Installing a disabled-friendly bathroom

luxury family trip philanthropic volunteering

Balinese people are warm and gentle, so it comes as a complete surprise that their traditional culture should consider disabilities a curse or the karmic result of past wrong-doing.

Disabled people are near-outcasts in Balinese society, and they lead very difficult lives; with no government support, their families are the sole caregivers, which places a large burden on them.

By funding and installing a disabled-accessible bathroom for a paraplegic or quadraplegic, you can make a huge difference in their life. We work with people who could never afford a facility like this, living in remote, rural, very poor villages.

A disabled-accessible bathroom improves their quality of life and enables them to perform tasks unaided that we take for granted.

You will not only get to know the recipient of your help and their family, but also others in the village, so you will gain insights into their lives, and leave a lasting legacy.
