Meet the Team

Kim Farr

Founder

Kim has worked for eight years with impoverished children and mothers in Bali.  She comes from New Zealand .  When she arrived in Bali eight years ago she was deeply troubled to see children and mothers begging on busy roads late at night. Children suffering malnutrition,  abuse and illnesses.  She has since committed her life to aiding these children and their mothers.
 
She found a house next to the slums where many of these mothers and children live in shacks.  The house is now a home for the children and mothers that need intensive care and protection.  It is also a food / medical aid centre and school which supports over 80 children , 32  mothers and many babies.
 
Bali Street Mums received a decrees from the Human Rights Ministry of Indonesia 3 years ago.

Children’s Education and Mothers empowerment Coordinator

Lufti works tirelessly to ensure that all the children can receive an education.The problem for most of the children is they do not have the opportunity to go to school in their younger years as they are working on the streets.Often we find children begging or trafficked older than nine or ten years of age.Lufti must ensure they can read and write before they can enter a formal school.
Lufti also works with the mothers . The mothers have never had the opportunity to go to school and so Lufti teaches them to read and write, life skills and training.
