"Every time I look up and see the stars at night, I see there's hope in the future," Made Sumerta says. The artisan from Bhakti Senang Hati works in Balinese sono wood, carving a beautiful star. Worn on a necklace of black cotton cords, the pendant celebrates his unique skill and talent. "As a child, I suffered poliomyelitis, which weakened my legs and I can't go anywhere myself. But I can create something useful and beautiful with my own two hands," the artisan says.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

The seven artisans that are members of the foundation use either a wheelchair or have an artificial leg. This does not stop them from living a full life and striving to be self-sufficient.

The Bakti Senang Hati Foundation assists persons living with disabilities. Living with a disability can be more difficult in Bali than in other places. Bali's Hindu culture carries with it the additional stigma of karma. To be disabled is the physical manifestation of bad karma. Traditionally, the disabled were hidden away and isolation was added to their burden. Attitudes are slowly changing and programs such as the Bakti Senang Hati Foundation teach self-confidence as well as the practical skills that will enable their members to become self-supporting.

Although their Novica sales do not provide enough income for each artisan to be self-supporting, these sales have a profound impact on their lives. The income contributes not only to their financial stability but also to their self-esteem. It is important to these artisans that their work is seen and appreciated around the world.

There are eight children that the Bakti Senang Hati artisans are able to provide for.

The Bakti Senang Foundation provides for the education of eight children.
