As a large company on Lembongan and in Bali, it’s important that we participate in activities and events that benefit the broader community in which we live. We employ a large number of our staff from Lembongan, while many of our staff in Benoa are from all around Bali. We offer training and encourage upskilling with all our staff as we believe it’s benefits their opportunities in the workplace and creates a happy environment to work in.
However we are aware that for some people in Bali, education and training is much harder to come by so we like to support programs that offer skilled learning and training. Bali WISE is one such group that provide a 6 month course to marginalised women in Indonesia, teaching them important skills for work and job placements.
Recently they held a fundraiser in Sanur and we were proud to be a part of the auction. All auction items were ‘sold off’ to raise funds for the program – a 6 month live-in education course for 120 women is not cheap. This course intake has students from Nusa Penida, our neighboring island, and we understand how difficult it is for people to be off the island and away from families.
By supporting the auction, we are supporting not only the students from Penida but also the program. We proudly donated Bali Hai Diving Adventures dive vouchers, Bali Hai Cruises beach cruise vouchers, Bali Hai aquanauts vouchers and a dinner voucher from Hai Bar & Grill. The money raised goes straight to the education program.
The auction was a great success on Friday and now we can’t wait to meet the lucky winners of our vouchers and entertain them on our cruise, on the pontoon, in the beach club and at the restaurant!
