SALAM meaning “Peace” was founded in 1979 as a response to the need for an orphanage in Tabanan, Bali. Our Vision is to equip and empower economically disadvantaged children physically, emotionally and spiritually for adulthood. The vision of the SALAM Founders was to provide a nurturing Christian environment for those children who came out of this situation, with a focus on providing education, but also on serving their communities.
Since then children have come from as far away as Sumba, Kalimantan and East Timor. They are not always orphans, but come because there is no alternative for schooling. For this reason most of the children return home during school breaks.
SALAM Children’s Home has the capacity for approximately 50 children to live on site and attend various primary and secondary schools in the area. Children are accepted based on their families’ economic situations. A variety of projects and activities are organized to complement the children’s formal education.
