Bali's "Cultural Wealth" Project
WOW Cultural Wealth Collaboration aims to bring back the understanding of what it means to have cultural identities and what this abundance truly offers. Just a generation ago, the people of Bali lived among the prosperity of their land; yet today, they seem to have abandoned their sustainable and holistic life. We have decided to tackle this paradigm shift and see how far we can try to regain the Balinese path to sustainable living.
In collaborations with Jodie Oshea Orphanage and the Mansion Baliwood Resort, WOW will implement our internationally recognized and award0winning "Celebrations Programs" as an enrichment programs for the "at-hope" youths in the summer of 2014. Our goals are to develop sustainable and wellness skills for these children so that they can sustain their living and learning abilities and wellbeing; participate as global contributors in the 21st century.
WOW Youth's Bootcamp Proposal
MaJayJay "Smart Center"
This project was inspired by our first meeting with Mayor Tino Rodillas at the Costales Nature Farms on 23 May, 2014. The mayor mentioned a key problem in his municipality—the lack of interest of Majayjay youths in organic agriculture as a way of life and a way to embrace their culture. This issue resonated with WOW co-founder Hai Dai, who recalled his experience helping the youths in Hawaii, USA and in Bali, Indonesia.
Despite the potential of agriculture as a rewarding profession for a majority of our rural population, a growing number of our youths has become disinterested in an agrarian lifestyle. Our countryside continues to experience migration of young talents to the cities or to overseas in search of the proverbial “greener pasture.” While we grant our youths the freedom to decide their own future, we at the same time have failed to present them with the option of remaining in their rural hometowns and participate in the sustainable development of agricultural lands and the preservation of their local cultures.
If we are to dream of sustainability and wellness in living, we must educate our youths and influence them to go back to a natural, organic way of living, to promote a healthy lifestyle in a holistic coexistence.

Bindu "Smart Center"
Pak Gusti a visionary in the Village of Bindu. The eldest of four brothers, Pak Gusti has witnessed generations of youths leaving the village and not return. After leaving for National University and getting caught up in the stress of college life, many youths tend to stray away from the simplicity of life in their village. They are trapped in the rat race, in the pursuit of empty material wealth. They abandon the land that they should inherit from their forefathers, they forsake their ancestral life and abandon their legacy.
To encourage the youths to reacquaint themselves with their culture, Pak Gusti has offered WOW 5 hectares of pristine land outside of Ubud for the development of a regenerative "smart center." Pak Gusti hopes to protect his own children and grandchildren from the crass emptiness of modern life, from the blind pursuit of environmentally damaging materialism.
