Planning a Visit

We are excited with you as you read this! Having visitors from around the world greatly enriches the lives of the children and lets them know that people care about them. It also is common to hear from recent visitors that meeting the children was the “best” or “most memorable” part of their trip to Bali. Below are some questions and answers that will be helpful to you as you begin to plan your visit.

Where are we located? About 30 to 45 minutes north of  the Kuta area. Please go the the “Map to the Orphanage” page to see a detailed map and more helpful tips. You can also arrange transportation here on our “Transportation In Bali” page. 

When is the best time to visit? You can stop in any time if you are already in the area, visitors are always welcome. If you would like to be sure that the children are not busy or in school, then after 1pm during the week is a good time. On the weekends and holidays, some of the children are away with friends or extended family but there will usually be about 20 or more that will still be there.

Can I bring my children? Yes! Please do! Children are always the first to break through the language barrier and usually end up playing with the kids here right away. There is a small playground, ping pong tables, and a basketball court that will give them plenty of opportunity to get to know each other and have some fun.

Visiting an orphanage in Bali Indonesia

Can I bring something to give? Donations etc. Donations of all sorts are always appreciated. New or slightly used clothes, toys, sports equipment, school supplies, toiletries etc. are all things that can be used. Financial donations can be given directly to any of the Sisters. Monetary donations are very useful as it allows the Sisters to buy exactly what the children need including medicine, vitamins, food etc. You will receive a signed and stamped receipt with the amount of your donation. If you are coming with an guide or driver, even if they tell you they are an “official guide” etc. please do not give them donations to pass on to the staff but give the donations directly yourselves.

Can I volunteer, work or teach at the orphanage? Yes, but you must first meet in person with the head Sister and arrange with her directly. (Currently it is Sister Clemencia) It is not possible to make arrangements over the phone or online as this is their policy to ensure the children’s safety.

Who do I contact?

CONTACT The Bali Orphanage directly at baliorphanagetuka@yahoo.co.id or you can call them at:
+62 361 7473827

  10. The team here at Flight Centre Bayside are wanting to make a difference this year. Our team Vision is ‘doing it for the kids’ and we are aiming to raise $3000.00 this financial year for your orphange in Bali.

    We will be donating $20.00 from each booking to Bali we make throughout the year, with the hope of flying to Bali together as a team to present you with the money we have raised.

    To achieve our goal of raising $3000.00 our work Christmas Party will be a fundraising event and I was hoping that you could please email me some video footage of the children in the Orphanage to show to our 120 guests whom we are asking to raise money.

    Anything you can send me to play woudl be great.

    Best regards

  17. Tania, Carl and Brittney

    Hello, my name is Tania and I will be taking my first trip to Bali soon with my family. I am a teacher in Australia and my partner Carl a registered nurse. Our 16 year old daughter Brittney will also be with us. She attends one of Australia’s Mercy school’s and has volunteered time working with Aboriginal children in remote Australia (through her school) and she would love to come spend some time with the children at the orphanage. We would love to visit the orphanage on either October 11th/12th/13th in the afternoon and possibly do some art/craft and sport activities with them. Is this something that they would enjoy? Do the children know the sport cricket? I know this is short notice so I’m hoping I will get a reply before we leave? If not I will pack some crafty things and hope for the best. Hoping to see you soon. Tania, Carl and Brittney X

    • Hi Tania, Carl and Brittney!
      You can just show up on any of those days just after 1pm and the kids will all just be getting home from school. Any of the activities would be very welcomed and enjoyed. Have a look at the rest of this website for a map, transportation etc. that will help you find the orphanage.

      Thanks for writing!

  18. Halo nama saya Sharon smith I will be visiting the orphanage at 1 pm tuesday 4 th October I have some things for the children. I think I have already contacted you about my plans but am double checking that you are expecting me and my daughter and her friend.
    Suksama sharon

    • Hi Sharon- and I’m very sorry for not getting back to you. I am still in Indonesia and have recently returned from two other orphanages on other islands and am just now getting caught up on emails etc. I hope that your visit was great and please share any info/photos that you have on their facebook page. (in the side bar here)
      Thanks again for taking the time to visit!

  19. I will be in Bali from 12 October and would like to volunteer my services … I am a 45-year-old journalist. Sincerely etc. John

    • Hi John! Just contact Sister Clemsia by making a visit when you get here. Communication is very difficult so this is the only current way to make plans to help. She is usually available from 9am to around 1pm before the children get home from school. Have a look through this website for a map and transportation to the orphanage.
      Thanks for writing and safe travels!

