The community of Sidemen has been severely impacted by the pandemic. Help us raise money to improve their lives.
As the owners of Samanvaya, we have been working hard to keep our staff employed throughout the pandemic. We are providing 32 staff with an income to support themselves and their families. However, business has been extremely challenging for us and we need your help to ensure the beautiful people of our local village Tabola are happy, healthy and excitedly waiting for your return.
The people of Bali, particularly small rural communities like Sidemen have been disproportionately impacted by this crisis resulting in urgent humanitarian needs. The country has gone into another lockdown meaning many people are unable to work, businesses aren't able to operate, the government provides no assistance and many countries previously supporting are spending money on their own healthcare and social services.
If you feel a strong connection to this beautiful island, now is the time to show support. The more we can raise, the more we can provide, so please give as generously as you can.
Any additional money will mean food packages can be provided for those in the next village too.
“Success isn’t how much money you make but how much of a difference you make in people’s lives.”
Our aim is to raise enough money to provide a food package for all 330 families in the community. 100% of proceeds go directly to the community and food packages will be distributed by our local team.
Support Sidemen is still helping the local community in Bali thanks to you! 24 November 2021
Our most recent project with Plastic Exchange is a sustainability movement that empowers communities to change their waste behaviour through dignity-based exchange systems that result in cleaner, healthier environments.
People bring in their rubbish and recycling and in exchange we give them rice, resulting in a cleaner Sidemen village and a way to empower the community to help themselves.
This is an ongoing project with collection days monthly so any additional support you can provide helps us keep this project running. We have had incredible response from the community and hope to keep this momentum going.
Thanks again for your support, we appreciate it more than you can imagine.
A big thank you for your generous donation from the team at Samanvaya and the families of Sidemen and surrounding villages. With your help, we have given 495 packs of food, blankets, medicine and hygiene products specific to the needs of those especially vulnerable within our community. Your support is appreciated more than you can imagine and we hope to see you over here at some stage in the future. Suksma.
