A United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and World Bank study published after the Bali bombing showed that an average 31% of all Balinese children were forced to drop out of school due to the economic impact following that tragedy. [Bali: Beyond the Tragedy]

In order to address the urgent need to get Bali's children "back to school," the Bali Hotel Association (BHA) has committed support to the Yayasan Kemanusiaan Ibu Pertiwi (YKIP) Foundation's "Back to School" program for 2005. As part of that support, BHA has printed 40,000 informational brochures for distribution to guests staying ay member hotels in the coming months.

The Extent of the Problem

YKIP has documented thousands of Bali's children in need of educational scholarships. The "Back to School Fund," established in October 2004, assists impoverished children on the island Bali with educational costs. By donating US$150 per year, sponsors pay school fees, books, uniforms and basic expenses for a primary school student in Bali who would otherwise become a dropout. Secondary school sponsorships cost US$250 per year.

The YKIP has estimated that Rp. 3.1 billion (approximately US$ 337,000) is needed to fund schooling costs to get the island's children back to school.

Educational Support From BHA

In addition to the "Back to School Fund," BHA continues to sponsor Balinese tourism university scholars, administers the Annika Linden BHA Memorial Scholarship, and the BHA Foundation Scholarship for the estate of Ketut Tantri.
