The 100 cell phone donation program to help disadvantaged children learn in the midst of the pandemic from the Surya Widya Kerthi Foundation owned by SPG Negeri Denpasar alumni fellowship, initiated by Prof. Wayan Arka was delayed in 2021, considering the Covid 19 pandemic situation that has not yet ended.
When the situation allowed, before the implementation of the community activity and mobility restriction (PPKM), on June 17, 2021, the Surya Widya Kerthi Foundation team decided to continue this activity so that the hiatus would not be too long. Our targets this time were disadvantaged students in the Pacung area, Tejakula District, Buleleng Regency, Bali.
The event began with praying together at Ponjok Batu Temple and social service through the delivery of basic needs to the priests and custodians of Ponjok Batu Temple.
The next agenda was the handover of a cellphone to the 6th-grade student named Putu Widi Adnyana who studies at SDN No. 3 Pacung, Tejakula District, Buleleng Regency. His father worked as a sharecropper farmer.
The other student who received a cell phone for his online learning was a 5th-grade student named Putu Darma Yadnya who attended SDN No. 3 Pacung, Tejakula District, Buleleng Regency. Similar to Putu Widi’s father, Putu Darma’s father is also a sharecropper farmer and has received house renovation assistance from the government.
On this auspicious occasion, the foundation team also handed over second-hand decent clothes to the local communities in need.
The last activity of the day was a home visit to the house of one of the students who received the cellphone donation. This was done to check and ensure that the donation was really on target. The student’s parents are indeed financially disadvantaged, but their child is diligent and an achiever. Considering that this is still in the pandemic period, All activities were carried out with a very strict health protocol.
