About
BSM mission is to provide food and medical aid, schooling and support to impoverished mothers and children who are begging on the urban streets of Bali, also many who have been trafficked or suffered assault.
Project
Bali Street Mums and Kids Project
The Problem
For three generations mothers and children have come from the impoverished villages of the Karangasem region, to the urban streets to beg.  Babies begin their little lives on the polluted streets and children run up to cars late at night.  The children and mothers suffer malnutrition, illnesses and abuse. Often the children are abducted from the streets and sold to pedophiles. These children have no hope of going to school or ever getting a job to escape their poverty. These children in turn will take infants to the street and so the cycle of poverty, begging and abuse continues.
Solutions
• Food and Medical Aid. • Family planning counseling and prenatal health.

• A safe house for children and mothers who are very sick or have suffered abuse.

• Schooling for children who have spent their lives begging or selling tissues  on the streets who have never had the opportunity to go to school.  These children are made responsible to support their families, and are subjected to abuse and illness.

• By providing an education we aim to stop the cycle of poverty and empower the children.  We aid the children through school and after that into jobs and higher education, ending the cycle of poverty.

• Mothers Social Enterprise: Training to make craft and merchandise sold various shops.  This way the mothers earn a good income and no longer need to take their children to the streets to beg.
Expected Impact
Increase the capacity beyond:
• Current 50 families  with 100 children in school and 30 mothers working in Bali Street Mums Social Enterprise or Micro businesses.

• Food and medical aid provided to over 100 families each day.

• Larger impact this year with aid to mothers and children in Ubud, the Bukit and Canggu areas.
