Intercontinental Bali's Ongoing Support for Widhya Asih and Bali LFO


Guests at InterContinental Bali Resort have once again made a significant contribution to support the lives of disadvantaged children through the Resort’s annual fundraising campaign to help Widhya Asih & Bali Life Foundation Orphanage. Every year, the Resort raises funds to purchase essential necessities for the children, such as clothing, toiletries and nutritious food.

Widhya Asih is a Christian-based non-profit social agency in Bali that helps eliminate poverty through education. The Foundation manages six children's homes around Bali. The children and young adults, ranging in age from 4 to 22, come from extremely impoverished families, or are the victims of violence or exploitation. Widhya Asih means "Knowledge with Love." By providing safe and hygienic living space, nourishing food, access to formal education, quality health care, and additional training in wholesome values and productive life skills, the Foundation teaches and helps impoverished people to break away from the cycle of poverty.

Similar to Widhya Asih, Bali Life Foundation strives to provide love and care to those in Bali who are disillusioned and disadvantaged, with the aim of giving them hope, dignity and purpose. The home was built in November 2006 and the Bali Life family has grown steadily over the years, now housing 42 children from a variety of backgrounds and places in Indonesia. Bali Life recognises the need to provide the practical skills that the children need, which will allow each of them to find a good job when the time comes to leave. This has led to the development of a training workshop programme where the children learn English, IT, agriculture, cooking, music, art, dance and sport.

InterContinental Bali Resort’s 2017 Christmas fundraising initiative was a joint hotel-guest activity in which hotel guests, visitors and staff were invited to contribute a minimum US$10 cash donation and take home a Christmas pouch as a memento of their support for the underprivileged children of Bali. The pouches, which were handmade by the children of Widhya Asih orphanage house, were displayed throughout the festive season next to Santa’s Corner at InterContinental Bali Resort. 

The children also made Christmas Stockings, which were purchased by the Resort and then placed in each of the rooms on Christmas Eve as a unique turn-down amenity. ­­­­ Guests had the opportunity to see the children from Widhya Asih and Bali Life Foundation when the youngsters sang carols in the Lobby on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The amount of cash raised was matched by InterContinental Bali Resort, and a total donation of IDR 10.850.800 was presented to Widhya Asih and Bali Life Foundation on 1 and 2 February 2018.

“All children deserve to have hope and a place to call home. Our ongoing commitment to raise funds for the foundation and interact with the children of the orphanage will help open doors to a better world for them in the future”, said Michael Koth, General Manager of InterContinental Bali Resort.”
