Focusing on Children's Needs

The BCF English program is delivered into communities via a ‘student centric’ curriculum. Our classes emphasise spoken and listening English which are important skills for future employment in Bali. The BCF curriculum is enhanced with videos and presented to the students via a 55 inch smart TV. This exciting use of technology provides students with previously undreamed of opportunities.

BCF employ and train teachers via a unique training program enabling teachers to develop skills and become better teacher practitioners. Curriculums are tailored depending on location, cultural sensitivities and issues pertinent to that specific location.

Environmental studies have been introduced into the curriculum over the recent years beginning with the islands of Nusa Lembongan.  Here it has been vital to build awareness among the children who will inherit this island and the challenges they face. In other areas, especially ‘rain shadow’ districts with unreliable water supply, hygiene and health messages enter the curriculum.

Central to our educational programs is the rigorous monitoring, analysis and evaluation of the aid we deliver. Evaluation and feedback allows to us respond and to make key decisions about improvement and change, ensuring we continue to make a sustainable and positive impact on the young lives we help.

BCF has connected some of the poorest remote areas in Bali with the rest of the world via the internet. We’ve equipped schools with computer rooms and subsequently enabled a generation of students to develop vital digital literacy. In 2019 the digital curriculum was expanded to cover business and entrepreneurial topics as further preparation for the children’s futures.

Serving the rural community, Bali Children Foundation is continually faced with a number of challenges.  Agriculture is the way of life for many of the families BCF serve, and many parents rely on their children to help them to work the land. More often than not this comes at the expense of the children’s education.  With a high level of illiteracy amongst the poorer communities and a low appreciation for the benefits of education, school drop out numbers are high. Whilst we work diligently to maintain impressively low numbers in the schools we partner with, we never lose sight of the fact that it is the solid relationships and commitments from the parents that will ultimately keep the children in school for the full course of their education.
