They walk 4 to 5 kilometres to school through the dirt and mud, every day, barefoot and without uniforms.



As a result they risk injury and debilitating tropical infections.



And they do all this just to get an education. Just to give themselves a brighter future.



Many get pulled out of school because they're parents can't afford to treat the foot infections they get. This means they don't get an education and the poverty cycle continues.



These 3000 children living in the centre of Bali have been forgotten.
Forgotten by the tourists and the government.



They've only had each other and their spirit to keep on keeping on.



Until now.



Until Dr Tom and his team of Aussie healthcare workers noticed this unfair problem.



That's when BareFoot Bali was born.



With YOUR help, we're raising enough money to clothe all 3000 of these children in new school uniforms and footwear. So that they can feel safe when going to school – feel proud to be learning and building their futures.



Let's give these fighters a hand at creating a better future for themselves.



$10 dollars will buy a school uniform for one child. An extra $5 will get them a pair of shoes too.



Choose how many school uniforms you'd like to donate and you'll receive a BIG thank you, lots of good Karma, a photo of the child (or children) you clothe, as well as a special perk from the list.



Where are these Kids?



Bali is the second most popular holiday destination Australians choose to visit each year. This is due to its beaches, volcanoes, family friendly activities, food and friendly people amongst many other reasons.



Up to 80% of Bali's economy is based on tourism alone! Unfortunately, much of the revenue that is gained does not reach the island's rural communities due to many reasons. This has an immensely negative impact on the children living in these communities.






Basic survival needs are not granted for these children and they must work very hard to support their families on a daily basis. As such, not many of them get the opportunity to go to school, and those who can, attend inconsistently. For those children who do attend school, their school uniforms and shoes get worn out very quickly, resulting in their body being exposed to the elements regardless of the season.






With your help, we are aiming to raise awareness of their situation and $30,000 to clothe all 3000 of these children in new school uniforms and footwear. Every cent donated will be going towards this cause.



Help these children to strive to create a better future for themselves. Help us help them see a brighter future.
