“I want to become a politician because I want to help people in my region.”--Jordi, 19 year-old participant in our work-study program The Lagu Damai Foundation, based in Bali, Indonesia, provides educational growth opportunities for local youths and adults. The foundation conceives and develops socially responsible projects based upon the core values of unfolding the HeartSelf–Intelligence, consciousness of joy, and personal empowerment leading to increased self-esteem and self reliance, all the while working in co-operation with the environment, community, earth, and humanity as a whole. Nineteen year-old Jordi has been working at our center for several months. You can find him working in our garden in the early morning hours, after which he rushes off to Denpasar city to attend Ngurah Ray University, where he studies social politics. Jordi is one of ten children from a very poor family. Because he is alone here—his family resides on Sumba Island—he sometimes is very homesick and he dreams about meeting with his family soon. He would like to become a politician to return to the Sumba region and help people.
