They’ve Got to be Carefully Taught

Bali Children's Project receives grant for Sex Education and HIV/AIDS from Mel Wolf Foundation (USA)


(12/13/2013)

Important sex education, including HIV/AIDS awareness, will be provided for Balinese youth throughout 2014 because of a generous grant from the Mel Wolfe Foundation of Berkeley, California (USA) to the Bali-based charity Bali Children’s Project (BCP).

HIV/AIDS is a growing problem on the island of Bali where the economy is dependent on international and domestic tourism with health authorities estimating there may be as many as 26,000 island residents are infected, including an alarming number of women and children.

The highest rates of new HIV/AIDS infections occur among young men in their 20s contracted through heterosexual contact with commercial sex workers. In Bali this has resulted in concomitant high rates of infections among their young wives and their unborn children.

The BCP program of sex education and HIV/AIDS awareness aims to forearm young Balinese with information on how to prevent infection before they become sexually active members of the community.

The program of workshops providing sex education and how to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS is an ongoing initiative of the Bali Children’s Project (BCP), with regular training taking place in Gianyar, Singaraja and Bangli.

The additional funding provided by Mel Wolf Foundation will allow the development of more sophisticated teaching materials and the inclusion of more schools and villages across the entire island.

Linda Moselle Venter, a director of BCP, praised the support of the Mel Wolf Foundation saying: “The Foundation’s contribution will allow BCP to continue and expand a program that we know from first hand experience saves the lives of young Balinese and avoids the tragic social upheaval that results from the occurrence of an HIV/AIDS infection in a young Balinese household. This contribution, together with other support and the tireless dedication of our volunteers will help Bali turn the corner defeating the growing scourge of HIV/AIDS on the Island.”

Based in New Jersey (USA), the Mel Wolf Foundation benefits philanthropy, voluntarism and providing support to a number of Bali-based community initiatives to aid children, young mothers and programs for HIV/AIDS prevention.

About Bali Children’s Project

Bali Children’s Project (BCP) is a tax-exempt non-profit charitable foundation registered in California and Bali, Indonesia. BCP sponsors the educational programs for hundreds of Balinese children; creates and supports kindergartens and pre-Kindergartens; and provides classroom support, teacher training and special workshops for schools and villages. More support is needed.

Although incorporated in 2001, BCP has helped children in Bali for almost 20 years. It is dedicated to education as a means of improving lives of disadvantaged young people. Founded on the belief that children empowered to realize their potential, will enrich their own lives, their villages and, subsequently, contribute to the world.

Bali Children’s Project serves children throughout Bali and currently supports education completion programs for over 200 primary and high school students. Active in poor communities, BCP sponsorship programs often spell the difference between staying in school and dropping out. An active volunteer program also goes into villages to teach English and give specialized teacher training workshops.
