The Lion King focuses on the poorest and weakest people in Indonesia. The foundation runs an orphanage in Singaraga on the island of Bali where 42 orphaned and street children are lovingly given shelter by Frankie & Marinka Portier (founders).

The main philosophy of The Lion King concerning aid is to not make people dependant on aid, but to take care that organizations like the orphanage are run and managed by local people and the children receive an opportunity to provide for their own future by attending school.
