Magellan’s proudly supports these international volunteer organizations.
Bali Life Foundation
On a 2005 visit to Bali, Indonesia, Australians Brad and Siska Little met a 9 year old boy living on the streets of Kuta who asked if he could live with them. Although they were unable to offer him a place in their home, that meeting awakened a deep desire to help the street children of Bali.
Partnering with their church, they founded the Bali Life orphanage in 2006, which offers neglected, abandoned and orphaned kids a safe and nurturing haven, providing food and clothing, emotional support, and teaching the skills necessary for them to become independent and responsible adults.
