PUSPADI’s annual Job Placement Program is designed to help disabled men and women receive the proper training required to gain employment and lead independent lives. Bali Hotels Association (BHA) provides volunteers on a quarterly basis to conduct training sessions and share valuable knowledge about the hospitality industry. Additionally, BHA also instigates work experience opportunities in some of the hotel’s under its banner with the possibility of full time employment for successful participants.

“Bali Hotels Association has supported this program for the past 3 years and the results have been remarkable. It is heartening to see that so many men and women who have participated in this initiative are now able to live independently despite their physical limitations. These spirited individuals are hard workers and determined to succeed as productive member of society, which is truly inspiring,” comments Virginie Tutin Sandstrom, director in charge of Community Service for BHA. “We hope that more establishments and corporations will support this amazing program and create further working opportunities for these wonderful people,” she adds.
