Yayasan Solemen Indonesia
Yayasan Solemen Indonesia (‘Solemen’), an Indonesian nonprofit foundation, provides direct support and funding for the disadvantaged and ‘diffabled’ (differently abled) in Bali. Established in October 2010, Solemen is one of Bali’s most trusted and visible charities. The Former Governor of Bali Made Mangku Pastika is Solemen’s ‘Pelindung’ (Guardian/Patron) and the charity is endorsed by the Bali Government Tourism Office and the Bali Hotels Association.
Solemen Founder, Robert Epstone, declared his intention to be barefoot until SOLEMEN have raised USD 1million. His reason for being barefoot is “to be in solidarity with all those who don’t have a choice to wear or not wear shoes”.
Solemen’s Outreach Programs benefit the poor, the disadvantaged, the ‘diffabled’, the homeless and the marginalised in Bali. The charity’s goal is to alleviate the misery of extreme poverty by bringing hope and sustainable solutions to those who remain hidden from public view and hence are separated from easy access to medical treatment. Solemen actively reaches people who fall through the cracks and are not helped by the existing network of charitable organisations and government programs.
Despite very often operating on a shoestring budget, Solemen’s fast acting Outreach Team of volunteer doctors, nurses, therapists, nutritionists and social workers shoulder an ever-growing caseload of ‘Solebuddies’ (people under our care). Solemen provide effective and targeted help where it will have the most impact.
These goals support the 2016 UN Global Goals:
No Poverty (Number 1)
Good Health (number 3)
Solemen is constantly looking for donations, not just in monetary terms, but also food, clothing, mobility/disability aids, sponsors and more. Please review their wish list to view what is currently needed. We hope that you can help Solemen to help them as well as enjoying the beautiful island that is Bali.
Solemen mission is to help the disadvantaged in Bali, Indonesia.
