Walk With Me is an initiative aiding the Teratai Foundation in the continuation of the community center of arts, sustenance, and shelter for the visually impaired.
Teratai Foundation has been severely impacted by Covid-19 in losing its founder Didon Kecang to the virus in late 2020. The passing of Didon left a gigantic hole in the organization. He was a man of theater, arts, and music that brought the community center to life. Not only was he the lifeblood of the blind community, but he also was the leader of the organization in fundraising and public awareness.
Now in 2023, we are calling on you and your friends to get involved in supporting the Teratai Foundation and Bali Bersama Bisa.
SERVICES FOR VISION IMPAIRMENT IN INDONESIA ARE MINIMAL, YOU CAN HELP!
Walk With Me

The journey will vary from hotel to hotel, but you will be blindfolded and be asked to walk down the beach for 1/2km in one direction, turn around and walk back.
