We believe our duty as a small business in Bali is to give back to the island and community that has given us so many opportunities
FREE - We are happy to do our best to schedule one of our drivers and vans for your group when available to visit Seeds of Hope or YPAC (home for Physically Challenged). Please visit their websites to schedule your visit and we'll help with transportation. Both homes are doing fantastic work and in need of regular support to continue to do so. Should you prefer, donated goods can be left at The Shampoo Lounge / Bali Barber in Seminyak or Nusa Dua and we'll for sure get them to those in need.
We frequently get the question, what is needed? Imagine raising fifty kids (or fifty elderly people in poor health) or more on a super tight budget, now cut that budget in half. They definitely don't need candy, treats, etc. Here's a good list to reference provided by YPAC that is pretty much universal at all homes.
FREQUENTLY USED ITEMS Fresh fruit and vegetables Rice Instant packet noodles (NOT the kind in the polystyrene pots!!) Fresh fish and chicken pieces, chicken or beef hot dogs – these can be frozen Fresh eggs Bread – packet sliced white – buns etc these can also be frozen. Milk – large and small boxes long -life flavoured milk, Milo etc Juices – small boxes – check the sugar content Sauces : soya, local kecap manis, kecap asim, chilli sauce, small bottles are better. Salt, flour and sugar, not huge bags as they do not stay fresh, better ½ Kg or 1kg size. Cooking oil Tinned milk and fruit Tea and coffee – ready mix packets of local coffee, Nescafe Top Kopi etc

CLOTHING Our students range in ages from 6 to 22! All shapes and sizes! The residential girls are from age 12 to 18 and the boys are from 13 to adult. While we appreciate all clothes that are donated, it’s always good to get something new out of the packet as well as pre-used. The girls prefer leggings to shorts.
