The Canggu Club is committed to our community and environment in Bali.
On a local level our activities include support to orphanages, disadvantaged children and ongoing education of our staff on Clean and Green policies.
Reducing waste is a particular concern in Bali. Every little step is important, but they can all add up quickly. Canggu Club has taken steps to reduce paper usage, recycle paper and plastic, use grey water for gardening, separate and recycle trash and use alternative bags rather than plastic. We encourage staff, members and guests to use their own water bottle for refilling due to environmental concerns and offer complimentary drinking water to refill.
The Canggu Clubs places high emphasis on helping those less fortunate to give something worthwhile back to the community.

On a personal note , I am living a dream heading the Outreach team as is what I had wanted to do for many years ….thank you for supporting my dream and hope we continue to change many more lives for the better! I am happiest in the slums where kids come to me , tug on my hand or tshirt for a hug or a plaster with a smiley face drawn on it. I walk round with kids holding my hand or tshirt hoping nobody is sick but normally there is ….people suffer in silence , hidden away and is an honour that they trust enough now to tell us! So many tales but an honour to be part of the team.
