The Bali Orphanage

The Bali Orphanage

“Where change happens.”

The Bali Orphanage is a very special place. With your first few steps inside you begin to realize that this is not just a place for kids to sleep and eat. Lives are changed here, and not just the lives of the children. From the visitors taking a day out of their vacation to Sister Ubertine with her 66yrs of volunteer service, it is rare that someone leaves here unchanged.  It is actually very common for a person to come with the intent of giving, only to find that they leave refreshed with a brand new outlook on their own life. So please stay awhile and get to know the children and volunteers. Browse through the pictures and get a peek of what daily life is like here. Share a laugh with the kids jumping rope, or experience the priceless feeling of a “new” child cautiously extending their trust and taking your hand. Look closely and read the stories that are visible in the eyes of the children. It is our hope that you too will leave here refreshed and ready for the day ahead. Welcome to The Bali Orphanage…

    Hello we are coming to Bali this July school
    Holidays with my two children and would love
    To visit and bring the children some paints,
    Pencils and other goodies. Is it convenient
    To drop in or would you like dates when we come. We are from Perth is there any thing you could recommend us to get the children and how many are at the centre . Thank you hope you are all well , hope to hear from you soon.

    Regards Michelle Prandi and family.

  3. I recently read an article suggesting that donations made to majority of Bali’s orphanages line the pockets of the owners/directors. Also that all gifts are to be handed to the workers with the intent to pass on to the kids but are resold to make money for the staff. It is alleged that workers target poor families & offer to take their children to the orphanage with promises of food & education to only underfeed them & place them in construction work etc. The government provides orphanages in Bali 1 million rupiah per child per year in their care but this money isnt misused.
    I would like to visit a Bali orphanage but am now conflicted as to what ‘show’ I will find. Will my donations be used in the right way or am I better off going to a village & providing them with bags of rice/food etc for their families.

    • Hi briepiesa
      My name is Jo and i live in Perth, Western Australia. I have been connected to the Bali Orphanage in Tuka Bali for quite a number of years – I can assure you that every dollar that is given to this Orphanage is used to educate, feed and house the children. Over the many years that I have been visiting this particular Orphanage I have been amazed at the progress they have made towards greatly improving the living conditions, food, educational equipment and sports and other equipment for the children. Most importantly to the nuns that run this Orphanage, the children all receive an excellent education paid for by the nuns – there is no free school in Indonesia at all. If a family cannot afford to send a child to school then unfortunately they do not go to school – so this is the highest priority for the nuns. the nuns endeavour also to send to University any child that qualifies and a number of the children have commenced University, The nuns are dedicated and hard-working and certainly deserve our support. So be assured that this particular Orphanage will do everything to utilise any donations in an appropriate manner.
      Best Wishes

    • Tiffany Davenport

      My daughter is requesting shoes instead of gifts for her 7th birthday and she would like to donate them to the kids. Is this type of package ok to mail to you? If so, may we please have your mailing address. Hope to hear from you soon!

      The Davenport Girls

      • Hi Davenport Girls!!
        What a cool thing.. especially for a 7 year old!
        The kids at both orphanages in Bali are in good shape as far as shoes go. They get lots of people bringing clothes etc. on their vacations to Bali. The orphanages on Subma and Timor though, they are on very remote islands and can go many months without a single visitor. They are run by the same Franciscan Nuns – 14 orphanages in all spread out throughout the Indonesian islands. I visited both Sumba and Timor orphanages this past October for the first time. They are doing much better now, but still have a long ways to go before they are in as stable of a condition as the Bali orphanages. I put the addresses for Sumba and Timor in this blog post http://bracelets-blog.com/2011/09/25/sumba-timor-orphanages/ (this is the company we originally created to raise funds for the Bali orphanages and now have expanded to Sumba and Timor) The video of the orphanages would be worth watching with your daughter. You can see those here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLk46W1N02E
        Thank you so much for caring and 3 BIG cheers to you for raising a daughter with such a giving heart!

    Hanley

  19. Hi Dewa,

    My friend and i will be visiting Kuta in the last week of January 2012. We both have children and would do anything for them. We would love to do something for the orphanage. We would happily donate anything we can. Between us we have 4 children and and 10 nieces/nephews and would be able to bring over the clothes thaty have grown out of if suitable. But they would be smaller sizes so not sure if you are in need I also read that most of the children are in need of vitamins. Would these be better off purchased once we reach bali and if so are you able to let me know where. As for craft is chalk appropriate? We just want to help in anyway.

