Puhu Global Grant Teaches Hygiene...Accompanied by Laughter
Fun can be found even when learning why we should wash our hands! Teachers from Pelangi International Standard School used an exercise that had kids fully involved, very surprised, and laughing. Putting a bit of sparkle goop on the palms of a few children’s hands and then asking them to shake hands with their fellow students, who in turn shook hands with other children, proved how easy it is to pass germs from one person to another...along with the sparkle goop!

On March 3, Project ‘Hands for Tista’ had a super terrific kick off where everyone had a great time. Aimed at giving ten poverty level families the opportunity to create a source of income, each family was given a female piglet. As the piglets reach adulthood, they’ll be introduced to a male pig whose job is to happily impregnate each of them.
Half of this next generation of piglets will then be shared with other poverty level families and, over time, MANY families will benefit from this project. What will make these pigs valuable is what they’ll be fed. These families cannot afford to buy pig feed so they will eat only what can be harvested from the local plant growth. The net result is a leaner and truly delicious pig!

We finally started a home pig farm as part of club project Hands For Tista. Having distributed 11 pigs in the village on Friday, 03 Mar 2017, the project committee expects to have bright progress soon. The families receiving pig donations have the responsibility and ownership to raise and breed those pigs at home. It might takes awhile but we are delighted to see those happy faces wanting the home pig farm development very soon. Once those pigs deliver babies, then half of the total piglets will be shared to another less fortunate families. Thus, the project will impact to more and more families in Tista.

We would treat this as an invitation to join a great opportunity to develop family pig farm. Pigs will be donated by Rotary Club of Bali Seminyak on Friday, 03 Mar 2017. The fund for this project comes from Rotary Club of Manosque in France. Besides donating pigs to the family, we would also work closely with volunteers to share knowledge the villagers to grow plants for better foods for the pig. This simply aims at generating better pork meat eventually. The pig farm is located at Tista Village, Karangasem, East Bali, approximately 1.5 hours driving. Volunteers registered are very excited to join the activity this Friday.

One of many interesting activities from the club is attending vocational trip once a month. This month, on 22 February, the vocational trip invites the club members and guests heading to the foot of Mount Agung, Karangasem. Located near Besakih Temple, this pig farm is worth to visit.
