068 / Desa Kalisada, Buleleng, Bali
After retiring from her job and moving to Singaraja, Mrs. Marshall decided to help the children in Buleleng regency and set up an NGO called Bali Hearts. Bali Hearts’ mission is to help unfortunate children who do not have access to any school. They provide scholarships to kids and open libraries.
Ms. Astri is one of many students that benefited from the NGO’s educational program and now she herself is managing the library in Kalisada, an isolated village in the middle of nowhere.
She says: “The Eco-Education program will be a great help for the local kids, so they can learn how to love their nature through the books.”
The set of books for this Eco-Education Center was financed entirely by Steffi Vanderfu.
