The ROLE Foundation – Proudly supported by The Bali Flames

On Thursday January the 24, Bec was fortunate to visit the ROLE Foundation and present them with a donation of Rp 5 200 000 – which was raised from the Annual Netball Invitational Tournament we held last year in 2013. The funds were presented to Mike O’Leary, the founder; who is a passionate crusader for women’s empowerment and has created a foundation that has now also become dear to the hearts of The Bali Flames Netball Club (learn more about ROLE and how you can support them by visiting there website http://www.rolefoundation.org).

Bec was able to see first hand at how The ROLE Foundation is making an impact on the lives of several young women, who are able to board on site and have been awarded scholarships where they participate in the ROLE hospitality trainee-ship program. The tables were turned where Bec (who is a teacher herself), became the student and participated in an English and computer class, along with having a tour of their natural fabric dye and weaving workshop, waste management and permaculture site and their organic garden.
