South africa: A nation of contrasts
South Africa, with its rich cultural tapestry and stunning landscapes, is a beacon of diversity. However, beneath its vibrant facade lies a pressing challenge: the disparity in educational opportunities. Many communities still lack access to quality education, a gap we aim to bridge, fostering a brighter, more inclusive future for all.
Students in North Bali in Indonesia score low in reading, math and science. Teachers cannot keep up with technological changes. You can help improve education. On average, students across Indonesia score dramatically poorly when their performance is compared to students from other countries. The results are no exception. That is because the education is not good enough. A consequence of teachers falling short and unable to keep up with technological changes. In short, learning needs to be improved. Teachers need to get good knowledge of the subject they teach and they need to know how to convey that to the students in a fun way. Digital technology is indispensable in this modern world.

For more than twenty years we have been educating children aged 4-16, guiding parents, training young teachers and helping them to find work. We also help with practical obstacles such as school fees or long travel times. The educational center in Pacung has been fully run by an Indonesian team since 2017.
Toddlers are taught in Kumara Sentana, the kindergarten of Learning for Life Bali. Here children can learn through play and at the same time they are prepared for primary education. In addition, we provide after-school programs for children of primary school age and children between 12-16 years old.
In our after-school programs we not only focus on language and math skills, but children also learn communication, social and creative skills. Children learn to tell stories, listen to each other and are taught music and drawing.
A child who learns is a child with opportunities. Learn to read, write and count. Learn to enter into friendships, developing relationships, taking care of their body. What they learn on school is forever.

Founders Frank & Marga were driven by the goal of supporting children who, due to a lack of money, have insufficient chance of good (further) education. Their initiative caught on and was appreciated at a high level. When the Indonesian government decided to make pre-school education compulsory, Frank and Marga were asked to help establish a pre-school in Pacung.
They formed a team with motivated, talented women and men from the area. This laid the foundation for internal teacher and parent training. Some of these early teachers still work in the – now fourteen-person – team that has been running the center independently since 2017.
The sustainable cooperation between the Balinese and Dutch Foundation partners has grown into a successful educational center in
