In other words, by giving children with a disability the opportunity to work on their physical as wel educational development, we targeting to create a bigger chance for these children to become “READY” to take “ACTION” to participate in the society to their fullest potentials

Rehabilitation

Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy and Group Therapy are the base of our efforts to create progress in the development of approx 170 children annually. In every therapy session conducted in our ‘Bale Terapi’, we place the emphasis on the parent involvement as the main key in the child’s development progress.

Education

Our Special School ‘Pelangi LombokCare is combating the elimination of inequalities in education which are still a commen issue in Lombok. Our teachers are giving full attention to their capabilities, interests and talents instead of focussing on a disability. After all, the world needs all kinds of minds, they colour a rainbow of possibilities.

Other Child Supporting Projects

Clubfoot Project

A child born with a clubfoot should not become permanently physical disabled. Though worldwide there are still so many clubfoot-cases being left untreated, so is the case in Lombok. We are striving to support these children and their families to get the treatment they need.

Nutrition

Nutrition is very important in the stage of child development. Fulfilment of useful nutrients as a source of energy and immune processes is a basic necessity which many families can’t live up to due to socio-economic circumstances.

Therapeutic AIDS & Mobility Tools

Accessibility is one of the many issues children with a disability have to face. Finding suitable wheelchairs, walkers, orthetics and prosthetics and therapeutic materials in Lombok is like searching for a needle in a haystack, though this doesn’t make the tools and aids less needed.

Out Reach

Our Out Reach Rehabilitation Program is set up to reach out to children in rural and remote villages who have no possibilities to reach our foundation. Real, sustainable community change requires the initiative and engagement of community members. 

Vocational Skills

Our Vocational Skills Program is focused on providing training and new skills for children or young adults  with a disability which they can use to actively participate in society. LombokCare’s Vocational Skills include crafting, computer, painting, sewing, cooking, farming and more.

Medical Support

The majority of children with disabilities have a history of congenital diseases or are susceptible to diseases that can hinder development and even worsen the child’s condition. Our team does not hesitate to provide assistance and decrease the burden for those special cases.

– We empower their families –

Parents are the main keys in these children’s’ lives. Children should not be separated from their parents unless they are not being properly looked after. Our goal is to empower their parents with the knowledge and skills they need in order for them to support and guide their child in their  physical, mental, spiritual and educational development. 

Projects For Their Families

therapy TRAINING for PARENTs

This therapy training program given by the therapist to parents about in therapeutic procedures / techniques according to the type of therapy and the needs of each child as a basis for carrying out simple therapy exercises at home. The training are done in special sessions, during the therapy session for the child and in parent consultation sessions.

Family sharing sessions

These are all about parents or other family members getting to share their experiences, feelings and problems about their child’s development in small groups consisting of max. 10 parents. In smaller groups sharing will feel more familiar, secure and in-depth which makes it easier for parents to open up and connect with others. 

Family Support Events

Through our family support events we aim to provide assistance in the form of emotional support, knowledge about guiding and motivating children with a disability, improving and maintaining family relationships, as well as other support related to issues or challenges faced by many children with a disability in society, by inviting experts of any kind.

– We engage communities –

Throughout all of our activities, we aim to increase awareness of limiting beliefs on disabilities and about the beauty of uniqueness. We believe in the power of mutual responsibilities which is very much needed for these children to get out of their isolation.

Projects For Communities

community Sharing sessions

Knowledge, experiences, skills or stories, they all have a great value in striving for inclusiveness. We love to connect people, whether it’s individuals, groups, communities or organisations, magic happens when these get to share any of the above. 

workshops

As a follow up after community sharing sessions, we are open to provide catchy and touching workshops as an effort to convey a basic of understanding about disabilities, accessibility and inclusion issues for any community striving towards inclusion.

International day for persons with disabilities

Every 3rd of December is a momentum for the world community to be more aware of issues experienced around disabilities and to to support persons with disabilities to get their rights, promote equality, and provide opportunities for participation in all aspects of state and community life.

inclusive events
