Global Village Foundation. Bali. 12th January, 2018
Putu Suprianto, is a bright but shy, young 13 year old boy from Kekeran Village in North Bali He suffered a seizure as a young child which left him physically disabled. Mentally he is still 100% but as a result of his disabilities he has never been to school, He still suffers occasional epilepsy. His mother died when he was very young, and his Father works full time as a Minibus driver between Denpasar & Singaraja to support the family. Young Putu is cared for by his 16 year old elder sister. Global Village were very pleased to provide a new wheelchair to Putu just three weeks ago on December 23rd. Today we delivered to him a Laptop computer in a project we operate jointly with Adopt-a-school (Perth & Bali) providing refurbished Laptops to disabled & disadvantaged children in North Bali. His sister (Having already taught him to read) will help young Putu develop the computer skills that he is so very keen to learn. We will continue to assist him, upgrading his computer when required, and as his proficiency increases.
Anyone who has a laptop they no longer need and would like to donate it to this wonderful project, please phone Sherryn Reid on 9355.5505 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
