FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Can We Visit Our Sponsor Child?

You certainly can! You are encouraged to visit your sponsor child/children when you visit their wonderful home of Bali.
Each child that is sponsored knows of and is very grateful to their sponsor/s. Visiting them is a fantastic way for them to know you personally and build a friendship. It is also a great opportunity for you to meet the child that brings joy to your life, knowing that you are truly helping them in a way that will benefit them in the future.

Who Is Responsible for the Project?

The Bali Kids Sponsorship Project is run jointly between the Rotary Clubs of Swan Valley in Australia, and Bali-Denpasar in Bali. It is registered with Rotary Australia World Community Service Ltd (RAWCS Project No. 54-2010-11) and as such all donations are fully tax-deductible in Australia. A.C.N 003 44 264.

How Do I get to the School?

Here's an adventure in itself sometimes!!
Most drivers and taxis will know the where-abouts of the schools.
If you have a portable GPS with you click here for co-ordinates of each school.

Can I Correspond with My Sponsor Child?

You certainly can and this is always encouraged. Written letters can be forwarded to our postal address or alternatively you can email your letters to us. We will then collect all letters together and they will be sent in a batch to Bali for distribution. As they will be taken over in hand luggage – we cannot accept presents with the letters. This is the most reliable method of mail exchange as unfortunately the Balinese Postal system doesn't always work!

Can I Buy Presents for My Child?

You sure can. Please be mindful of what you buy though, as it may set a precedent for future gifts your sponsor child or others around may expect with each visit.
The biggest NO-NO is lollies or sweets of any kind. This will damage the children's teeth. The water in Bali does not have the additives we find in our water. As a result their teeth are not hardened. This will obviously cause great grief with Dental visits on the Dental Health Day.
Colouring-In books, pencils, texta's, picture books… a tennis ball even. These make for great gifts that the kids can enjoy on their own or share with family and friends. Clothes are also a bonus and can be new or good quality second hand.

Is Sponsorship Tax Deductible?

Yes. As the project is registered with Rotary Australia World Community Service Ltd, all donations are tax-deductible. Feel the need to give a little extra? You can always consider the following possibilities:

  • A white board for a classroom. Quite a number have been donated but all classrooms could do with more. You can even have your name on it "Donated by …….". The whiteboards cost around $60.
  • Whiteboards markers - they cost a lot more than chalk!
  • A donation towards extra computers or supplies
  • Books about your country's flora, fauna and landscape.
  • Sporting equipment such as tennis balls, basketballs, footballs, etc.
  • Or you could sponsor another child!

Remember……a gift to the school not only helps the teachers, but also the present and future students.

How Can I Make Payments?

Recently we have changed our banking system and now offer three payment methods via following the secure payment link on our website: www.balischoolkids.org/support-us.  You can pay by credit card, internet banking transfer or by cheque.  Your receipt will be emailed instantly and contain all the required details relating to your chosen payment method (ie: BSB and Account Number).  You can use the requests section to specify whether you wish to sponsor a new little boy or girl and inform us of any other details such as if you are depositing money for a food parcel
