In Balis paradisiacal northeast coast, in the sleepy coastal village of Tulamben (well known by the scuba diving crowd), The Diving Helper Club, established in 1978 and made up of women, carries SCUBA equipment for tourists along the beach.
The nominal fee charged by the porters helps generate extra income for their families. The sun is merciless, the terrain covered in large round stones, and the gear heavy. The ladies don’t flinch, dont complain and have unbelievable strength. Inspiring!
