The Story of Mike O’Leary (Founder)

Mike O’Leary was an Australian surfer and a former businessman. In 1985, he started his business in Bali and since 2005 decided to live there. He founded R.O.L.E. Foundation in 2007, because he noticed waste everywhere in Indonesia, even on uninhabited islands. Being aware of the absence of regulated waste management systems in Bali and its effect on the environment and the health of the local communities, he felt the urge to do something about this. R.O.L.E. Foundation was founded with the idea to improve the waste management system in Bali by educating communities. R.O.L.E. is an acronym for Rivers, Oceans, Land, and Ecology. 

Mike built an environmental education center in Sawangan to focus on environmental training. He also created Bali WISE in Nusa Dua, focusing on skills training for marginalized women.

Mike passed away in the end of 2019, leaving behind the legacy of R.O.L.E. Foundation and a passionate team of people.
