Building U.S.-Indonesia Mutual Understanding Since 1994

Fundraiser for BASABali

Om swastiastu:

I wanted to send you a quick note to let you know that we just launched a crowdsourcing campaign to keep the Balinese language alive for tomorrow’s children.  Please help get the campaign going by sharing this link with your networks (and please consider donating yourself, we need 40 unique donors and $5000 to reach our first threshold!).

As you might have heard, BASAbali was named as this year’s winner of the International Linguapax Award for innovations in bringing together scholars and community members to work together to take action to strengthen Balinese while there is still a solid base of speakers.

With your help, we can take this work to the next level within Bali and be better poised to help other language communities as well:

Tomorrow’s children are depending on us.
