Santa Claus makes a happy appearance as ornaments from Bali. Wayan Cidra, from Bhakti Senang Hati, crafts and paints each albesia wood ornament by hand. The set of four ornaments hangs from golden cords.

"I'm the youngest of five siblings and our parents are farmers in Gianyar. I never went to school because of my parent's financial limitations, and also because I got poliomyelitis when I was just a child and it left me with weakened knees. I wanted to help my parents in some way, so I have been crafting ornaments since I was 14 years old. I felt so proud to myself when I received my very first income. Although I'm not really happy with my physical condition, I'm happy doing ornaments and hopefully my products can make more people happy. My hobby is singing traditional Balinese songs. I'm married and we have a son and a daughter. My wife is the one who helps me in making these ornaments, which I hope makes people’s Christmas happier."

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.
