Konojel Community Center opened their doors in September 2011 and began by serving 60 nutritious lunches daily. A medical team diagnosed the most malnourished individuals in San Marcos, who became their first group of lunch recipients. To this day, beneficiaries of the lunch program are selected based on nutritional need and screened through a team of indigenous and medical personnel. Their initiatives target the most at-risk demographics within the indigenous population, including children, pregnant or nursing mothers, and neglected elderly citizens. Since their beginning, Konojel has grown to include programs in children’s education, sustainability, and women’s empowerment. www.konojel.org
Yayasan Bumi Sehat was founded in 1995 as an Indonesian not-for-profit organization. "Yayasan" means not-for-profit, "Bumi" means Earth-Mother, and "Sehat" translates as Healthy. Thus they are the Healthy Mother Earth Foundation. In 2011, they expanded and added Bumi Sehat Foundation International, a 501(c)(3) registered in the United States. They operate two Community Health Education and Childbirth Centers – one in Bali and another in post-tsunami Aceh, Indonesia. At their Bumi Sehat clinics you will find a blend of allopathic and holistic medicine, which effectively reduces suffering. Research has proven that our children’s first classroom is the womb. Each baby’s capacity to love and trust is built at birth and in the first two hours of life. By protecting pregnancy, birth, postpartum and breastfeeding, they are advocating for optimal humanity, health, intelligence and consciousness. Last year alone, the recorded human services provided by Bumi Sehat totaled more than 50,000. www.bumisehatfoundation.org
Opportunities of Development thru Art Orphanage is a grass roots NGO established by Leng Touch in 2003. He & his wife, Sry On's objective is to offer a safe environment with the basic necessities of life, to disadvantaged children who have no one, or no one able to care for them. ODA currently supports 33+ children at their 'Family Home'. It may seem a strange thing to say of a refuge, but the children under ODA's care here are really extremely lucky, as it is a sad fact of life in Cambodia that 2-3 meals a day and primary and secondary education are not enjoyed by many children at all - with hunger being a critical issue. Leng and his wife Sry On perform miracles daily somehow making enough finances from sales of the children's and their art work, plus kind donations from visitors, to provide everything for the children. The children grow up in a very happy carefree environment – quite alien to normal Cambodia village life today - where most children have to leave school at 9 to 11 years old to assist in providing for their family – if they are lucky enough to be able to attend at all. www.odaopportunitiescambodia.org
Yayasan Widya Guna, is a formal Indonesian non-profit organization, founded by Ketut Sadia and Gill Rijnenberg, and its doors opened in 2006. The Yayasan operates under the WINS Project umbrella, a Dutch Foundation, which also has associates in USA, Australia, France and UK. WINS stands for the Dutch phrase “Weeskinderen Indonesie Naar School”, which litterally means “Orphans in Indonesia to school”. Yayasan Widya Guna has now become a place where Balinese children can receive a good start in life. Orphans, the disabled and other children needing a helping hand are given the opportunity to obtain a good education, and become independent and responsible for their own future. As well as providing education, housing and regular food, a support net is also there for the children that require it. WINS works hard to ensure that every child has a sponsor, and the student has a responsibility to that sponsor. Every child has their own e-mail account, bank account and cashbook. They communicate with their sponsor via e-mail and report their balance every six months. Unlike other sponsorship programs the entirety of the donation goes into the children’s bank account and they manage their money with careful supervision from WINS. The aim of this system is to teach the children to be independent and responsible. In the beginning the Yayasan took care of 12 orphans and a few very poor children from the village of Bedulu. This has increased to its current size of 100+ due to the number of disadvantaged children living locally and the open arm philosophy that always has room for one more. The facilitates and aid have expanded to meet the demands in an incredibly inspirational fashion. The children go to the local school in the morning then come to the Yayasan in the afternoon. Since disabled children are not integrated into Balinese schooling, the Yayasan welcomes these children with a range of disabilities and offers them full education, therapy and support in a number of forms. www.yayasanwidyaguna.org
