Back to Bali!

It’s been a long three years since we’ve been to Bali, Looking forward to heading back and helping the Children of Bali.  We will be leaving the US at the end of July and spending 4 weeks there.

 

Village Update – November 9, 2015

Life In Buluh, Tianyar, Karangasem Bali continues as it did many generations before.  This time of the year is an important and busy time since it is the end of the dry season and everyone is preparing the fields for the upcoming rains and farming season.  Families will be clearing the land, tilling soil, and spreading cow manure to grow corn and peanuts. There are no tractors, no store bought Fertilizers or Pesticides and everyone helps, from the oldest to the youngest; their survival depends on it.

Besides mobile phones and a few televisions, the village is very similar to what it was 20 years ago; however the visible difference today can be seen in a few Children dressed in school uniforms leaving early in the morning to attend school.

If you are able to make a donation for upcoming holiday seasons, please think of the Balinese Children of Buluh; they need your support.

Here’s a few photos taken last week.

Living in Remote Balinese Village

These are photos from a typical family house in the region where we are helping people.  The structures house and support 3 generations of this family.  The Grandparents raise cows, pigs and process palm juice to make palm sugar and palm wine.  The Father climbs trees to harvest the palm juice and the Mother is a seamstress.  The children stay home and will attend school if or when the parents can raise enough money.

View From Bunut Village

Bali is a Beautiful Place worth preserving. Here we are at the top of Bunut Village looking at Lake Batur , Bali’s Biggest Lake.

On the ocean side of this mountain range there is no water, a desert with no running streams and quite hot. Lake Batur a huge body of water and cooler temperatures.  A big contrast in climate in such a small space, Bali Never stops delivering surprises.
