Celebrating the International Women’s Day, Bali WISE held their annual fundraising and awards night at The Apurva Kempinski Bali on Tuesday 10th March 2020. MC’d by Alistair Speirs with Guests of Honour Ms. Happy Salma and Ms. Anthea Griffin, thirteen extraordinary women were awarded within three categories, Environmental Conservation and Stewardship, Businesswoman of the Year and Inspiring Change Maker of the Year. With the theme “Daughters of the Earth”, the event highlighted the important link between educating women and environmental sustainability.
Accompanied by a four-course dinner and free flow wine sponsored by Plaga, guests and awardees enjoyed an evening full of entertainment in the name of a good cause, featuring an incredible performance by Lisa Soul and our very own Bali WISE students.
After a joyful night, the guests didn’t go home empty handed. Each guest received a bar of sweet and savoury chocolate from POD Chocolate, a delicious coffee from Island Coffee, and an environmental-themed clay dish made by our Bali WISE students.
With the support from all attendees and also those who joined our online auction, together BaliWISE raised Rp. 413,535,000 for the program to provide education and skills training to marginalized women!
We want to say thank you to everyone for their love and support. We hope to see you again at our next event!
