"Although we live in very limited conditions, my childhood was very happy", says artisan Sang Ayu. "I used to work carrying stones for a dam construction when I was in Junior High School so I can pay the school fee myself. Unfortunately the dam suddenly collapse and huge stones broke my leg. Now I have to use a prosthesis everywhere. I was so depressed, very not confident after the accident, I usually hide and shy whenever people visiting our home. But finally my spirit is back after I saw my parents were crying because my depressed condition. After pray to God, I feel more patient and strong. I even graduated from a university, and I start making handicrafts. After I joined the Foundation, I met my husband and now we have 3 boys."

"Love these bracelets!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The colors of both bracelets are pretty much exactly as pictured. I really like them both. They can be worn together beautifully or separate. I just received them yesterday so havent had the chance to wear them anywhere. They do appear to be well-made. They certainly are pretty, very lovely and Im glad I bought them.

These carnelian beaded stretch bracelets are very comfortable, whether wearing 1 or a dozen. Color is not too red but wonderful spicy orange color.

"Beads not of good quality"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I liked the color of these 8 mm agate beads, but they are not of good quality. One has a chipped spot, another has crevices, and others are fairly out of round. There is nothing wrong with the construction of the bracelet, but the quality of the beads makes this an item to be returned. I will look for a brown tiger eye bracelet as a replacement.

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.
