Kids from Bali International School Join Habitat for Humanity Projects to Build Homes for Island's Poorest Families.


(5/22/2010)

Children participating in the Bali International School's (BIS) baccalaureate program are encouraged to broaden their perspectives, consider global issues, and contribute to the community.

Apropos of these guidelines, students from BIS are active participants in the internationally known Habitat for Humanity movement.

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit international organization that strives to provide simple, decent and affordable housing to the poor. The organization is supported by thousands of people, including former U.S. president Jimmy Carter and his wife, Rosalyn, who physically participate in the actual building of new houses.

The students at the Bali International School recently took part in two building projects near Gitgit Waterfall, northern Bali. In order to work as volunteer laborers, the students first had to raise funds through numerous bake sales, an informative dinner, a series of competitions, and even a butler auction to raise the necessary funds to pay for building materials. Thirty BIS students managed to raise Rp. 11 million rupiah (US $1,200), while a smaller group of sixteen students volunteered to build houses during their weekend.

The 16 senior students and their three teacher supervisors discovered that the houses they were building presented special challenges. At one home being built for a local farmer, I Komang Amila and his family, the students had to move bricks, mix cement, and build a wall. At another building site belonging to another local farmer, I Gede Suparpma, the BIS team built the home's foundation.

Following two days of intense work, the students felt the satisfaction of knowing they had helped two families secured a safe residence that they can call home.

For more information on this initiative or on other aspects of the school's Global Citizenship Program phone +62-(0)36- 288770.
