What is your wish for this project?

This project is beginning its twelfth year and i wish to sustain it which is more of a challenge because of rising costs. It began with instruction in traditional dancing which was not possible in this poor agricultural mountain more

How did it go?

Sanggar Bintang Pelangi is a big success beginning its twelfth year. In addition to traditional dance attended by an average of 60 children, ages 3- 14, there is a Reading Club which has impacted the school's reading program in which they now include Balinese stories, not just texts. The Tree Club collects seeds of trees and plants them.A section of my farm is now called the "New Forest." The village has now declined to cut the substantial forest it owns - it is protected! more
