As individuals and as Rotarians, we feel very fortunate to be living in Bali. Bali has been good to us, and we want to reciprocate by helping Balinese find solutions for the challenges they face. Lots of people talk about making a difference. Our club really does.
Rotary is about people helping people. Bali seems prosperous to the casual visitor. But once away from the tourist centres, the story can be very different. Yes, there is poverty here. Many children don’t go to school. There are communities without access to clean water . Many people live in inadequate housing. There are schools without books, schools with substandard toilets. There are many bright, hard-working young people with no hope of a job. Bali’s environmental issues include waste management and declining rice production. Our club’s projects address these issues and more.
We are pleased that all our current projects are funded. Keep checking here, however, in the near future we will have new projects that will need your support and funding.

A mobile community rice mill allows farmers to mill their own rice near their fields, helping to optimize their crops, saving on costs of milling and transport, and allowing them to retain milling by-products for animal feed and compost. RCBUS has implemented three mobile rice mills in nearby communities with grants via the Australian Consulate, Australian Direct Action Program, and Funding Network UK. Budget: IDR 43,160,000
