Community Outreach

Work with purpose

One of the fundamental reasons the founder Michael Craig started the Dojo was because he wanted to build a community & business that has purpose behind it. He believes that through creating a community of like-minded, talented individuals there is scope for positive change which can impact the wider global community

Causes we are currently involved with include finding ecological solutions for a cleaner and greener island and ocean, entrepreneurial-skills development for under-priviledged children, sustainable tourism and bringing clean water to rural Indonesia. We are committed to helping these causes find practical and educational solutions to combat the issues they are working on.

Get involved!

Once you are a member of Dojo Bali, you become part of the fabric of its community, and are able to influence its life, events, projects and growth.

Members can also get involved by the following:

  • Membership Subscription with percentages of profits going to grass root causes.
  • Personally register your interest to our Community Outreach Officer.
  • Look out for Dojo Community Meetings these are generally just kept private and posted within the facebook community.
  • Think about what skills you can share, and how much time you are prepared to give.

By paying your membership fee, your already making a contribution towards the further development of the tropical island paradise we all call home.

Who we support

There is so many great people our there doing so much postive things, lets get behind them.

Merah Putih Hijau
This organisation helps the local community to build infrastructure and a color coded waste separation strategy. Merah, Putih, Hijau means Red, White, Green which is the colour coding strategy used (the Red and White is the Indonesian flag, so MPH also means Indonesia going green). MPH is building a recycling & composting facility in Pererenan Village and a framework to be replicated across Bali.

MPH was formed in 2016, when a group of motivated people got together with the aim of improving Bali’s growing plastic and waste issues. The group is collaborating with Desa Pererenan, the local subak, residents, a local sustainability company and Dojo & its members to bring a scalable solution.

Bye Bye Plastic Bags
Bye Bye Plastic Bags is a social initiative driven by children, driven by the youth to get the people of Bali to say no to plastic bags. Founders and sisters, Melati (15) and Isabel (13) Wijsen started Bye Bye Plastic Bags 3 years ago when they were inspired by a lesson in class about significant people like Nelson Mandela, Lady Diana, Mahatma Ghandi.

They went home that day and thought “What can we do as children living in Bali, what can we do NOW.” Bye Bye Plastic Bags was born in 2013 and now has a volunteer team of 25-30 students from all schools around Bali, local and international.

Stella’s Child
Founded in 2013, Stella’s Child exists to support Indonesian youths from deeply disadvantaged backgrounds as they prepare to leave children's homes and orphanages and enter the world of work. We equip these youths, aged 12-19, with the skills they need to succeed in life and break the cycle of poverty for themselves and their families. Our innovative, interlinked programs provide the life skills, real world business experience and employment connections necessary to access job opportunities they would otherwise be denied.

Five Pillar Foundation

To develop the full potential of villages and communities using an integrated approach that considers the five pillars of economic, social, environment, educational, and cultural development.
