Our partner, the Protestant Church of Bali, has been training Wayan and his family to breed and sell goats. The income has kept the children in school and food on the family table. But COVID-19 is hitting Bali hard – there have been many deaths, some among our partner workers, and there’s limited access to vaccines. With tourism decimated by the pandemic, and the economy in ruins, Wayan and other families are right on the edge of despair.
Your gifts can help Wayan and others find ways to get their products to market using online communities; you can help keep their children in school and provide support for them to weather the COVID storm.
Paramjit was struggling to keep food on the table for her family until she was offered the chance to train as an education assistant with our partner, the Church of North India. For the past few years she’s been working in a Homework Centre in Amritsar to help children from the Dalit caste make the most of the education they desperately need to find jobs. Lockdowns closed schools and wiped out the employment of local families who are drivers, domestic workers and road side stall holders. Paramjit has continued to support children by visiting their homes to help them gain online access, and is now back teaching in socially distanced settings.
Your gifts can help support Paramjit, the children in the homework centres and their families as they try to keep their heads above water in the midst of the pandemic.
