Relief Aid for displaced families living near Mount Agung, Bali
A number of staff members from The Practice will be making a personal delivery of necessary goods to the displacement centres for families that have had to leave their homes do to the eruption of the Mount Agung volcano. At this stage the families are safe from harm from the volcano, but are low on the essentials that many of us take for granted; like water, food, clothing, bedding, etc.
For our INTERNATIONAL yogi’s the best way you can help is with a cash donation (via the PayPal button below), and for our LOCAL yogi’s you can either place cash in the Donation jar at Reception, or you can leave physical donations (please speak to Abi or the staff about the physical donations first).
The cash donations do not need to be large – just $10 can get 2 large bags of rice.
The funds The Practice raises will be used to purchase the following goods:
- Drinking Water (20 litre bottles)
- Rice (25kg bags)
- Toilet tissue
- Mask & Medicine
- Ladies essentials
Plus the hire of a suitable vehicle or vehicles for the delivery.
The Practice Team will make the deliveries to the displacement centers most in need (our Manager – Abi – has local contacts to determine the area of highest need) on Friday 8 December 2017. We will stop taking donations on 6 December 2017 so we have time to organise all the goods and the vehicle required.
Thank you very much for your kindness and being a part of a caring and conscious global community.
Free English Class for The Community
We want to introduce ‘Dina’ to you. She is Indonesian. She is 19 years old. She works in a café in Denpasar. She never finished school because she has 5 siblings, and to put them all through a public school was just too much for the family to manage. So Dina left Java to come to Bali to earn money, so she could help pay for her younger sisters to attend school. She is making a major sacrifice for the betterment of her sisters, and is such an inspiration. She is also very excited to learn how to speak English and improve her career opportunities.
At The Practice, we are about learning, knowledge, making a difference, and supporting our community, at home and abroad. So one of projects we are committed to making happen is to provide English Classes to Indonesians who never got the chance to finish school and would greatly benefit from speaking English in Bali. In a tourist destination like Bali, speaking English opens up numerous career opportunities.
We would love for you to be a part of this project. We will be aiming to sponsor 15 students, for 6 months of English Classes. Their scholarship will include tuition, books, stationary, a class shirt, and a school bag. The cost for the project is Rp 11,500,000 and we are looking at this being a joint project between The Practice and all our wonderful yogi’s.
If you would like to find out how you can be a part of changing the course of someone’s life, with so little, then please go to The Practice Reception Desk and put money in the donation box.
This is complete for now. We will let you know when we start raising money for the next group.
