Testimonials

Thanks to SOLEMEN for the fantastic job they are doing in Bali Indonesia, they manage to bring many cultures together, bridging the gap to help the less fortunate in Bali.  Its fantastic to be able as an Australian, to see all the terrific work done by this highly motivated charity.  I currently run and operate businesses in Bali and also Australia and its such an honor to recommend them.
I am a British writer and photographer who has been resident in Indonesia since 2001. During that time I have supported many charitable organisations but have yet to find one that impacts so directly and so permanently improves the lives of some of the most impoverished, disadvantaged and often forgotten people in Indonesia.

Solemen raise awareness, provide tireless support and aims to generate self sufficiency wherever possible. But above all they do it with a passion that compels.

What places the foundation apart, in my opinion and one reason why people should support them, is that they do it in open view – it is probably the most transparent organisation of its type I have ever seen using social media and general media coverage not just to generate support but to display its own accountability – this, I believe has contributed to the many successes. But there is a mountain to climb and so I strongly urge you to support Robert and his team in any way possible.

If we all could give just a little, the world would be a better place. Thankyou for all the good work you do and your generosity in helping others.

Solemen will be the perfect choice [for volunteering]. For me they do a marvelous job, Robert Epstone and Sarah Chapman you should check on them. They do something real!

Not all charity organizations can be trusted but Solemen has a good name. I like the fact that you support different people in need and not just kids or animals. There are so many people that need help and care and I’m happy I found a reliable organization that I can support.
Marlies van den Berg, Destination Manager Indonesia
The press is only reinforcing what we already know – Solemen Indonesia, you rock! :D

Jen Tredinnick, Facebook friend
Your extraordinary commitment to raising awareness to help the poor and homeless children in Indonesia is a perfect example of how a few men and women can make a tremendous impact on peoples’s lives.
That’s the awesomeness of your projects Robert – it’s never about a life of self-perpetuating charitable help – you have the insight to give the most apporiate ‘fishing rod’ to develop a life of self-respect, dignity, self-sufficiency and the ability to help their own too.
