SDG 17 - Partnerships for the goals

Since 2020, we have been supporting the PKP Community Center in central Bali. The founder, Ibu Sari, gives people in need, mainly women from many other islands in Indonesia, a job, a task, to learn step by step to stand on their own feet again.

Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, many supporters of the PKP Community Centre have also dropped out. Thanks to you, chanceforchange is able to pay three important women at the PKP Community Centre a monthly salary for their work (see below).

Ibu Sari's work relies on donations. Our monthly support relieves her a lot so that she can concentrate more on her various social business activities (sewing, catering, shop).

We regularly receive small reports from Ibu Sari, e.g. about the tireless work of the dedicated Ibu Ari in teaching the children of needy families from the village of Selasih and the children of traumatised women from the other Indonesian islands.

It is nice to see how partnerships can also contribute to education.

Ibu Ni Putu Indianingsih
Her nickname and better known as Ibu Chicken is a very good cook and runs the PKP Community Centre's in-house catering. We have enjoyed the delicious food of the PKP CC ladies a few times. An authentic Bali menu lovingly and freshly prepared for the heart and the eye.
Ibu Chicken was born in Sulawesi/Indonesia and has been in Bali since she was three years old. Her parents have already died and she has no contact with her siblings.
PKP CC is her new family.

Ibu Ay. Dwianna Al Hakim
Her Christian name is Ibu Ari. She came to the PKP Community Centre 2 years ago because she had to separate from her husband due to domestic violence. She accepted to leave her children and family in Jakarta. Ibu Ari writes award-winning books, she teaches the children in the village of Selasih and organises the sewing workshop and the sales shop for them. A multi-talented woman of Muslim faith in Hindu Bali.
In the meantime, she is back in touch with her family, and her family knows that she is doing well at PKP CC.

Ibu Ni Made Puspawati
Her call name is Ibu Dia. She is a Balinese woman directly from the village of Selasih. She has two children whom she takes care of alone. Her relationship with her husband from the village is unhealthy and has had an impact on her mental and physical health. She has been working in a resort, but quit as she prefers to be near her children. The PKP CC right in her neighbourhood gives her the opportunity to learn new things, thus becoming more confident. Ibu Dia is responsible for the sale of handmade products, cooks for catering orders and likes to dance.
