Men Siki (female in her 70s) lives with her granddaughter, Ni Putu Juliana Dewi, (7 years old and in Class 1 Primary School), in a hut in the middle of a field quite far from a main road and other houses. Their dwelling can only be reached on foot. Her husband died long ago.

About her grandchild: Men Siki’s daughter had a child but divorced and remarried. The child, Ni Putu Juliana Dewi, was entrusted to Men Siki.

Every morning, Men Siki accompanies Ni Juliana to school on foot. Because of the distance to the school, Men Siki waits at the school for Ni Juliana and then accompanies her home. Once home, she begins her work in the field. “The income I get from the farm is not regular. I only get money at harvest time”, she said in Balinese.

The condition of their dwelling: the floors are made of earth, the walls and roof are corrugated iron, the mattress is very worn, there is no electricity or running water, the kitchen is on the verandah.

You could assist Men Siki in one of the following ways: by providing her directly with her basic daily necessities, by giving money so that she can buy her daily needs or for her grandchild’s schooling, or by donating money for house repairs or for the construction of a modest house.

Please find below some additional information.
