It’s hard to imagine having any kind of long term plan for a future without Jack, but the work we have started and will continue to build upon in Bali with the children is enough of a focus, along with giving Katie the chance to study her A-Levels in one of the most beautiful places in the world. She is aiming for a University place in Australia!

 

 

Our to-do list:

  1. The Orphanage has many ONGOING MAINTENANCE issues requiring constant attention, from electrical, plumbing, drainage and general wear and tear to providing clean clothes, bedding and most importantly food. We hope to be able to help with all of these day to day requirements.

  2. Being able to speak multiple languages, English being the most important (luckily for us), is crucial for young adults looking for work, as the country relies very heavily on its tourist industry. We plan to offer conversational ENGLISH LESSONS with the kids, in order to improve chances of future employment.

  3. On the subject of employment, Claire has a vision. When the kids reach the age of 18, it’s time to move on and find work, accommodation and stand on their own two feet. There is a program already in place, where the young adults are encouraged and helped to find work. They have the loan of a scooter, which is crucial for getting around, and looked after while starting work, earning money, and saving for a deposit, to rent a place of their own. Claire would very much like to open a COFFEE SHOP, or something similar in a building that would be large enough to accommodate some of the young adults, with their own rooms and living space where they can learn to look after themselves, while working in the shop and earning money. This would enable them to save for a deposit, their own scooter, clothes, food, etc and have some valuable work experience to put on their CVs.

  4. The orphanage currently run a SPONSORSHIP PROGRAMME for the children. It provides food, clothing, and the safe haven of the orphanage, plus the extremely important education. Most of the children are sponsored by people from Australia, but not all. We’re in communication with the founder and will provide the information as soon as it’s available.

  5. We have a lead on ANOTHER ORPHANAGE not too far from where we hope to live. We will investigate this further if and when we get to Bali. We hope to help them too, in any way we can. We’ll keep you posted as it all unfolds!
