In late April, student members of the Water for Life Group from Bali International School travelled to the village of Ban, in East Bali on the foothills the sacred Mt. Agung. The trip represented the culmination of a number of months of fundraising and the active involvement of students who worked on the construction of cubang - the local term for an in-ground concrete water tank. Working with the East Bali Poverty Project, students spent a day moving dirt, mixing cement and lining the walls of the cubing with concrete. In the words of one of the students, "it was hard, but rewarding work."

Water for Life is a team project operated as a part of the school's Global Citizenship Program which allows students to initiate and lead service-learning activities.

The Water For Life Group's current project aims to assist areas of Bali that receive limited amounts of rainfall. In addition to raising awareness about the plight of people living in impoverished areas, the students also raised funds for the construction of cubangs needed to collect and store water. The group managed to organize school-based events and other activities to raise Rp.5,036,000 (US$572).

Plans are to continue the Water for Life program in 2012, bring water to another remote and dry region of the island.
