BALI SPORTS FOUNDATION

The Bali Sports Foundation (BFS) was formed to improve the lives of children with disabilities in Bali and East Indonesia by using the power of sport and play for development, health and peace. Winner of two editions of the SCC Soccer 6s Youth Tournament, Bali Sports Foundation (BSF), a registered Indonesian charity, shows that through sport, those living with a disability can demonstrate their strengths and not be categorised and stigmatised because of it.

In this regard sport can be seen as a stepping stone for those living with disabilities (and their families) to move from isolation in a karmic society like Bali, into the mainstream and also educate those who do not have a disability to understand that those that do, have rights that include being able to fully participate in society and not face discrimination. BSF firmly believes that sport has the power to change lives for the better, particularly for those living with a disability.
