Welcome to YKPA (Yayasan Kasih Peduli Anak), commonly known as the “Bali Street Kids Project”. We are a nonprofit organization with one mission: giving disadvantaged children the loving care, education, and skills they need to grow.
The YKPA family is made up of two orphanages. Our first location in Denpasar is for older orphans, with our second base in Tabanan is dedicated to younger children. We recently opened a third venture: our school for street kids in the slums of Kuta.
Your support means so much to them. Feel free to drop by for a visit – just let us know ahead of time, if you can, by emailing email@example.com. For more information, take a look at our “Ways to Help Out” page.
For the past 10 years, YKPA has been providing informal elementary classes to street kids as well as orphans here on the island. We just opened a a new bamboo school room in one of Kuta’s slum-like areas.
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 & renovation, and 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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. Bear with us while we troubleshoot our e-commerce platform issues, and stay tuned for the grand re-opening of our online shop.
