Bali is one of the more than 17,000 islands that make up the Indonesian archipelago. As a result of Bali’s unique culture and religion, which differs from the rest of the country, it is often considered a destination of its own.
This project aims to build and renovate buildings that are essential for the growth and development of the local community. Schools, playgrounds and public libraries are some of the places where volunteers can expect to be working, Volunteer tasks vary depending on the local community needs at the time of your volunteering.
General tasks may include:
Internet: WiFi is available in public areas.
Laundry: There are laundry services available for use for a small fee located around the village.
Accommodations: Volunteers will stay in shared, single-gender, dorm-style rooms. There are two centers available on this program and both locations have a cool space for participants to interact and enjoy their time in Bali. Bathrooms are shared and Western-style toilets are available. There is a pool open year-round that is less than a five-minute walk from the accommodation. There will be four-eight volunteers per room, with clean bed linens, hot showers, and fans. There is no air conditioning within the facility and volunteers must bring their own towels with them for showering.
Food: During the week, breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided. Traditional Indonesian food will be served and you can expect to experience a myriad of flavors and diverse dishes during your stay. Typical meals include Mie Goreng (fried noodles and vegetables), Nasi Goreng (fried rice and vegetables) or Gado Gado (mixed vegetables with a satay sauce). For those who do not eat meat, Indonesian cooking uses a lot of tofu and tempeh (soybeans).Some western dishes will also be available. Breakfasts tend to vary and may include pancakes, toast, fresh fruit, etc. Tea, coffee and drinking water are also available at the house. On weekends, two meals (breakfast and dinner) will be provided.
Please take note of this project’s minimum requirements:
Bali is one of the thousands of islands that make up Indonesia. Indonesia is a very unique country home to hundreds of ethnic groups speaking many different languages. In 2015 the population was recorded at 255,461,700 and growing, which means there is no shortage of diversity here. The geography of Indonesia is very diverse and changes drastically depending on your location. It includes volcanoes, beaches and jungles, which shelter a wide array of animals including tigers, elephants and komodo dragons.
The Indonesian customs are embedded throughout their culture and can be seen in every corner of the islands. Each island practically has its own unique set of traditions, which are different from one another. There are roughly 20,000 temples spread around the island of Bali and, because the Balinese are masters of sculpture, the temples are guarded by elaborate statues of gods and goddesses. During your trip, take advantage of your free time on weekends and explore some of these magnificent temples and sculptures. Take in the distinct culture and traditions of each island as you travel from place to place.
