Friends of Lembongan logoFriends of Lembongan (FOL) is a community organisation established in 2012 by the owners of Sandy Bay Beach Club to promote the clean up of rubbish and the education of sustainable and safe waste management practices on the island of Nusa Lembongan. Aside from clean up programmes with the local schools – and more recently local businesses - FOL has also distributed over 3000 ‘tas pasar’ (canvas shopping bags) to the local shopkeepers to encourage them to replace their plastic bags with reusable canvas ones.

In May 2016 FOL teamed up with Bali Children Foundation (BCF) to open a classroom dedicated to teaching English to the local children so that by the time they leave school they will be able to be gainfully employed in the local tourism industry thus enabling them to stay in their village.  As of late 2017, FOL/BCF have three English classrooms operational in three different schools.  They also recently opened a computer classroom equipped with 18 student computers and one teacher computer so that basic computer skills can be offered to all teenagers by the time they graduate from high school.

English classes on Nusa Lembongan

BCF provide the expertise and FOL supply the funding.  To continue with FOL’s core objective, there is a strong environmental and ecological message to all the classes.

This is an initiative supported by all of us here at Nusa Lembongan Villas, and FOL is reliant on donations to keep these programmes running.  There is a donation box next to the cashier at Sandy Bay Beach Club and for any other types of donations please email shush@sandybaylembongan.com

Thank you for your support!
