ABOUT THE BPPAI

The Association was incorporated in September 2008 and has rigorously complied with State and Federal Government regulations controlling its conduct since it was formed. The Association is particularly fastidious about compliance, given the history of a previous organisation with a similar name, the Bali Peace Park Foundation (NSW) of which there is unequivocally no connection, unfortunately however, the BPPAI is on occasions quite incorrectly interpreted by some as being the same organisation.

  • The Association was granted Registered Charity status by the WA Government in 2009, after demonstrating required compliance and accountability standards.
  • It was granted Deductible Gift Recipient status (DGR - allowing tax deductible donations) by the Federal Government in 2009. This status can take up to 5 years to secure, and requires organisations to be overseen by Trustees, each of whom have been personally vetted by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and comply with strict rules as to their professions, qualifications and police clearances. The Trustees, who oversee day-to-day administration are named on the Association web site and work independently of the Board. Given the usual amount of time taken for DGR status the BPPAI is pleased to be recognised by the ATO as being compliant in all respects.
  • Government figures backing the Association include Bali Governor Made Pastika, former and current Australian Prime Minister’s and Foreign Affairs ministers along with Western Australian Premier Colin Barnett.
  • In 2010, Balinese and Australian governments have been kept informed of project developments on a regular basis, often weekly.
  • The project formed part of Prime Minister Rudd’s foreign affairs brief for his meeting with Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in Canberra in March 2010.

The main focus of the BPPAI has been firstly to secure the site and then undertake a fundraising campaign to assist meeting the cost of the land purchase and the construction of the Peace Park and Museum development.

  • All funds are totally accounted for in accordance with ATO regulations. .
  • While major private and public funding is being actively pursued, as mentioned above the Association’s priority at this point is securing the former Sari Club site. To this end, a landmark meeting was held on 25 February 2010, attended by two Association negotiators, two representatives of the landowner and two mediators/observers from the Governor’s office. Negotiations were extremely positive although in the interests of all parties and at the request of the land owner remain confidential at this time.

The Bali Peace Park and Museum project is being driven by the BPPAI but is not just for Australians.

It is also for the Balinese victims, their families, and the people of Bali.

It is for the 22 nations of other victims.

It will be available for people of all nations, to honour not only victims of the Bali bombings, but victims of any event, or occurrence that obstructs world peace and the right to live our lives without threat.

It is simply a place to reflect on what may have been, and what could be.

Total deaths from both Bali bombings is 227 with the Australian death toll being 92 and injury toll numbers can be measured as being in the hundreds.

To put this into perspective, considering the death toll and injury toll, hundreds of families have been affected directly.

Add to this number the relatives of the victims, add further to the number, their network of friends, their sporting clubs, their team mates, then there are the communities that these victims came from and surviving victims are apart of, and the number of Australians affected by these events could conceivably run into the millions.

This figure can be multiplied many times over taking into account the other 21 nations involved.

The Bali Peace Park Association Inc remains committed to this project and looks forward to achieving the desired outcome in the near future.
