Working On a Better Future

With Local Communities, Businesses and Governments

R.O.L.E. Foundation’s vision is to empower local people, businesses and governments through practical education programs so that they can improve their local environment and develop sustainable communities.

R.O.L.E. Foundation’s 2 Skills Centers in Nusa Dua, Bali:

Bali WISE is an educational skills center focusing on Bali’s hospitality industry, and run by R.O.L.E. Foundation’s staff. The high-quality education and skills training lives up to the high quality standards of professional tourism businesses. Its purpose is to empower young, marginalized Indonesian women through skills education as a means to break te poverty cycle and develop sustainable communities in Indonesia.

The ZeroWaste Center is an environmental skills center run by R.O.L.E. Foundation. Its purpose is to share ecological knowledge & waste management training for local governments, businesses, communities and people, so that they can apply it into their working surroundings and their daily lives. By doing so, the local environment will be improved and the amount of waste ending up in rivers and oceans, or going to landfill will be reduced.

Sponsor a Bali WISE Student

At risk -> Study -> Graduate -> Quality job

In short, this is what BaliWise provides to young economically and educationally disadvantaged Indonesian women.

The program includes three months of basic hospitality & life skills and another three months of practical on-job training at one of the eleven Bali WISE education partners; 5-star resorts and hotels, spa academies, and tour and travel agencies. After completion, students will receive a Certificate, which is recognized by the hospitality industry in Bali. And, as a result, 87% gets a steady job within three months after graduation.

With your help, these women can gain fair income for themselves and their families!

Give Hope to The Next Generation of Bali & Indonesia!

R.O.L.E. Foundation needs a new minibus to bring public-school children to the ZeroWaste Center and to transport the Bali WISE students to off-site learning locations.

Turn dreams into reality!
