At Bonito, we are so grateful for the growth of our business and we believe that we (and all organizations) are responsible for sharing success! Every quarter we go to a different destination to donate backpacks with school materials and support communities around the world.
Additionally, all of Bonito Jewelry is handmade by talented local artisans in Bali, Indonesia, supporting full time jobs and the continuation of this artistic tradition.
In March 2019, we visited three schools: School SDN 5 Sigar Penjalin, School Yaysan Al Furqon NW Bayan and School SDN 5 Sigar Penjalin, in North of Lombok.
These schools, like many others, had their buildings destroyed by 2018's earthquake. Given that this is a very poor region and community, and that the government's help is insufficient, most of these children didn't have any text books, shoes, access to filtered water, and many other basic supplies.
Inside the backpacks that we donated, each child received: pencils and pens, text books, note books, colouring books, reusable stainless steel water bottle, bamboo straws and bamboo toothbrush. We also gave water filters to each school, so they could have access to clean water everyday while attending classes.
We had an incredible support from Rotary Club of Canggu and Tugu Hotels, they provided staff to help translate and educate the children and teachers about the harm of plastic and importance of nature.
We couldn't have done this campaign without you, Bonito People, who chose to wear our jewelry and give back to children in need. The future belongs to the youth, thank you for joining us!
Next up, our team will be making their way to Brazil in August 2019 to donate backpacks to students and support local communities in need through an educational program.
These campaigns are not possible without you, Bonito People, who chose to wear our jewelry and give back. Thank you for joining us!
