Education can build peace & Break the cycle of poverty

About us


DAMARA is a non-profit organisation, founded by I Nengah Swikrama, and proudly supported by Villa Bugis. Our main aim is supporting a better life for the children from poor farming families in Bali.

Damara Bali Foundation was established in 2015 and registered as a non-profit Indonesia Foundation (Yayasan) with the Indonesia Ministry of Law and Human Rights Indonesia.

Swikrama grew up in an orphanage and received education thanks to the support of other people’s generosity. He has worked for over 30 years to assist children living in orphanages. For the last 8 years before starting Damara he was the Director of Widhya Asih, managing an organisation that provides homes and education to over 500 children and helps with many community projects.
