Bali Hati is a non-profit foundation established in February 1997 to promote the education and social welfare of the people of Bali. "Hati" means "heart" in Indonesian, and the name suggests that the heart, the beauty, of Bali is its people. Bali Hati is located in Ubud, the quiet rural mountain area in the centre of Bali.
