The East Bali Poverty Project (EBPP) is a non-profit organisation established in 1998 by a British resident of Bali.
From education as a starting base, we have grown and are running various environmental initiatives that harness human and natural resources for mutual benefit to improve living ecosystems, provide sustainable food sources for thousands of people, provide sustainable livelihoods for the present and future, and ensure the preservation of the local environment and ecosystems.
With the philosophy of "helping people to help themselves", all programmes are designed as models that can be replicated, and executed by local people who transfer knowledge directly, and appropriate technology within their communities.
• To empower illiterate and malnourished children through relevant education, improved nutrition, and basic stay-healthy principles; and
• To reduce poverty and promote culturally sensitive, sustainable development within impoverished rural communities that have little or no choice to alleviate their own plight; and
• To harness human and natural resources for mutual benefit by the reforestation of land devastated by the massive eruption of Mt. Agung in 1963, which denuded thousands of hectares.
• To improve the living ecosystmens, provide a sustainable food forest for the thousands of villagers, provide sustainable livelihoods for present and future, and ensure rain water is captured and conserved for the benefit of the land, nature, ecosystems, and most of all the people.
• To provide integrated and relevant education for children as a foundation for future empowerment;
• To improve nutrition through a nutritious school meal and education for future growth;
• To ensure better health through health education, improved nutrition and hygiene;
• To eliminate iodine deficiency among children and reproductive-age women;
• improve farmland organically for long term food security and eventual self-reliance.
• Sustainable Agricultural Development: Organic Vegetable Farming for Nutrition and Eventual Income from Sales
• Education: Integrated education programmes for illiterate children; Secondary School Scholarships
