ABOUT OUR MINISTRYHOW IT BEGAN AND WHAT WE DO
Benoa Ministry is serving poor families in slum area around Tanjung Benoa, Nusa Dua. About 20 minutes drive from our base Jimbaran. We teach children age 4 to 13 years old some basic English, how to read and write and also we have bible stories class for older kids age 10-13 years old to teach them some bible principles.
This ministry was started by Alan Lim, our founder in 2010 who that time met a man who worked as a diving instructor and he invited Alan and his wife Susie to visit his family who live in the slum area in Tanjung Benoa. Alan saw the opportunity to gathering the kids and played with them. From there it develop to a class where they didn’t just play but also learn basic English.
A new location
We have moved from previous place to a new location because the families got kicked out from the land they were renting. Now we have new location and have some new kids came to our class. We have about 15 children sometimes 20 when you have special day or celebrations.
We want to reach out to children age 4 to 14. We understand that this at this age children learn quickly from their peer or surrounding.
Win this Generation
We want to win this generation for kingdom purposes. We want to see them grow with good character and education with the hope that through them we can also win their families. Also we want to see the bible story class that we just started to be a place where these children feel safe to share about their life and to support each other.
Come and JoinChanging lives through education
You can come teach in our different classes. We have three different classes. Basic English for kids age 10-12, math and basic English class for age 7-10, read and write class for pre-school kids or you can help us in our bible story classes or just come and play with them!
Most Indonesian schools (public or private) require children to know how to read and write when they enrol into elementary school or they need to have Kindergarten certificate. Most of their parent cant afford to send their children to attend kindergarten. So we are there to help younger kids who want to attend elementary school how to read and write so that they can be accepted into grade 1. .
