We're proud to be working with two incredible charities based in Indonesia.
Bali Sports Foundation
Founded in 2009, its mission is to improve the lives of persons with disabilities in Indonesia by using the power of sport and play for development, health and peace.
BSF was founded by a group of dedicated individuals with over 30 years of experience working in NGOs, sports organizations, and the Indonesian educational system, who recognized the enormous gaps in adaptive sports coverage of the Indonesian Ministry of Youth and Sports, Ministry of Education, national sports federations and Paralympic committees. During their 8 years of operation, the BSF has been responsible for increasing the number of official disabled sports available in Bali to 16, where previously there were very few.
The BSF currently provides sports programs, which includes free coaching and equipment, to over 20 NGOs and all six Special Schools in Bali that provide support to people with disabilities.
The BSF has held the Bali ParaGames for the last four years, each year involving more and more athletes. BSF has also introduced a large number of new disabled sports into Indonesia, like Blind Judo, Disabled Sailing, Handcycling , Boccia, Disabled Lawn Bowls, Disabled Shooting and with particular focus on team sports for women athletes, including mixed gender wheelchair rugby and women’s wheelchair basketball. BSF has organised more than 50 tournaments and hosted multiple international events, including the Tafisa World Games, Bali Ocean Swim and the annual Bali 4’s and Cup. BSF has extensive experience hosting international exchanges including both sports and cultural activities.
BSF Indonesia is proactive in finding people who are not connected to services and are isolated within their community and involving them in sports activities. BSF is currently expanding BSF’s sports programs to other Indonesian provinces, namely Nusa Tengara Barat, Banten and South Sulewesi.
Priscilla Hall Memorial Foundation
Priscilla Hall was tragically killed in a plane accident at Lake Lido, 65kms south of Jakarta on June 20th, 2004. Having lived the last two years of her life in Jakarta, Priscilla’s lifelong affinity for people extended into a great interest in assisting disadvantaged children. In light of this, Priscilla’s family and friends have established the Priscilla Hall Memorial Foundation, a not-for-profit, charitable fund that aims to help underprivileged children of Indonesia.
The vision of the Foundation is: “To provide direct and on-going assistance to Indonesian children in need, with a focus on meeting their basic nutritional, shelter and educational requirements.”
The Foundation disburses funds to two categories of projects that fall within the vision:
– Existing projects run by other reputable and charitable organisations
– Projects designed and implemented by the Executive Committee of the Foundation itself. In such cases, a third party may be involved in the implementation and administration of the project.
These projects may assist beneficiaries both with ongoing provision of day-to-day needs and larger, one-off infrastructure projects. The beneficiaries of the assisted projects are children living in Indonesia, particularly orphans or those in other disadvantaged circumstances.
It is intended that projects be sustainable and on-going and result, long term, in tangible improvement in the living and/or educational standards of the beneficiaries.
The implementation of all projects is closely monitored by the Executive Committee of the Foundation or a designated third party to ensure that all funds disbursed are used for the intended purpose.
