The ROLE Foundation has launched Bali Women and Girls International Skills Education (Bali WISE).

Bali WISE is a community-based program that supports skills education for women in some of the most deprived areas of Bali. The program aims to improve the education of women, enhance their empowerment, increase their skill-base within the community and reduce overall poverty.

Bali WISE estimates that over two hundred thousand women are illiterate in Bali, and close to five hundred thousand women lack the necessary vocational training required to secure a job. As traditional jobs in agriculture and fisheries have disappeared in recent years, there is now an acute need to educate women in vocational skills such as hospitality, administration and sales.

Bali WISE aims to increase employment opportunities by providing literacy education, life skills and vocational training at its learning and development centre in Nusa Dua. The program also fosters a culture of on-going learning to encourage the transfer of learnt skills from women to their children so that the welfare of disadvantaged and poor families can be improved in a sustainable manner.

Mike O’Leary, CEO of ROLE and founder of Bali WISE said: “I am delighted to announce the launch of the Bali WISE program. With the support from local and overseas companies and individuals, we are able to give back to this beautiful island in a sustainable and meaningful way through the education of women and girls.”

The Bali WISE learning and development centre has started with a program to educate 200 women. The centre also has a café and retail shop run by students to help with their training and to raise funds, and will be holding an annual fundraising event in October 2012.
