BEATS have started a new partnership with YASERA, a charity working in 4 areas of Indonesia, helping to improve the
position of impoverished, vulnerable, disaster-affected people by addressing the root cause of their vulnerability. YASERA
does this by educating families about key health messages to alleviate malnutrition, campaigning against child marriage,
and educating families about organic farming, financial management and business development.
One project works in villages in Bali, close to an active volcano (Mt Agung). BEATS are providing funds to enable YASERA
to train vulnerable families over an 18 month period to raise awareness of the need for disaster preparedness and
