Annika Linden is an incubator and centre of excellence for non-profits and social work. Home to four non-profits including DNetwork, Pusbadi Bali, YPK Bali and the Annika Linden Centre itself, it is a world class facility, providing access to quality services for people with disabilities from some of the most impoverished areas in Bali and Eastern Indonesia.

Students will be placed and work with the ALC team, DNetwork, YPK team and Pusbadi Bali to solve issues related to management and marketing for social enterprises and non-profits. Students will be exposed to challenges social businesses face in the Indonesian context and how they relate to the economic and social realties of the country.

This project could be of interest to students from Law, Business and Occupational Therapy.
