A New Board of Trustees for the Bali Sari Foundation
A long journey, but an absolute necessity!
Since long time, the Indonesian foundation (BSF) (encouraged by the Fair Future Foundation (FFF)) wanted to renew its foundation board. In fact, Indonesian laws require every Indonesian foundation to renew its foundation board every 5 years. We have chosen to take action and make this huge change, linked to an abosolue necessity.
The Indonesian foundation (BSF) was disturbed by difficulties related to its former management, which did not seem to be more interested in their activities, especially in regard to their personal commitment in the mission of the FFF, its core values and in all its socio-medical care programs. We take advantage of these few lines to thank the former members for their work and wish them good luck for their future activities.
In order to respect the local laws regarding Indonesian foundations, the FFF therefore mandated a lawyer and took the necessary steps to precede these important changes in favor of our local organization BSF. These steps were long and tedious because it was not easy at all, it was an incredible "obstacle course" if you pardon the expression ...
A new beginning, new adventures and new programs. Today, after the storm, the sun is shining again!
Today, as I write these few lines, everything is back in place, the new foundation board is now appointed and in charge. In addition, this new board has the necessary political legality, the confidence of the Swiss FFF to restart all the programs of the local foundation and finally, to devote itself to the total opening of our new hospital and increase the socio-medical activities of the FFF in Indonesia.
The new foundation board is made up of 5 people who have been active for a long time with the foundation. From the old team, only Mrs. Kadek Suwitri stayed because of her devotion, her honesty and her courage to overcome the trials were not in vain. Kadek Suwitri is now the President of the Indonesian BSF and, after more than eight years of activity with us, it was obvious that Kadek took this position with high responsibilities.
Pande Julia Sanjaya is he is the new director of the BSF, and it is well deserved. It is a very logical choice that leaves no room for doubt. Pande Julia Sanjaya has been with us for more than 7 years and after starting at Fair Warung Balé, he has risen through the ranks, did some management training, and demonstrated above-standard socio-economic skills in project and team management.
Pande Julia Sanjaya and the other members of the foundation have completed this process of changing the management of the BSF. Without him, without them, nothing could have been done.
The other members are described in the slider that you can see in the post header. Ista is the new treasurer, Wayan the new BSF supervisor and Yande the new BSF secretary, all are very competent and involved since long time in the BSF activities. All have been active for more than 5 years in the socio-medical activities of the Bali Sari Foundation. Many documents are available about the BSF legality here.
We wish them good luck with their new activities, lots of fun, happiness to help those in their flesh, suffer.
Alexandre Wettstein – Founder, president of the Fair Future Foundation.
