Educational aid for two neighbouring elementary schools
As part of its social responsibility and community development programme, Alila Seminyak supports two local elementary schools in Kerobokan where the resort is located. SD Negeri 1 was established in 1951 and was a pioneer of children’s education in this area. As the population grew and the need for educational services expanded, the local government opened another elementary school, SD Negeri 2, in 1965. Teachers of both schools have been active in developing the schools’ art and science curriculum, and facilitating students’ participation in competitions such as national maths and science olympiads, Balinese dance and art competitions, English speech contests and many more. Nurturing the potential of the students requires the support of creative spaces such as a library, art class, computer and science laboratory. With the students and community being well exposed to tourism and an urban lifestyle, English and other foreign language training and facilities are required to provide basic communication skills. Education that promotes a sustainable environment and healthy lifestyle is also important to create a mindset of responsible tourism amongst the young generation.
‘Bali Coins’ is a fundraising programme that aims to build a brighter future for Bali’s poor, disadvantaged and orphaned children by providing financial support for kids' general health, wellbeing and education, as well as create greater awareness among families and communities of critical health risks, prevention and care. Guests can contribute to Bali Coins through the resort’s F&B outlets, where the price of selected menu items includes an amount to be contributed to the programme. The funds collected will be donated 100% to Alila Seminyak and Jemme's most prestigious annual event, The Bali Ball, which will next be held this October. Into its 6th year, The Bali Ball has already raised over $500,000, which has supported many vital charitable organisations, such as Bali Kids, Bali Medika, Bali Children Foundation, and Yayasan Samaratania.
