Causes and initiatives we support
What goes around comes back around – this is the foundation we are trying to build the adventure called My Barefoot Journey. Each one of our projects is possible only with the help and support of the community from the area the retreat is being organized. Thus, we are striving to give back as much as we can and also each one of our actions must have a positive outcome or effect on the local economy.
The retreats located in Bali are organized with the help of Shanti Toya Ashram, a place that takes into the core of balinese life and faith. We try to help the ashram through volunteering initiatives and donations. If you wish to offer support to any of the causes we are trying to help, you are more than welcome to contribute with a donation, a bank transfer or any other way suits you. The ashram is a very important part of the local community of Mengwi, helping its people, therefore books, clothing items, toiletries and many other things are always needed. Also, the ashram is opened to any volunteering initiatives, welcoming people willing to help. If you are interested in helping this cause, you can find out more, here.

Another programme we are trying to help is the orphanage in Ubud. By donating 150$ per year, you can help a child stay in school, thus making it possible that he or she continues his or her education. For more information, you can always contact Aya directly:
