Our Core Values
Where your support will go
Welcome to Ketewel Bali, Indonesia. Ketewel is know for its simple, slow paced lifestyle where the common job is fishing or farming. Ketewel is also unique because it is removed from the tourist centers you usually find in Bali. There is a very strong sense of community with one another here in this humble village. To be from Ketewel, means you are a devout Balinese Hindu. In Ketewel, there are 9 schools ranging from kindergarten to high school. We are so excited to serve this community by partnering alongside each of these schools and providing school scholarships to children.
Although Ketewel is not directly involved in tourism, their economy as a whole is entirely dependent on foreign tourism. In March 2020, Bali shut its international airport, not allowing foreigners to come to Bali. Hotels, restaurants, and tourism died in Bali, leaving the demand for many of there sources that people from Ketewel would offer, non-existent. This has created extreme economic hardship on families. he common family survives off of less than $200/month. So you can imagine, every dollar makes a difference.
Our hope at Know Indo, is not only to provide for their tangible, immediate needs, but also provide an opportunity for every single family to know more about their purpose. Only through partnership with you can we accomplish this!
One of the immediate negative impacts with no clear solution has been paying for school fees for their children. School is not free in Indonesia. A family must set aside about $25/month for each kid for school fees, uniform, and school curriculum. During COVID-19, all kids had to study from home which required a smart phone and data, which is very costly. This has created an impossible situation for families all throughout Indonesia.
Through your generous donation, what was once impossible is now possible. By donating you are giving these families there sources to get their children back in school and get them working towards a better future.
