Om swastiastu!

This Campaign is to help Kanda Homestay's owner, and dear friend of mine, Jack and his family.

Kanda Homestay is located in the peaceful and authentic village of Sidemen in Bali, surrounded by rice fields and beautiful views on Mount Agung, the most important and revered place in Bali. Jack, born and raised in Sidemen, loves to welcome guests in his homestay and show them the village's life and green surroundings. It's a place to get an authentic experience and balinese hospitality.

As for many of us, this year has been very hard economically, and for Jack is no exception. The island of Bali has been closed for tourism since end of March, so Kanda Homestay didn't welcome any guests for most of the year, which for Jack was the main source of income pre-covid times. With the help of his second small business, a shop that sells baby-kids stuff, he has been able to live and help the rest of his family. However he would soon need to pay the anual rent to keep the shop open for next year.

In his attempt to create new sources of money for the future, Jack started a small vainilla farm that is ready to be planted. But in order for the vainilla to grow properly, it is necessary to build a greenhouse first which involves more costs that he can't afford at the moment.

Jack's priority has always been to help and provide for his family. He believes in the good that comes when people contribute with each other. So if you feel inspired after reading this and would like to donate to help Jack, he would be deeply grateful. Any amount is appreciated when it comes from the heart, and he would be very happy to meet you in person (or see you again!) and welcome you in Kanda Homestay, if you come to Bali.

Suksma <3

  • For anyone who wants to experience Bali minus the standard touristy hubs, please dont miss the amazing opportunity to stay with Jack. Staying in secluded Sideman, hiking up mount Batur for sunrise, fair and cheap transport and a willingness to go above and beyond to share true Balinese culture while still being super chill are just a few of the many things Jack provided for us. We wish we could do more! We love you and your fam! Xx

  • Hi everyone! My name is Renata and I have had the pleasure in 2019 to stay in Jack's homestay. Only one week I have been there, Jack become such an special person for me who at the time, had no friends around. He went beyond his obligations as a host and I could not describe his determination towards making things happen to his family and the ones around him. Jack and his family have such a great heart and deserve the best in this world! Please support this campaign!!!!!
