What is the Bali Dyslexia Foundation?
The Bali Dyslexia Foundation is an organization of people sharing an insatiable thirst for learning improvement, personal growth, and to remove barriers to achievement for dyslexic students in Bali, Indonesia.
What is the problem?
The population of Bali, Indonesia is over 4.2 million. By catering for a rapidly growing population, there are hundreds of underfunded schools with little or no material to practice inclusive education.
In rural and remote parts of Indonesia, such as North Bali, early childhood development services that would possibly identify dyslexia are either absent, inaccessible or unaffordable to most children, meaning they miss out on valuable early learning and development opportunities that their urban counterparts in the south receive.
What’s the aim?
Bali Dyslexia Foundation is proud to be Bali’s first free service offering teacher training, student assessment, ongoing support, and student scholarships specifically for students with dyslexia.
What is The Chance Project’s involvement?
We have met with and befriended the Founder and a Trustee Board Member of the organization. We highly believe in what they are doing and want to shout it from a rooftop. Our goal is to get their message heard through our personal skills and platforms.
Not-for-profit organizations often lack resources to get the whole job done. Many times, it is a one-man show running all facets of the organization – or, in the case of Bali Dyslexia Foundation, a one-woman show (for the most part). That is why these organizations rely heavily on compassionate volunteers with qualified skills to pitch-in.
With The Chance Project’s collective abilities to create content, we’ve combined our talents to come up with an array of media for Bali Dyslexia Foundation to spread its reach. Take a look!

How can I help?
First and foremost, you can educate yourself on dyslexia as a learning disability. Many get the wrong assumptions about children with dyslexia and it’s time to set the record straight. Take a look at some of the content we’ve prepared for the foundation:
Next, you can help the situation in Bali directly by donating to or sponsoring a child apart of the Bali Dyslexia Foundation.
I don’t have a lot of money to spare, what else can I do?
That’s fine. Neither do we! So, what you can do is spread awareness! Support the cause on social media, educate others about what you’ve learned in the articles above, and you can even get involved directly with the organization through their intern program.
How do I intern?
You can contact the organization directly and if that doesn’t work, reach us and we will see if we can help!
