Bali relief fund created for local villages

In a bid to conserve indigenous cultures, customs and traditions, Govenor Pastika announced that he will allocate additional funds for local villages.

Bali’s Governor announced that he has allocated Rp55 million per year per village totaling to approximately Rp81,68 billion to provide the assistance necessary to maintain traditional villages throughout Bali as this is the essence of the tourism industry. With many young people leaving the villages and eschewing traditional roles, the traditional villages need funding to support them and keep them vital. Starting next year the government will offer grants to poor villages in an effort to maintain and preserve the cultural heritage of the island.
