Details

The friendship between a hippopotamus and an elephant is fantasized in the endearing design of this pair of albesia wood ornaments by Gusti Lanang, from Bhakti Senang Hati. The nonprofit cooperative helps people with physical disabilities to develop self-confidence and physical and economic independence.

"One of my leg was amputated due to a motorbike accident and I joined the foundation in 2007. Here I met my wife, who is on wheelchair, and we have a son. Now we work together for our little family's future. I craft the ornaments by hand, and my wife controls the quality."

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Bhakti Senang Hati was founded and is run by people with physical challenges who provide a special service for the physically challenged in Bali. The society also provides wheelchairs and housing, and runs Bhakti Senang Hati Places, a home for children with disabilities. The seven artisans who are members of the foundation use a wheelchair or have a prosthetic leg. This does not stop them from living a full-life and striving to be self-sufficient.

The Bakti Senang Hati Foundation assists persons with disabilities. Living with a disability can be more difficult in Bali than in other places. Bali's Hindu culture carries with it the additional stigma of karma. To be disabled is the physical manifestation of bad karma. Traditionally, the disabled were hidden away and isolation was added to their burden. Attitudes are slowly changing and programs such as the Bakti Senang Hati Foundation teach self-confidence as well as the practical skills that will enable their members to become self-supporting.

Although their Novica sales do not provide enough income for each artisan to be self-supporting, these sales have a profound impact on their lives. The income contributes not only to their financial stability but also to their self-esteem. It is important to these artisans that their work is seen and appreciated around the world.

There are eight children that the Bakti Senang Hati artisans are able to provide for.

The Bakti Senang Foundation provides for the education of eight children.
