Welcome to YKPA (Yayasan Kasih Peduli Anak), known as “Bali Street Kids Project”. We are a nonprofit organization giving disadvantaged children loving care, education, and skills they need to grow.

The YKPA family is made up of two orphanage/homes. Our first home in Denpasar is for older kids. The second home is an hour drive away in Tabanan for younger children. We also have a school for street kids in a slum of Kuta.

Your support means so much to them. Come by for a visit. Let us know ahead of time, if you can, by emailing care4child@ykpa.org. For more information, see our “How to Help” page.


Bali Street Kids School Project

For the past 10 years, YKPA has been providing informal elementary classes to street kids. These kids have no other alternative for education. Weve built and opened a bamboo school in one of Kuta’s slum-like areas where kids come for informal education that is government authorized. The kids can advance through elementary education.

The school building has an upstairs rental for volunteers, visitors, or anyone. Ask us for details:  care4child@ykpa.org

Natural Disasters

In 2018, the YKPA team brought food and basic supplies to the traumatized villagers who lost everything after the deadliest earthquake in the history of Lombok. Indonesia is prone to natural disasters which destroy and displace local families, and YKPA always aims to provide extra support. We’ll update this page as needed; in the meantime, you’re more than welcome to donate to our Relief Fund.

Our disadvantaged kids in Bali need extra classes. Their buildings require repair & renovationand office staff have to undergo training. Media attention and online fundraising are desperately needed in order to help us reach these goals. If you’re hoping to get involved, tell us about your skills at ykpaoffice@gmail.com.

YKPA teenagers, as well as our younger children with disabilities requiring therapy, live at the shelter we built in Denpasar. They attend schools in the area, have fun and build self-esteem through extra classes and curriculars.

YKPA Orphanage Tabanan

In the rice fields of central Bali, our kids under 12 live in a safe and supportive environment, focused on loving care and lots of playtime.



Our village moms love hand-crafting these fair-trade dolls with passion and purpose, which make unique gifts for friends and family. Currently, these dolls are only available at a few shops in Bali, in the USA online, and at our Denpasar childrens home. Please email about these:  care4child@gmail.com
