We have a home!!!
In the beginning, back in 2011, Bali Peduli was a truly mobile operation. The founders, and members of the steering committee, worked from home (or wherever they happen to be) and that was how ideas were concocted and plans were hatched. This being Bali, of course often plots was discussed over lunch or dinner overlooking some beautiful vista by the beach or in the hills of Ubud. That was how our mission statement was born: “eliminating barriers to care; provide free, early HIV/STI testing and treatment to save lives; prevent the spread of HIV in Bali through counselling and outreach/education.”
After two years, in early 2013, we opened the doors of our new office in Ubud.
And after a long wait for the wheels and cogs in the Ministry of Justice, Yayasan Bali Peduli received is final approval for charity status from the Government of Indonesia.
