Kim was living in Bali and volunteering, working with mothers and children who were begging on the streets. She started using YouTube videos to teach the mothers how to make crafts that they could sell at the market, so they would have a sustainable income. Kim continued volunteering until the refuge she was working with had to shut down. She rented a one-room shack to continue the critical, life-saving work of getting mothers and children off the streets. That’s when the Bali Street Mums Project was born.
Kim founded the Bali Street Mums project in 2014. Bali Street Mums provides desperately needed resources including shelter, clothing, education, basic health care and food to the impoverished women and children of Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia.
