Children’s Home

The Children’s Home is at the heart of why we exist. We take in children who have been orphaned, abandoned or rejected, with the aim of giving them hope, dignity and purpose.

We provide physical, spiritual and emotional guidance, as well as education. Empowering them to become independent, responsible and successful citizens who can influence change in their own community, in Bali, in the nation of Indonesia and throughout the world.

Shelter

We take in children who have been orphaned, abandoned or rejected, in our care who come from all across Bali and Indonesia, from a variety of backgrounds, but each in need of a new start. We have built up slowly, taking in just one child at a time, allowing them to settle and allowing us to find sponsorship, before taking in the next.

We work off a budget of USD$100 per child per month. This covers the shelter, food, education and healthcare for each of the children

Food

We have a farm near the Children’s home, which helps to reduce the amount of food we need to purchase, and a local resort also donates basic food needs such as rice and cooking oil every month.

Schools

The children all attend local schools; this is supplemented by our educational workshop programme.

Healthcare

Healthcare in Bali is privatized, and can be expensive. The USD$100 per child per month will cover their basic needs, but should a child become very ill we will look to our sponsors for support.

Visitation

All visitors, including donors, friends & acquaintances are able to visit. Please inform us in advance via Email of your planned visit to our Bali Life Children’s Home, to check if your visit is possible. Your visit is possible, only by appointment (confirmed date and time). During the weekends and late afternoon / evenings, the Home has a very busy schedule and needs its rest and privacy. Also during your visit, our kids and teens will not be disturbed in their daily routine. Unscheduled random visits (from anyone) to the orphanage are not tolerated.

To all guest, including all donors, (also acquaintances) always send  an Email to info@balilife.org (at least two days in advance). All communications are directly from guest to us via Email.

The Bali Life Children’s Home cannot arrange any trips / events with the kids and guests or acquaintances, also the home cannot accommodate overnight guests, as the orphanage (like any other home) also needs its privacy and rest. So check with us first, if your intended visit is possible. The Bali Life complex is non-smoking (in- and outside). Thank you for your kind cooperation.
