ABOUT OUR MINISTRYHOW IT BEGAN AND WHAT WE DO
The ministry started when staff of a ywam orphanage was reaching out to kids begging in the streets of Kuta and decided to find out where they live because those kids weren't from kuta village area. They found out that most of the kids and their families migrated from the poorest district of Bali, Karangasem, and relocated to Denpasar. She decided to open a room in the place where these kids live to help them get out of begging and to help the families. After a while she passed on this ministry to UofN Bali who continued to develop the ministry.
Today we have a team of 8 serving the community and the children by offering free education with the teaching reading & writing to the little kids, mathematic/general science to the middle age as well as english to the older ones. Besides education we have community development initiatives such as: dental and health care. The kids age are from 5 until 11 years old.
WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW
We now have three classroom to better serve each learning group of kids. Our relationship with the community has grown a lot and we have seen God's hand of favor upon us even before the community leader.
Our vision is to see children safely enjoy their childhood by knowing God as their best friend, equipped with life skills towards the transformation of their lives, families and society.
HOPE FOR THE FUTURE
We are working to see a vocational school come out of this simple initiative and a more effective community development program running among the people in this area of Denpasar with the idea of creating initiatives for families to be completely transformed from within living out of the poverty in mind and heart.
