RENOVATION AND REDEVELOPMENT OF THE TWO EXTRA-CURRICULAR CENTRES: LILA CITA and BUDDHI CITA
These two extra-curricular activity centres, created in 2006 and 2009 in the villages of Bunatan and Pakisan respectively, offer free courses in languages, computer studies, traditional arts (dance, writing, music, etc.) throughout the year, and each contains a library available to the children, as well as a computer lab.
These activities stimulate the children and encourage them to share their knowledge, develop their talents, gain confidence and, consequently, reveal their potential.
After more than ten years in operation, these centres need to be renovated in order to continue to be able to welcome the children under healthy, comfortable and stimulating conditions. In addition to the renovation work necessary due to water leakages, the computer labs and libraries need to be redeveloped, in terms of both furniture (chairs, armchairs, tables, shelves, etc.) and equipment (computers, books, etc.).
These centres are also used for children’s shows, for Anak’s team meetings and as welcome centres for godparents and foreign partners visiting Bali.
Global cost of the project : 22 000 euros
Financial needs still remaining : 16 750 euros
CREATION OF A LIBRARY / EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES AT SAWAN
Since 2012, Anak has been partnered with SD Negeri #3 school in the village of Sawan, which welcomes, among others, 25 children that are godparented via Anak. The school’s library is a dirty, humid and dark room, in which the children have little space and few books.
Despite the number of on-site requests, the school has never had a response regarding its library’s renovation.
During 2017, therefore, Anak would like to build a library accessible to all children in Sawan village on a site located 500m from the school. This site would also be big enough to create a space for extra-curricular lessons: art, dance, music, languages and computer studies, etc.
Global cost of the project : 13 000 euros
Financial needs still remaining : 13 000 euros
In 2013, Anak received a motorbike converted into a mobile library from one of its partners.
Three days a week, this motorbike travels from village to village giving children access to books and time to share their reading, which is enjoyed by adults and children alike.
In order to make sure this activity continues, we need funds to renew the books and to support the logistic costs, such as gas, motorcycle maintenance and the driver’s salary.
Global cost : 650 euros
Financial needs : 650 euros
The children supported by Anak will be taken on a tour to discover their island. As they don’t often have leisure time outside the school because their help is usually very much solicited by their parents, this tour will be a wonderful opportunity for these children to create memories.
The program for this special day, planned during October 2017, is a visit to the region of Bedugul in order to discover its temples and strawberry fields.
Global cost : 1850 euros
Financial needs : 1850 euros
ANNUAL CULTURAL EVENTS
Each year, in an effort to highlight the extra-curricular activities Anak provides and to enable children to demonstrate their talents and show the progress they have made throughout the year, Anak participates in two artistic and cultural events.
These occasions provide an opportunity for children to leave their village, to meet other children, and to participate in competitions related to their culture.
Balinese dance competition
Organised by the city of Singaraja, each school and association presents its best dancers for this competition. A dozen children sponsored by Anak will participate in August 2017 and will hope to equal the attempts of children who won in past years.
Indonesian language festival
Organised by Anak, this festival pays homage to the Indonesian language via contests that include poetry, traditional Balinese writing, Indonesian stories and arts (drawings, paintings, etc.). Seventy-five children living close to Pakisan and supported by Anak will participate in October 2017.
Global cost : 1200 euros
Financial needs still remaining : 1200 euros
PURCHASE OF GREEN BOOKS
Created by the Green Books association, these specialised books on flora and fauna provide children with information on these subjects while making them aware of the environment and its protection.
These books are available at each centre and in the various libraries redeveloped by Anak.
