Taking Kids to Court

Sourcing Bali Installs Basketball Court for the Kids at a Tabanan Orphanage.


Sourcing Bali, a company that provides supply and purchasing services for Indonesian products, has been an active supporter of Panti Asuham Salam, a Christian orphanage located in Tabanan that cares for 46 children, ranging in age from 4-17.

Since 1998, Sourcing Bali, with the help of generous donors from around the world, has helped the orphanage construct new bathrooms, a kitchen, a dining area and undertake general renovation projects at the facility.

Due in part to Sourcing Bali's interest in the orphanage and the publicity this has generated, the list of those supporting the children has grown.

In July of 2005, Desmond James and his Sourcing Bali team set the ambitious goal of undertaking a Rp. 120 million project (approximately US$ 13,000) at the orphanage that include a renewal of the sewage system, drainage system, laundry facility and the installation of a basketball court. Over half the required funds were covered by donations with the balance covered by Sourcing Bali.

The Court was officially "inaugurated" on Friday, September 1, 2006, in a series of friendly matches between the 60 staff of the company and the children of Panti Asuham Salam. On the day of the game the "angels" of Sourcing Bali arrived with t-shirts and basketballs.

We're uncertain of the final score in the games that followed. We are, however, firm in the knowledge that the kids came out as the final winners.

Good one, Desmond!
