Finns Bali is committed to on going support for the Yayasan Solemen Indonesia a non-profit Foundation primarily focusing their efforts on helping the disadvantaged in Bali.
Solemen merchandise is sold at Finns Beach Club shop, Splash shop located at Finns Recreation Club and at the Cubby House KIds Club. Donation boxes are to be found throughout the venues.
An annual Melbourne Cup event is held at Finns Venues, at which guest donations contribute toward the IDR 1,000,000,000 support (AUD 100,000) that Finns Bali gives to Solemen Indonesia and those the people in need.
Finns owner Mr. Subina and CEO Dewa Deny believe that becoming a major sponsor for sustainable funding to help the Solemen Foundation is absolutely what they really need to maintain and expand community programs.
Solemen’s founder Robert Epstone mentions that a major sponsorship such as provided by Finns Beach Club can make a massive difference by financing Solemen’s Outreach Program. Thanks to Finns annual, IDR 1 billion sponsorship Solemen can now seriously expand the reach of the Outreach Team. “Our dream is to have 8 teams on the road” says Robert, “each for a well-defined area of Bali. We are truly grateful for Finns generous corporate support because this partnership will make a profound impact and change so many lives.”

I have just woken to this email and am in tears …..thank you all so much for arranging such an amazing day and for your incredible support of Solemen. On a personal note , I am living a dream heading to the Outreach team as this 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 it is an honour that they trust enough now to tell us! So many tales, but an honour to be part of the team.
Sole Man Robert declared his intention to be barefoot until SOLEMEN had raised one million US Dollars. The reason for being barefoot is “to be in solidarity with those who don’t have a choice to wear or not wear shoes”.
Finns Ocmmunity Manager and the staff also regularly assist Solemen during outreach days and other activites.
