the surrounding area. The program focuses on English lessons, computer lessons, environmental lessons and sports.
    Bali Children of the Hill are 130 students from the ages of 7 through 14 years old; the majority come from agricultural families who harvest the land growing rice, coconut, papaya and banana.

    Initiatives Supported

    All the needs are current as of November 23, 2020

    Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

    Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
    • Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
    • The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

    Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
