ANAK Help to Indonesian Children
Since 2003 ANAK Charity Foundation help poor children in Bali to be educated through sponsorships in the north and north-east of the island.
Few years ago we opened our first small centre in the eastern part of the island in Amed. Recently in january 09 we opened a new larger Centre in the north part of Bali in Pakisan (Buleleng area). This centre gives english, computer, theatre, dance and weaving lessons. A large library is available for the children of the nearby villages and our regular medical check-ups take place there.
