Our club support them that day with club funding, sacks of rice and face masks. Thanks for your kind and loving hearts for community in Bali
Congratulations are in order On June 29, 2020, Rotary Club Bali Ubud Sunset [RCBUS] announced its new Board of Directors: Kartika Dewi will serve as President and Immediate Past President, Kadek Erawan as President Elect, Brian Goldman as Treasurer, Sue Bishop as Secretary, Ray Bishop as Fundraising Chair, Marion Hook as Communications Chair, and Dora as Youth Community services. The properly socially distanced meeting was held at Café Hana in Ubud. Members also joined in via Zoom from as far away as Australia as we embraced the “new normal”. Hans Schmid was welcomed as RCBUS’ newest member.
RCBUS proudly continues to grow its membership, even during the current chaotic social environment. We are able to do this because we are Rotarians committed to providing and competing projects that have a lasting, positive impact on the local community.
We may be a small group of people, but we have instituted positive, sustainable change. An example – Last year our new Board members and club member were announced during a meeting at Tegal Dukuh Camp in Taro. Its owner, environmentalist Wayan Wardika, told us of his ideas to improve the physical and economic environment of the region. RCBUS raised money to purchase a machine for Wayan that chops organic waste into compost. The machine has been purchased from funds members raised on 3 different continents and is in use. As a result, compost can now be made quickly, so almost all the area’s organic waste is being converted into compost. That compost is being distributed to local farmers who are using it to grow food for their families and their livestock and to sell in the markets. People are eating healthier food and living in a less toxic, more chemical free environment. Less refuse is being taken to landfills which are actually overflowing. Extra compost is being sold to private homeowners, hotels, resorts and restaurants to use in their landscaping. That improves the economy tremendously in the Taro area. RCBUS helped to literally change the physical environment, the economic environment and the health of this beautiful village. Wayan, who is orchestrating this wonderful endeavor, said that he was so excited when the machine arrived, he forgot to eat lunch.
Projects for 2020 include the following:
