Sanur Village is gaining recognition for its community programs, leading the way in innovation and charitable work. Recently a team of dedicated community members got together to form a committee for The Spirit of Sanur – a huge beach party fundraiser that will be held at the iconic Segara The Seaside on May 2nd, to raise funds to support three local charities working within Sanur Village.
Program Dharma is a program based on One Welfare. They contribute to providing information and education on efforts to oppose, control rabies and increase public awareness of animals. Together with village cadres in each Banjar, Program Dharma conducts training and organises dog sterilisation days in Sanur. They also facilitate management improvement and support programs. The team from Program Dharma recently installed the now-famous dog feeders on Sanur Beach and have successfully implemented animal health and welfare programs throughout Sanur. Their hard work was even recognised at the national awards for positive community initiatives, coming second place.
TPS3R Sekar Tanjung, Sanur Kauh is a community-based waste management facility which is run and managed by the community. The 3R's stand for Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and TPS 3R Sekar Tanjung are doing all they can to implement the 3R, thus creating an optimal diversion from the landfill. At TPS ER Sekar Tanjung, waste that is collected from households and businesses in Sanur Kauh are processed further. The recyclable materials are prepared for the recycling process, and the organic waste is composted; thus, only a small amount of residue gets sent to landfill, TPA Suwung. TPS3R Sekar Tanjung educates on how to separate waste into three different categories to ensure that minimal volume of waste is sent to the landfill.
Project Karma is an Australian Registered Charity with the Australian Charities and Non for Profit Commission (ACNC) and is registered with the Australian Government’s Harm Prevention Register and endorsed by the ATO with deductible gift recipients (DGR) STATUS. Project Karma is also registered as an official charitable foundation in Indonesia-Yayasan Project Karma Indonesia. Project Karma focuses on all forms of child sexual exploitation and trafficking of children and has worked with or consulted to many large non-government organisations such as UNICEF and ECPAT International. Project Karma has worked closely on investigations with and trained many local and international law enforcement agencies, including INTERPOL, Australian Federal Police, Royal Thai Police, Philippine National Police, Cambodian National Police, Indonesian National Police, Polda and many others.
These three groups all work to create a happier, healthier and cleaner Sanur for everyone to enjoy, but they can’t do this alone. They need our help. Fundraising events rely on the generosity of others - in attendance and also in donated items. The Spirit of Sanur will be holding an enormous raffle and a silent auction, with prizes from all over Indonesia. They appreciate any donation, big or small because as with all fundraising, every cent or rupiah counts. If you can donate an item or a voucher for the raffle or silent auction, not only will you get lots of love from them 😉, you will also get thank you shout-outs across all social media from The Spirit of Sanur and The Travellist, that both the charities and Segara will be sharing. And your business logo will be featured on the presentation that will be on the big screen all night long!
Fundraising events play several roles within our community: they bring us together to celebrate our village and its people, and they raise much-needed funding for hard-working charities. But the costs of the event still exist and to ensure the majority of funds raised goes to the charities, and they need help with some of the costs. These costs are things like: a Genset; additional lighting; a stage; entertainment; marketing material like banners and ticketing; and more. If you can help sponsor this fundraiser, that's one less cost that comes out of funds raised and more money that goes to our fantastic community charities.
For more information, please message our FB or IG and we’ll get you in touch with The Spirit of Sanur committee.
Oh, and we’ll see you at the party, of course!
May 2nd, at the awesome Segara The Seaside for dancing on the beach, brilliant live bands and DJ’s, raffles, auctions and so much more!
