Maryanne exclaimed to Komang Kurniawan, EBPP Chairman & Team Leader, before departing: “EBPP’s programs are fantastic!” which gives us such a warm feeling of pride; knowing she will support our children.

On Thursday the 26th of November, Maryanne and Alan, a lovely couple from the Rotary Club of Carnarvon, Western Australia, visited EBPP’s projects to have a better understanding of EBPP’s projects and the life of communities living there. They had already made a donation that Maryanne raised with her fellow Carnarvon Rotarians.

Starting off in our Ban village HQ, Komang (Team Leader), Ketut (Bamboo Team Leader), and Ardika (Deputy Team Leader) escorted Maryanne and Alan on a tour of some key projects, starting with visits to some Darmaji families who benefitted from the recent toilets project. They then dropped into Darmaji School to share some lessons with our students followed by the dusty dirt track drive to our Jatituhu School.

Like the children, Maryanne and Alan were also excited and filled with joy to see them all.

It is always a great pleasure to have new donors visiting our village because when they witness the impacts of our projects firsthand, most do pledge to support us in any way they can.

Thank you so much Maryanne and Alan for your visiting us.
