Update of your child’s progress
OVERVIEW:
Komang Juniari, born 25th June 2001,  was introduced to us at the Semara Putra orphanage in Klungkung in 2007 when she was aged 6 years old.

She was a sweet little girl, really very nervous and shy, and had hearing challenges.  As is often the case, the children's family place them at the orphanage, or at least have them attend during the day time - depending on the families location and situation, in order they might receive help with their medical challenges.  The families usually have no hope of being able to afford the specialist
treatment they require.

Juniari was sponsored by a family from Perth who have actively followed her progress since, keeping in contact, sending little gifts for their Juniari and genuinely caring about her wellbeing and progress.  (We are hopeful this new website will play a big role in being able to give regular updates on all the children).

Having been fitted with her two behind-the-ear hearing aids and commencing in our program, Juniari now receives not only Speech Therapy at the orphanage home, but also attends schooling within the orphanage.  She also has her ears and hearing aids checked monthly when Lumina, our hearing specialist team visit, to check everything is going ok, and also to supply new batteries, and do any maintenance required on the childrens' aids.

Over time Juniari's confidence has grown significantly and it's now really pleasing we often see a gorgeous smile on her face, which was pretty difficult to find in the earlier stages.  She is a beautiful, sweet, young girl and plays happily with the other children and really enjoys the close friendships and bonding of her little orphanage 'brothers and sisters'.  There is a group of young girls of similar age at Klungkung, and they are all very close, it's beautiful to see.
There is another young girl with very similar looks, and we need to be careful going through the photos, as it can be difficult at times to tell them apart.

Bikabele is really very happy with Juniari's progress so far in the program, and her personal growth of confidence that she has gained from receiving the gift of sound into her life.  She seems to be a very bright young girl, and her ability to hear and learn to talk, has helped her in so many ways, that we can only see good things for her.  For the time being Juniari will continue with her speech therapy.  The children love to revert to their familiar method of communicating when they are outside of any lessons - due to the fact there are hearing impaired children at all levels of learning to talk, so it just becomes easier for them...however, Bikabele will continue to give Juniari speech therapy in hopes that eventually talking becomes the natural way
for her to communicate.

Now 11 years old, Juniari is growing up, and we certainly look forward to watching her "grow in every way" with her confidence, self-esteem and abilities, whilst knowing she has some good opportunities offered to her at Semara Putra through various programs and with her education.  At this stage, we can't help but think everything is working to plan, and she should have a good outcome.
