Welcome to Indonesia Sole Men

Our mission is to help cases of individual suffering in Bali

Yayasan Sole Men Indonesia (Sole Men), an Indonesian registered non-profit Foundation, was formed in October 2010 to raise awareness and provide funds to support accredited agencies and projects for the disadvantaged in Bali. Sole Man Robert declared his intention to be barefoot until SOLE MEN 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”.


Sole Men‘s first ‘awareness’ 535km barefoot walk around Bali was not just a ‘walk’. The Sole Men held frequent health education checks and made presentations in schools, orphanages and villages together with a medical team from Anak Anak Bali (Bali Kids). The Sole Men also taught the children to be aware of and how to clean up their immediate environment.


As well as raising awareness, we are now primarily focusing our efforts on helping cases of individual suffering in Bali, Indonesia. We are constantly looking for donations not just in monetary terms but also food, clothing, mobility/disability aids, sponsors and more. Please review our wish list to view what is currently needed.


We here at Sole Men hope that you can help us help them as well as enjoying the beautiful island that is Bali.
