Bali also has to deal with the Corona crises. There are few tourists left and Bali is very dependent on the tourist industry. Almost 95% of the Balinese work more or less in the tourist industry. Now that it is closed with corona and all tourist facilities, this has a direct impact on the income of the Balinese.
Sjaki has launched a food parcels campaign to support the local Balinese families.
To improve and increase the learning possibilities, communication, capabilities and independence of children with a mental disability. With the usage of several play and learning materials and methods and to support schools and teachers in the practise of this goal.
As a child with a mental disability in Bali, you are not as much accepted as in Europe. Among other things such as religious reasons and ignorance, having a child with a mental disability is seen as bad karma from the parents and/or child. They are embarrassed. This opinion has to be changed! Every child with a mental disability has his/her own qualities and has a right to live in society and to be him/herself . They are not less, but differently gifted and they have the right to participate in the society as an equal person.
