Background

Bhakti Senang Hati foundation or Yayasan Bhakti Senang Hati Is The only foundation founded & run by people with Physical challengers in Indonesia special service for physical challengers in Bali Non-profit organisations such as Yayasan Senang Hati are important in Indonesia, as government funding for handicapped people is limited.

Without assistance from the private sector, many disabled Balinese people, including children, remain marginalized, thus limited,  from benefiting or contributing to society. In many parts of Indonesia, and certainly in Hindu Bali, having a disabled child is evidence of bad karma.

majority of Balinese people are Hindu. To be born with or to have a physical challenge is believed to be black magic, Bad Karma for the individual and or their family.

Many people believe that the child is being punished and a “bad” spirit of a deceased ancestor has been reincarnated in the child. Hence, a disabled child is a disgrace to the family. In the past these children were often hidden away in back rooms, were never sent to school, and received little or no medical care. Attitudes are changing but it is still not uncommon to come upon children, and sometimes even adults, who have been isolated in this way.

The Yayasan Bhakti Senang Hati , also known as Yayasan Bhakti Senang Hati, is a non-profit organization in Bali that assists people living with disabilities.
