Wish List!

 

In an effort to help you decide how you can best contribute to the needs of the students at YPAC we have compiled a list of items which are used frequently and which can also be bought locally. Items bought locally are usually cheaper and they are familiar to the students. Please do not feel you must bring large quantities.


Every little helps and also keeping in mind that storage space is limited.
There are approximately 50 students at YPAC. 7 girls and 10 boys are residential.
 

If you have any questions before you visit please contact us through the Facebook group

CLOTHING

Our students range in ages from 6 to 22! All shapes and sizes! The residential girls are from age 12 to 18 and the boys are from 13 to adult. While we appreciate all clothes that are donated, it’s always good to get something new out of the packet as well as pre-used.  The girls prefer leggings to shorts. Boys’ socks and shoes and underwear are always on the list.
Clothes for younger children can be used for brothers and sisters and of course our day students.

 

BEDDING

The mattresses measure 90cm x 200cm x 15 cm so please check the size before you buy! Bedding is very expensive in Bali so anything brought from overseas is wonderful …..if you have the luggage space and weight!! If we have the choice please avoid white bedding!! And yes the girls love pink!!!

 

Fitted sheets
Top sheets
Waterproof mattress covers
Pillow cases standard

 

 

If there are any other items you would like to donate please check first for suitability. Perhaps if we are not in need then we can suggest some other organisation where it could be put to good use.
