“Youth Exodus: Les to Denpasar”
Told by Made Astriasih... watch a ten minute video of this personal and moving story. Made is a courageous woman, of immense sensitivity and personal strength. She has been the catalyst for our efforts to take secondary education to the Top Village in Les.
Made tells the story of her hard childhood and of her decision to leave Les once schooling finished at age 12. It is a story of survival and hard work. She is now dedicated to help the village educate children beyond the age she was when she left school, which is still the norm today.
