Use the zoom in and out bar on the left of the map ( the “+” or “-” ) to see where the Orphanage is in relation to the rest of the island of Bali. Point “B” on the map is the entrance to the Orphanage. (entrance is on the right hand side of the street -see photo of entrance below) Point “A” is the main turnabout with the huge statue in Kuta. Click on the “View larger Map” link to customize your map and then click on the “Map” view as apposed to the “Satellite” view that is shown here. Once you have customized your directions from where you will be staying, simply print out 2 copies for you and your driver. It is good to have a close up satellite view printed out for the last bit once you get to the “unknown road” part of the map. This will help especially on your first trip. Just follow the landmarks such as buildings, rice fields etc.
If you are lucky enough to visit Bali – we highly recommended a visit to the Orphanage in Tuka. It is not the easiest place to find, so we put together this page to help you on your way. It is best to plan at least half a day if you would like to visit the children and the staff. If you go on a Saturday or Sunday, there are better chances to meet more of the children as they are in school during the week. If a weekend is not an option, then after 1pm during the week is also a good time to meet nearly everyone. If you would like to just meet the youngest of the crew – then any weekday during normal school hours is when about 10 to 15 of kids from around 3 yrs old up to 8 will be there.