  20. Me and my friend would like to volunteer for a week end next year bur want to look into it now
    We will be 18 and 17 years old with leadership rewards and completed certificates
    We wish to volunteer for a week ad wondering if it is ok to

  21. Hello Dewa, me and a few friends are visiting bali at the end of November early December. We would love to come and visit for the day and help out in any way that is needed. I would also like to donate some of my clothes over to Bali from Australia, just wondering if that is a good idea? Thank you.

  22. Hello 🙂
    My name is Jess (from Australia), and I will be coming to Bali on Sept 21st for 2 weeks with 2 of my girlfriends. We would very much like to come and visit the orphanage and meet the children. Could you please let me know when would be the best day & time would be to visit? xox

  23. Hi, my husband and I will be visiting Bali on 31Aug-8Sep’11. Do let us know when would be the best time to visit the children and what are the required items for us to bring as gifts? We would also like to get involve in any help/ project required while we are there.

    Thank you,
    Gladys

    • Gladys! I am in California as I write but will be there just as you leave! No worries though as the Sisters and staff will be happy to help you. If you came after 1pm most of the children would just be coming home from school on any weekday that you are there. If you just let the Sisters know as soon as you arrive that you would like to help with some work, there is always something going on and I am sure that they would be happy to have you join in. Nothing is required to bring as gifts but if you would like to bring something, shampoos, soaps and toiletries for the girls is alway appreciated.
      Thank you so much for caring Gladys!

  24. Hi my name is Ali, I’m from Singapore. A few of us from school would love to visit the orphanage sometime between the 16th and 20th of October. Would this be possible?Should we inform somebody before arriving or just turn up?

    Thanks
    Ali

    • Hi Ali! Glad you wrote!
      Any of the week days that you are in Bali would be best. Any time after 1pm is best as the children will be home from school. Safe travels to you!

  25. Hi,

    My mum and I are coming to bali on the 12th of september for 12 days. We would love to come and visit for a day within the first couple of days of our holiday. We are not fussy when, as we haven’t made any set plans yet. When would it best suit you for us to visit? Also I work at a stationery store, are there any specific school supplies the kids would like? or should I bring an assortment of colouring pencils and crayons? We would love to spend some time with the kids, or if there is something else/a project of some description you need help with please don’t hesitate to ask as we would love to help in any way possible!! Hope to hear from you soon,

    Jamie-Lee

    • Hi Jamie-Lee!
      With school beginning again, ANY types of stationary would be very much appreciated. Pens and pencils of all colors would be wonderful as well. Any weekday after 1pm would be fine. Thanks so much for your generosity and safe travels to you both!

      • fantastic!! would it be better for us to get exactly the amount that there are of students, or will it all just be shared? If we can get them for each, how many children are we looking at? Should we let anyone know before we come, or is it okay to just turn up?

        • There are nearly 100 students in all as there are 10 relatively new children now. If that is too many to get something for, do not worry at all as not most people bring enough items for 10 or 15 of the children at a time. (the Sisters, Teachers and children will be very happy with whatever you bring. If you show up after 1pm it is ok to just show up as they will have all just returned home from school. Excited for you!

  26. Hi,
    I am planning to come to the Orphanage August 27th so please let me know of anything I can do to help/projects you would like me to get involved with 🙂

    • Hi Jessica! I just left you a comment on the other page as well. Just in case you miss it… Just ask for Sister Clemensia when you get there and let her know right away that you would really like to help. (helping with lunch prep is great, just get there by 10am or so) Thanks for helping!

  27. Dara Gendis Adella

    Hi,
    I am a high school student from Australia and I am very interested in spending some time in an orphanage for work experience. We are to spend a week or so in the work field of our interest. I want to be doing counselling/psychology or social working and even education with youth in Asia. I am learning Indonesian as a subject at school as well, which would be handy. Would this be allowed, or would it be against everything?

    • you have great vision and I really like how you are gaining such great skills for what you want to do in life. Inspiring!It would be no problem to arrange a week at the orphanage for you to teach etc.Stay in touch and let me know when you are ready and would like to come. Thanks for your willingness to give! – charlie

  28. Hello,
    I am in Bali for a few days from the 6th and was hoping I could come visit and would like to check what your current needs are. You do have on the site – flip flops and some clothing items. Is this still correct? Is there anything else needed at this time? Which day would be best for me to visit?
    Thank you for your time and I look forward to hopefully coming to visit. You are doing wonderful work.

