Charity Update - Flag raising ceremony in Pengalusan
South Kuta - In the early morning of August 17th 2012, representatives from the Bali Dynasty Resort attended the East Bali Poverty Project's flag raising ceremony and annual Independence Day event in the remote mountain hamlet of Desa Ban in North Eastern Bali where EBPP's 6 schools and local villagers converged in the dry river bed to celebrate Indonesia’s 67th Independence Day, all organized by the East Bali Poverty Project.
The Bali Dynasty Resort, every year since 2002 in the same location for all of the children in the 6 remote schools, as in previous years, sponsored the Hygiene kits for each of all students and tutors of the 6 schools which consisted of towels, soap, toothbrush and toothpaste as well as fresh fruit to remind the villagers of the importance of good personal hygiene and healthy nutritional eating. The children of EBPP's schools prepared great performances from Balinese dances to drama and music. There were fun games organized for the kids such as krupuk eating contests and sack races making it a joyous occasion for all!
This event was also the perfect occasion to hand over a brand new camera to I. Wayan Lias, the young and talented artist from the village Cegi whom the Bali Dynasty Resort has been supporting in his further education at the Fine Art Faculty in Singaraja since May 2012.
The camera was given to support a photography segment in his studies where Lias will be required to make a photo exhibition. “I am very grateful, now I am able to practise and develop my photographic skills”, Lias said. He also pointed out to the young children in the village to keep doing their best as this will bring results and a better future.
A selection of Lias’ art is being displayed in the resort as well as being posted on the hotels website. The paintings are for sale and 50% of the money raised will directly go to supporting his education.
Flag raising celebration in Dynasty
The 67th Indonesians Independence Day 2012 was also celebrated within the Dynasty resort.
Fun competition games were held over the week prior to the 17th of August between several departments and great prizes were given out for the winners.
On the 17th of August at 7.30 AM staff and management gathered to announce the independence day by raising the Indonesian flag.
We are happy to share some of the great pictures with you, from the actual flag raising to the fun games within the resort.
Tour of the Month - Bali Quad
For the people who would like to experience the 'real' Bali, Bali Quad Discovery Tours has developed some unique off road adventure tours with quad bikes (ATVs) four wheel drive motorcycles through a very authentic part of the island.
The tours combine a great experience of driving your own powerful off road 4-wheel motorcycle (or enjoying the ride while comfortably sitting on the back of the bike) with the opportunity to learn about the way the local people live. You will follow our experienced guides by driving between beautiful rice fields, pass the rain forest, drive up the mountain and cross some riverbeds. It doesn't matter if you have ever driven a quad bike before, as the bikes are user friendly, and everybody will get a detailed instruction and practice on the spot before you start our tours.
For bookings contact our Tour & Information Center close to the hotel Lobby.
