Reefs, Oceans, Land, Ecology. These are the four areas that are the primary focus of the R.O.L.E Foundation – a Bali based charity that Karma has been working with for many years now, supporting a wide range of initiative – including the Bali Wise Programme, which aims to empower marginalised women through educational programs, qualified job opportunities and a deeper understanding of self-worth, boundaries and women’s rights in Indonesia.
On 06 May the team at Karma Kandara will be taking part in a 13km charity canoe race to show our continued support for R.O.L.E. The Row for R.O.L.E. 2.0 Canoe Race is set to be the biggest fundraiser in Bali history, taking participants along the beautiful coastline of Bali and raising much needed funding for Bali Wise. Last year, Karma and other R.O.L.E supporters raised just over 1.1 billion rupiah, which allowed for the Bali Wise centre to return to full capacity of operations, lifting over 100 young women out of poverty through educational programmes and employment opportunities.
We’re looking forward to taking part in this year’s charity paddle – watch out for an event review with pictures next month!
