Little Miracles Abroad
As you probably know by now – we love kids and equipping them for a great start in life. Little Miracles have partnered with and financially support through the donation of some profits three organisations that are making a difference in young lives in Bali, Indonesia and Rwanda. They are each working to give hope, dignity and purpose to young children in difficult circumstances. Check out our Latest News.
The Bali Life Foundation, founded by Brad and Siska Little, provide a children’s home for 5 – 15 year olds who have been orphaned, abandoned or rejected. They currently house 20 children from a variety of backgrounds and places in Indonesia, including four Indonesian staff. They are working towards developing a fully sustainable property and currently grow fruit and vegies and keep a chicken coup.
Brad and Siska recognised the need for these children to develop skills for future employment. They also run training workshops where the children learn English, IT, agriculture, cooking, music, art, dance and sport.
Since 2010 Little Miracles have been sending teams over to Bali to teach English classes to the children, including the Teach Your Toddler to Read program and more advanced English classes.

Compassion empowers children to live lives free from poverty and work in child development and advocacy in 26 developing countries. They take a holistic approach and look at the spiritual, economic, social, physical and emotional development of each child. Compassion work closely with local churches who administer and operate a child development centre in the local community.
Little Miracles sponsor eight children from the mountainous community of Pudak Payang, in Indonesia with a population of around 500,000. The primary ethic group is Java and the most common language is Javanese. Most adults work as day labourers earning around US$94 per month. The community has electricity, clean water and telephone but need life skills training and employment opportunities.
As part of our sponsorship, these children receive nutritional support, health care, help with school supplies and fees, key life skills and vocational training and Christian teaching.
Our Little Miracles children regularly send drawings and craft to our sponsor children, along with a letter from us. They learn that there are children around the world, just like them and that we can help them.