    Look forward to hearing from you soon
    Thanks
    Tasha

    • Hi Tasha! Forgive me if this is a duplicate as I have a feeling that we have connected already here or on facebook. Any of the items you mentioned would be great. (the chalk is a favorite for “decorating” the walls around the basketball court.) As for vitamins, the quality of what is available in Bali is not always so great, and the “good” stuff here is imported and expensive, so bringing them from where you are would be best. ANY clothes would be put to good use as the Sisters often visit remote and very poverty stricken areas of Bali. Thanks so much for helping out!

  20. Lisa and Kelsey

    Hello dewa,
    we have previously spoken to you about visiting you and staying with you for a month with the kids. is there any chance we could speak to you about some details and arrange a pick-up??
    Thanks Lisa and Kelsey

    • Lisa and Kelsey,
      I was sad to see that no-one had gotten to your question here. I hope you have been able to make contact another way. If you have not made your trip to Bali yet and I could be of help in any way, please let me know here and I’ll do my best to make it happen. Thank you for your generous offer to help.

  21. Hi Dewa,
    I am currently in Bali staying in Kuta and I would love to be able to visit you and the kids. I am travelling by myself, what do you recommend is the best way to get to the orphanage and the best times to come?
    Look forward to hearing from you 🙂

    • Hi Tanya

      Regards

  22. Hello Dewa,

    My friend and I will be in Bali next week. We hope to come visit you and the children on Monday (July 4). Will this be ok? Should I arrange a special time or can we just show up? I don’t know yet how we will be arriving. I am guessing we will hire a car to take us? I have packed some toys and outdoor games I’d like to bring to the children.
    Thank you kindly,
    Julie

    • Mrs Marie Joserevet.

      From;Mrs Marie Joserevet.

      Dearest;

      I am Mrs Marie Joserevet from United States of America. I am married to Mr. Clay Josereve who worked with a construction company in Ivory Coast for twenty Years before he died in the year 2004.We were married for fifteen years without a child. He died after a brief illness that lasted for only four days.

      Before his death we were both born again Christian. Since his death I decided not to remarry or get a child outside my matrimonial home which the Bible is against. When my late husband was alive he deposited the sum of $1.2Million with a Finance bank . Presently, this money is still in the custody of the finance bank. Recently, my Doctor told me that I would not last for the next Six months due to cancer problem. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to a church or trust worthy person that will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in.

      I want a church or God fearing someone that will use this fund for orphanages, widows, propagating the word of God and to endeavor that the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to understand that “Blessed is the hand that giveth”. I took this decision because I don’t have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not Christians and I don’t want my husband’s efforts to be used by unbelievers. I don’t want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly way. This is why I am taking this decision. I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going. I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord.Exodus 14 VS 14 says that “the lord will fight my case and I shall hold my peace”. I don’t need any telephone communication in this regard because of my health hence the presence of my husband’s relatives around me always. I don’t want them to know about this development.With God all things are possible.

      As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the finance bank. I will present and introduce your name to the finance bank as the receipient/new beneficiary of the fund. I want you and the church to always pray for me because the lord is my shephard. My happiness is that I lived a life of a worthy Christian. Whoever that Wants to serve the Lord must serve him in spirit and Truth.

      Please always be prayerful all through your life.Contact me immediately you read this mail because, any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing another person for this same purpose. Please assure me that you will act accordingly as I Stated herein.

      Hoping to receive your reply in this my mail box mariejosee20004@yahoo.co.jp .

      Remain blessed in the Lord. Yours in Christ,
      Yours faithfuly.
      From;Mrs Marie Joserevet.

    I am certainly looking forward to hearing from you!

    God bless!

  41. I am currently (seriously) contemplating a move from California to Bali by the end of this year/beginning of next year. I would love the opportunity to offer/donate my time and service to you in any which way I can. I speak fluently German and English. I am a Restaurant Manager from Los Angeles California. Due to my professional maturity and my Management background, I will be a highly pro-active team member and I promise you, once I completed training, I won’t need direct supervision or micromanagement to get any jobs done. I am German, which means I am by nature very organized, reliable, self- responsible, and I have an extremely solid work ethic. I am practicing yoga and mediation, which makes me a generally positive, solid and grounded individual. I am humbly asking you to use me for any positions available. I can assure you that I am the perfect candidate to join your organization. Have a blessed day. Mirko Betz

  59. Hi there everyone, it’s Aunty Joanne….
    I just wanted to thank everyone especially Charlie for supporting me in the fundraiser that I held on 1May for the Bali Orphanage. I raised $1750.50 for the children which I will be bringing there on my visit in June. I currently don’t have facebook, but that will soon change, so thankyou to everyone on there for your kind and encouraging comments.. Maybe we can all work together to raise the money to support the after school care program so that all of the children get a chance to receive an education.
    God bless
