Achievement To Date
When the program began after the first Bali Bombing in 2002, most of the children were still young and came from lower income families. Those at university also starting working to support their families. Most of them lived in the urban areas of Denpasar, although a few lived in villages on Bali. Six families lived in East Java.
In December 2003, we were very happy to report that the injured parents of 73 children we were supporting had recovered from their injuries. We discontinued the support for these children as their parents were able to work again.
All students no longer supported by us are classified as completed. However, this does not mean that they have completed their study until university. The criteria for completion are:
- Completed higher education, a bachelor degree or a 1 to 3 years diploma degree.
- Completed senior high school and decided not to continue to higher education.
- Get married.
- Joined higher education funded by government of Indonesia as Army Academy.
- Move outside Indonesia.
The program will continue until all students finish their education through to completing university. The youngest sponsored child is expected to graduate from university in 2026.
