Hey! Let's Talk About HIV & AIDS With AYO! – Ubud, Bali

Hey! Let's Talk About HIV & AIDS With AYO!

BaliSpirit Karma Yoga outreach program established the AYO! Kita Bicara HIV & AIDS (Hey! Let's Talk HIV and AIDS) program in 2010 in response to the critical need for HIV & AIDS education in Bali. The AYO! program empowers teenagers to guard their own physical and emotional health and act with empathy toward others within their community. In 4 years, AYO! has held workshops in 71 high schools in 9 kabupaten (districts) in Bali and reached over 3,360 students, 150 teachers, 18 facilitators, and thousands of people weekly during its AYO! Broadcasts.

We know what those letters stand for: Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) which causes Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS). We know the importance of getting tested, we know HIV is not a death sentence, we know the difference between the urban myths and fact surrounding HIV & AIDS, but not everyone has this gift of understanding. In Indonesia, where reproductive health and sex education is not in the school curriculum, there is a huge knowledge gap. This lack of knowledge is incredibly dangerous.

As of the end of 2014, Bali has over 9,477 recorded cases of HIV, but an estimated 30% of new cases go unreported each year. More than 40% of reported cases are young people aged 15 - 29. Although nearly 60 testing and treatment clinics are now open throughout Bali, comprehensive sex and HIV/AIDS education have yet to be incorporated into public school curriculum.


  • MAKE A DONATION - Onsite at the Festival's venues, at Yoga Barn, Kafe, or through PayPal (contact to donate).
  • Buy a VIP ticket to the Bali Spirit Festival and a portion of your ticket will go straight to the AYO! project.
  • Consider donating the cost of one yoga class at The Yoga Barn. The cost of one class can really help prevent the spread of HIV & AIDS, reduce the stigma, and end discrimination in Bali.

Bali Regreen – Composting & Seedling Bamboo Development, controlling, irrigation, Empowering the local community and farmers.

Bali Regreen

Bali Regreen is a sustainable environmental project aiming to fight land degradation in the island's driest areas while also educating and training the people who inhabit the land. It is one of the most exciting projects in the region, with an emphasis on long term economic benefits for some of Bali's poorest people.

Although Bali seems incredibly lush and vibrant, there are huge tracts of the island, specifically in the East, that suffer from extreme dryness and as a result, little to no vegetation. Due to these conditions, the communities inhabited in these damaged areas are of the poorest in Bali.

BaliSpirit Festival and Yayasan Kryasta Guna have partnered with the Environmental Bamboo Foundation (EBF) in an effort to help poor communities in Desa Songan, East Bali since 2011.

Desa Songan is located in the caldera of Batur volcano and is one of the 82 poorest villages in Bali, with almost 35% of it's 8,000 people living below the poverty line. Not only do these people have to overcome the daily obstacle of a harsh environment with land degradation, but also have a lack of economic opportunity.

At BaliSpirit, we believe regreening is more than looking after and giving back to the earth; it is also about looking after its people.

BaliSpirit, Yayasan Kryasta Guna, & EBF have planted 4,300 seedlings to help these poor and arid villages, helping to bring water to the arid land and rehabilitate it. But we don't stop there. Our extended team of staff and volunteers also train village farmers to care for the soon-to-be bamboo forest on their previously unproductive land, while simultaneously developing a small-scale micro-economy in these affected communities.

You can support this initiative in the following ways:

  • PURCHASE TICKETS - $10.00 from every BaliSpirit Festival 2016 Full Festival or VIP Pass Purchase will go to support the Bali ReGreen program in 2016. Go here to buy your ticket now
  • MAKE A DONATION - Festival Guests can also make private donations of onsite at the Festival's venues, or through PayPal (contact to donate).
  • TAKE INITIATIVE - Visit the EBP website at and find out how to get more involved.

Yayasan Widya Sari - Supporting Underprivileged Balinese Children By Balinese People

Yayasan Widya Sari

Yayasan Widya Sari is a unique foundation located in the heart of a small, rural village in Bali, Indonesia. At the foundation we offer local Balinese students the opportunity to learn English and gain the confidence needed to obtain work outside their remote village community.

Widya Sari invites international volunteers to spend time in a traditional fishing village where their skills and knowledge will go a long way in the lives of the students. When you teach here, you are fully immersed into one of the most unique cultures in the world and the staff and students, all local Balinese, make you feel like part of a large family.

Yayasan Widya Sari, is run by a young committed man, Ketut, originally from the Tianyar region in Bali himself. He is proudly passionate about providing the children from his and surrounding villages with the passion to learn and the drive to reach beyond. Ketut himself is living proof of the power people have to bring positive change and support to those in need in this rapidly changing world.

Yes, we mean those tourists' favorite destinations. More importantly, Balinese see beaches and sea as sacred area where ritual ceremonies being held frequently.

Our strength is in creating community-based conservation that respects the interdependence of WILDLIFE, HABITAT and local COMMUNITY. We have projects on going in Bali and in Borneo.

FNPF invites volunteers to help on our project sites, working alongside local Indonesians in Nusa Penida (Bali) and in Kalimantan (Borneo) or doing scientific research, and also raising funds from home, or donating equipment from their business. Prices, schedule and application form to volunteer with us are available on our website

Using this holistic approach, FNPF's Bali Starling conservation project on Nusa Penida has saved the Bali's emblem bird (Bali Starling) from becoming extinct in the wild, and has resulted in local workers choosing to help FNPF relocate orangutans to safety from the palm oil plantations (where typically they are killed) to Tanjung Puting National Park and Lamandau River Wildlife Reserve.
