Escaping Poverty” EBPP featured in the April 2015 issue of NOW! Bali winkels

In this April 2015 issue, NU! Bali speaks to David Booth, founder of East Bali Poverty Project, to hear his story and learn more about the works of the organization.

David was born into a poor family in England. At school, he worked hard and kept on thinking how he could make his life better. With his passion for fixing things and his excellent school grades, David received an opportunity to study civil engineering. With this learned expertise, he joined a big construction company in London, which took him all around the world. Yet, none of these were anywhere he could call home, until, in 1988 he landed on Indonesian shores.

I stepped into David’s office; the yellow-painted walls were busy with maps, papers and books. I approached his desk- it was difficult to tell whether the interview had already started or not because as soon as I sat down he quickly began talking about the East Bali Poverty Project! I had an inspiring discussion with David; I could really see his passion.

David, in 1998 you established the East Bali Poverty Project. How did it all begin?
