The ROLE Foundation

The ROLE Foundation offers FREE education to illiterate girls and women lacking any formal skills. To assist this cause The Rotary Club of Bali Seminyak raised the funds for a bus that will ease educational access for the women served by the Foundation.

ROLE's motto is "Everyone can play a Role in Creating a World without Poverty and Reviving the Health of the Environment." It aims to achieve this through three main areas of focus: Women's Literacy, Work & Life Skills and a Vocational School that provides education and training for disadvantaged women. A Community Education and Assistance Program offers programs for the entire community that include marine conservation program working local fishing communities.

The free Earth Day event starts at 3:00 pm and runs until late. Hundreds of local children are expected to participate in games intended to share an understanding about critical environmental issues.