    Kind Regards, Donna (Australia)

    • Sarah Claire Thompson

      Hi. My name is Sarah Claire Thompson,myself and two friends are currently in Sanur and would love to visit. As its not far we were going to pop in tomorrow. Hope this is okay and look forward to meeting the Children.

  29. Hi
    My husband and I are coming back to Bali on the 20thAug until the 10 th of september.

    Anne-Maree & Glenn

    • Hi Donna! Any day is great, but I would suggest a weekday when more of the children and staff are there. I am checking these comments daily now, so if you let me know here what your ideal day is, I can contact Sister Corry and make sure that you are expected. (and a project in mind as well) Thank you so much for your willingness to pitch in and help.

      • Hi Charlie,
        Thanks for the information. Either Monday 8th or Tuesday 9th would probably work for me. I will confirm once I arrive in Bali if thats ok. I definitely want to help so, anything that needs doing I will definitely pitch in and lend a hand. I also noted on your current needs that you need shoes and some clothing items, due to weight restrictions I am unable to bring anything with me however, I would like to make a donation so, that these items can be purchased. Anyway really looking forward to meeting the children and the staff. Donna

      I am writing from California, but will forward your note to Dewa. Dewa volunteers much of his time at the orphanage in Tuka and will be able to arrange your visit with you. He can meet you in Legian on his scooter and then you can follow by taxi/car to Tuka, about 45 min from Legian even in traffic. His English is great and his love for the children even greater.

  42. Hello,

    My name is Julie Paige. I will be visiting Bali in July and would love to come visit the children. I am the owner and teacher of a performing arts studio for children and teenagers in the United States. I would love to come teach a class with the children. I can teach them DANCE (ballet or jazz or hip-hop) or Broadway MUSICAL THEATRE (singing and dancing together). Please let me know if this would be possible and how to set up a specific date & time. I would need to know the ages of the children (or which age group you might like me to work with) and what you would like me to teach. And do the children speak any English?

    I would also like to bring or mail any items that you might be in need of. I’m sure my students could donate a lot of clothing if needed. I would need to know the sizes or ages of the children. If clothing is not needed right now, please let me know what might be needed the most and how many children you currently have.

    Thank you kindly,
    Julie Paige

  43. Hi Dewa,
    I have visited the orphanage previously and donated money, i was very touched by the experience i had with the children and Sister Cleminsia. I would really love to come and volunteer at the orphanage for 1-2 weeks. is this possible sometime near Christmas?
    If so am i able to stay at the orphanage?
    I will be 18 years old, and travelling by myself, is this okay?

    Thanks,
    Tori Miles

    • Hi Tory Miles,
      Nice to hear from you and thank you for your generosity. Sister Clemensia and the children say hello to you. It would be great if you do a volunteer near Christmas at the orphanage. I please you to stay at orphanage but please contact me two weeks before you get Bali so that i can prepare the room for you. You are still very young but you are doing the great thing for the children at orphanage.

      Kind regards,

  49. Hi !
    I have always wanted to help out at an orphanage . I am 45 & my husband is 63. We are near Perth WA at the moment .
    If we can get airfares to come over I believe you have rooms available if we spend some time helping there ?
    We want to get together things to bring that are needed for the children
    I am writing an article for online so if any of the children would like something special said or yourself please let me know.
    I am waiting for surgery on my knees so not sure when we can come over.

    Jackie and Sienna

  64. Dear Charlie and Dewa

    I am a student from Australia in my final year of high school. I am coming to Bali in early July and would love to come and visit the younger children at the orphanage. My mother and I will be in Ubud on 6, 7 and 8 July and I was wondering if we could visit then?

    Is the orphange closer to Ubud or Kuta? (We will be in Kuta 4 July and 10 and 11 July). The directions are a little confusing 🙂 but if you are able to let me know a date and time that would be best for us to come and help, then perhaps I could call you when we are in Bali?

    Thank you very much, I look forward to hearing from you and seeing the children I hope!!!

    • Dear Sienna,
      Hey, Nice to hearing that you would like to come to visit the children in the orphanage. Kuta is closer to orphanage. The directions is bit confusing but do not worry i can come to your Hotel than we can go together to the orphanage. What do you think? . I please you to come to visit on 6th of July after 10 am.

      Best regards
      Dewa

      • Hello Dewa

        My name is Jackie, I am Sienna’s mother:) We are pleased that we can visit the Orphanage but we will be in Ubud on 6 July, back in Kuta from 9 July. Is it ok for us to call you when we return to Kuta to come and see you? I think it is closer to the orphanage from Kuta so it is probably better to come from there.

        Look forward to meeting you and the children,
        Jackie Dupe
