BALI CHILDREN FOUNDATION

THE KEY TO SUSTAINABLE CHANGE

Bali Children Foundation (Yayasan Samiarsa Seminyak) is a not for profit organisation, founded in 2002 by Margaret Barry, OAM, DSJ after the Bali bombing. Marg believed the tragedy was a consequence of poverty and inadequate educational opportunities and saw the situation as a chance to make a lasting difference.

A year into starting the project Marg suffered her own personal setback. As a result of an accident, she suffered a spinal injury which resulted in total paralysis. After an extremely fortunate but slow process of rehabilitation, Marg eventually found herself back on her feet. During her recovery period, she used her good days to rapidly advance her charity work. As she recovered over the next 3 years, Margaret worked with children’s homes in North and West Bali and concluded that a more sustainable model was well overdue. “Through Children’s Homes, we could only impact a limited number of students, and there were so many villages where the children were just as poor, if not more poor, than the ones in the children’s homes.”

In 2007, Margaret, Bali Children Foundation chairman, Agung Sutama and founding Board member Mike Dolbey, launched their first community-based project in Corot, North Bali, supporting a total of 40 students. The program, with funding support from Paul Wheelton and Lyndsay Beer was a huge success. Over the next 10 years despite a myriad of challenges the Foundation forged ahead to empower thousands of disadvantaged children’s lives.

FOCUSING ON CHILDREN'S NEEDS

The BCF English program is delivered into communities via a ‘student centric’ curriculum. Our classes emphasise spoken and listening English which are important skills for future employment in Bali. The BCF curriculum is enhanced with videos and presented to the students via a 55 inch smart TV. This exciting use of technology provides students with previously undreamed of opportunities. BCF employ and train teachers via a unique training program enabling teachers to develop skills and become better teacher practitioners. Curriculums are tailored depending on location, cultural sensitivities and issues pertinent to that specific location. Environmental studies have been introduced into the curriculum over the recent years beginning with the islands of Nusa Lembongan. Here it has been vital to build awareness among the children who will inherit this island and the challenges they face. In other areas, especially ‘rain shadow’ districts with unreliable water supply, hygiene and health messages enter the curriculum.

Our name “Kumala Pantai”, which literally translates into “The Crown of the Beach”, reflects this dedication to deliver you only the best service and hospitality.

The Garden of Statues

Take a stroll back in time through ravishing collection of flora and hundred year old trees and statues in our gardens. Our collection of rare stone or wooden carvings of characters and figures in Balinese and Hindu culture, numbers nearly a thousand. Each figure bears a name and legend as different as the next. The interaction of man made structures and nature create a most curious synergy of beauty and art. We nurture nearly a thousand types of exotic native flowers including Anggrek Bulan, Irian Flame and Wijaya Kusuma. Legend has it that those who are lucky enough to witness a Wijaya Kusuma in full bloom before 9 at night will have many years of good health and fortune. In the manner of Balinese believes, some trees are considered sacred and are thus clothed with special sarongs. Going around the premise is made easy with carefully thought off disabled access.

The Architecture

The design of the suites gathers inspirations from century old Balinese culture with hints of European touches, symbolising a marriage of community from the East and West. We have five main buildings assembled strategically to frame the gardens, which together tell the legend of the Pandawa Lima. The Pandawas are the five brothers of deified warriors from an ancient Hindu literature, Maha Bharata. Our buildings take on the character and the name of each warrior; Yudhistira, Bima, Arjuna, Nakula Sahadewa and finally their mentor Semar. To us, the sense of closely linked community, family integrity and achivements through the lives of these warriors are the foundation of Hotel Kumala Pantai.
