February Month of Giving Campaign: Ayu’s story

We’re starting our February Month of Giving Campaign with a story about one of our much-loved AK participants, Ayu. Ayu lives in disability housing next to the slum in Sanur Bali. Her parents have six children. Her two older brothers, Wayan (24) and Komang (22), as well as Ayu herself have cerebral palsy, a disability which means that Ayu has difficulty communicating and walking. Until Akademi Kristus came into the kampung, Ayu and her brothers had very little stimulation in their lives. Akademi Kristus now funds specialist disability teachers to work Ayu, Wayan, Komang and other children with disabilities from two other families. Along with working on developing communication skills, language skills and improving fine motor skills, we’re also helping the local neighbourhood to recognise that these kids are of value and capable of learning. Ayu’s family hope that one day they will see Ayu walking unassisted. If you would like to support children to access the specialist disability education that Akademi Kristus provides we invite you to become a monthly donor. For $40 per month you can support children like Ayu to receive life changing education. You can become a monthly member by clicking on the donate tab on our homepage. Please note all donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.
