In 2014, the community in Sengkol Mantang village, Batukliang sub-district in Central Lombok District lobbied the village government to allocate a portion of the village funds to support Nurul, who was born with a disability that affected her legs. The village government accepted the community proposal and allocated a portion of the 2014 village funds to provide her with crutches. In 2016, the village government provided additional support in the form of transportation to school. With the support of the community and the village government, Nurul now has the same opportunities to study as all other members of the community.
