Goddess Kitchen

Born from the simple desire to help, Goddess Kitchen is an entirely non-profit organization, that makes and distributes food and other fundamental necessities to vulnerable women and young girls on the island of Bali. Covid-19 has caused extreme hardship in Bali that depends on tourism, and single women and mothers have been impacted heavily with no support to get their basic needs met, such as daily food. Since 2020 we  contributed our premises, staff, and resources along with weekly donations to provide care packs and cooked meals for as many at-risk women and children & families as we possibly can. We have now partnered with Bali Crisis Kitchen to provide on-going financial donations and continue the support of those families as we return to full time work on the retreats. If you would also like to help support a local family to eat, 100% of donated funds go directly to purchasing food and products for weekly care packs.

Little Steps Matter

We offer support to many charities in Bali through our Goddess Give Back Initiative, and for 2022 we wanted to provide some extra help to the big hearted charity Little Steps Matter that tirelessly works on reducing unnecessary suffering and the number of unwanted animals in Bali.

Little Steps Matter is a non-profit organization with that is committed to the neglected animals in Bali by providing medical care and spaying/neutering to Bali’s furry friends.
