Dajuma’s CSR: Go study auction

Though we wish to preserve Bali’s beautiful countryside by reducing Dajuma’s environmental footprint, we are concerned by Bali’s needs in terms of our Corporate Social Responsibility.

On this topic, one major priority remains allowing children to go to school. As such, our team chose supporting Bali Children Foundation: www.balichildrenfoundation.org. Its main objective is to provide community education in remote areas of Bali.

Since July 2014, the BCF has increased their number of scholarships to cover the education of approximately 1000 students living across 30 communities and 2 children’s homes.

For the second time, this dynamic foundation has been organizing  the Go Study Auction on October 28th. The previous edition in April helped supporting 5 communities and 1 children’s home in West Bali.

Our team is very excited to support this great initiative for education of underprivileged children.

Traditional weaving looms… Puri Dajuma, Beach Eco-Resort & Spa, West Bali

Traditional weaving looms…

There is a kind of fascination to observe the patient work of skilled villagers working on traditional weawing looms in Negara,  not far from Dajuma.
The bobbin is loaded with a wire already tinted by segments, according to the pattern chosen by the artist. Operated by the weaver, the bobbin, by a continuous coming and going, will feed the frame. Ultimately, the so called “ikat” fabric slowly born with blur of the best effect, which is related to the vagueness of the craft machine.
A very interesting curiosity, part of our tour “Discover West Bali”!
On the picture, the ikat under weaving featuring the famous buffalo races (Mekepung) typical from West Bali.
