“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
Handara was built in 1974 by Mr. Ibnus Sutowo for two main missions: to spread his passion for golf to people in Indonesia and to support the local communities. He succeeded in doing both – he was recognized as the Father of Golf in Indonesia and he was able to give employment to the residents in the surrounding villages.
In 2015, the brand new management team is committed to continue his Legacy. The staff at Handara is mostly made up of local residents who have been working working for years, if not decades. Aside from supporting our staff internally, we’re committed to help the wider community by implementing quarterly CSR programs.
The pioneer program was implemented on May 6, 2016. Packages of daily necessities (i.e. Rice, sugar and washing detergent) bought with proceeds from the first quarter were distributed to more than 200 people from 8 villages around the resort. The success of the first program made us more determined to continue the legacy to support the local community.
The second CSR program was on 27 July 2015. We shifted our focus to supporting students going back to
school. We went to 5 different schools and kindergartens in the area to distribute notebooks and stationery to the children. Seeing the timid but joyful smiles of the kids was the most encouraging thing for us to continue this worthy cause.
On the third program, we were very grateful that our loyal patrons the Darwin Group contributed some funding for our CSR efforts. Combined with charity proceeds from the Hackers & Slackers Fun Golf Carnival, the donation was used to deliver baby goods to more than 400 babies and toddlers in the area on September 15, 2015. We’re humbled that other entities have started to trust and support us doing this worthy cause.
Our last program of the year was held with the support from The Yak Inaugural Golf Invitation on November 30, 2015. With our own CSR funds and donation from the tournament’s participants, we wanted to show our appreciation to our loyal caddies who have been supporting Handara’s guests by delivering daily goods to families of the 130 caddies.
We are all here on Earth on a mission, and one of them is to help others. No matter our differences in background or religion, we are obliged to encourage each other to spread love and kindness. We, the Management of Handara Golf & Resort Bali, ‘will do the best we can with this life to be of use’ especially to the poor and the orphan community. We are committed to help the wider community by implementing CSR Program.
On June 15, 2016, the Management of Handara Golf & Resort Bali visited Nawa Kerti Village in Karangasem, East Bali where thousands of Bali residents live in extreme poverty. The soil is dry and infertile and most of the village residents are very poor and have restricted access to clan water and electricity. Package of daily necessities (i.e rice, oil, sugar, washing detergent and soap) was supported by our loyal patrons the Jester Groups and Handara’s family and friends.
We presented the daily goods package to 402 families living under the poverty line. We hope to continue supporting them in the future.
We thanks to our golfers, friends and family for making this happen
The sun shines bright, the fogs cover the hills and the smell of wet grass chills our bones every morning. During this Emotional Intelligence Awareness month, happiness is shared with a lot of people, especially Handara golfers, underprivileged orphan children and special needs children. With a lot of fun prizes, Golfers are gathered in our Handara Golf & Resort to attend our yearly Hackers & Slackers Fun Golf Carnivale as part of our commitment to continue the legacy of giving back to the community in our CSR Program. We were raising funds as well as reaching out to children in need and were supported by a lot of partners such as Nurul Quran Bali, Larondendari Bali, Mom’s and I, Bali Adventure Tours and many more. We’re humbled that other entities have started to trust and support us doing this worthy cause.
Our 2nd Hackers & Slackers Fun Golf Carnivale at Handara Golf & Resort was a great success. With the objection to share happiness with children, especially underprivileged and those with special needs, we invited a total of 50 orphan kids to join us at this year’s Carnivale on the 24th of September 2016. Young and old enjoyed a day full of sunshine, lots of laughters and fun together. To make this happen we were supported by our partners Bali Adventure Tours and Mom’s & I. Handara Golf & Resort is proud to receive their support as well as their trust in us organizing the Hackers & Slackers Fun Golf Carnivale tournament for the second time already. All the funds that have been raised that day will be used for the Handara CSR Program in order to give back to the community and to put a smile on many other children’s faces.
The main mission of the second Hackers & Slackers Fun Golf Carnivale at Handara Golf & Resort was to support a worthy cause and make children smile and happy. In order to make this happen we were coordinating the efforts not only with our supporting partners Bali Adventure Tours and Mom’s & I, but also with Nurul Quran Bali, an orphan care program, and Larondedari Bali. The children’s boutique Larondedari participated by giving one of its gorgeous looking princess dresses to be auctioned during the award ceremony, where 100% of its proceeds go to the Handara Golf & Resort Corporate Social Responsibility Program (CSR).
With Nurul Quran’s orphan care program, the proceeds have been well received by following orphanage houses and organization:
1. Rumah Singgah Yatim dan Dhuafa Pelangi Anak Negeri Denpasar
2. Yapenatim Gianyar
3. Yayasan Panti Asuhan Tunas Bangsa Denpasar
4. ZIS Miftahul Falah Sanur Denpasar
5. Panti Asuhan Yayasan Yatim Piatu Singaraja
6. Panti Asuhan Yappenatim (yayasan Penolong Pendidikan Anak Yatim dan Miskin) Denpasar
And together with Larondedari Bali, the proceeds go to Yayasan Widya Guna WINS Foundation, a home and learning center for underprivileged and special needs children.
We’re planning to have the next CSR program at the end of the year. Should you wish to join this good cause, please don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com. We look forward to your continued support to spread love and care to the wider community.
