WHAT DOES THE PROJECT DO?

Learn more about the social, economic and environmental issues affecting modern Indonesia whilst teaching its future generations. Get involved in the vibrant and diverse Indonesian culture by working as a teacher.

Based in Indonesia’s picturesque island of Bali your help can give children a sense of confidence, encourage their enthusiasm and ambition, and even improve their opportunities for the future.

To teach, you will need to be patient, flexible, a confident communicator and able to use your initiative and imagination. Lessons will be fun and interactive, developing the children's confidence and conversational skills as well as raising awareness about environmental and social issues.

WHAT WILL I BE DOING?

Introduction week

Your first week is designed to give you an opportunity to explore the history and culture of Indonesia and of course Bali, with visits to local sites of special interest such as nearby markets, sample the local cuisine, familiarise yourself with Balinese customs and meet the local people, as well as hopefully learning some key phrases to help you get by.  Following this wonderful opportunity fully to immerse yourself in your new surroundings, your briefings for the volunteer work will begin along with language classes and cooking lessons throughout the week.

Teaching weeks

After the introduction to Balinese culture the work on the project will begin. You will be teaching 4-12 year olds in a local school. The children are incredibly friendly and eager to learn making your teaching experience as rewarding for you as it is for them. You may be shadowing a local teacher at the school or may be required to take control of your own lessons, with the level of responsibility you are given  depending on your length of stay. You will be encouraged to formulate ideas and develop your teaching skills and techniques.

It’s not just the work in the classrooms you’ll have to think about, as you will also have to organise innovative and effective lesson plans to teach new and varied subjects and then of course there may be homework to mark. As well as this you may have the opportunity to help with lots of extracurricular activities which will vary depending on your personal skills and interests, whether that’s helping organise a school show or playing football with the super competitive and skilful locals. Whatever you decide, you are sure to gain huge satisfaction from inspiring these kids, whilst enhancing your own skills and experience significantly.

During your free time at weekends you will have the opportunity to visit the many beaches, which are about an hour away by bus, including the idylic north coast.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I ARRIVE?

Upon arrival at Ngurah Rai International Airport, also known as Denpasar International Airport, on the Sunday, you will be met by a staff member from our local partner organisation and transported to your accommodation. Once you have had time to rest, staff will introduce you to your project and the local area. Please be sure to arrive between 6am and 8pm to qualify for a pickup. Pickup is available at an extra cost if you need to arrive outside these times.

WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?

Throughout your time on the project in Bali you will be staying in single sex shared rooms in a volunteer house in Ubud. Mosquito nets are provided at the volunteer house and there are bicycles for you to rent so you can get out and explore the local area. The volunteer house also has access to wifi and hand washing laundry facilities.

WHAT WILL I BE EATING?

Volunteers will be provided with 3 meals a day on weekdays, 2 meals a day on weekends. The food is traditional Balinese fair which is a fusion of Indonesian and Chinese styles, some of the most popular dishes being nasi goreng (Indonesian fried rice with a fried egg on top) and mie goreng (fried noodles with egg). Another Indonesian favourite is Satay (spicy marinated thin slices of meat, threaded onto a skewer, barbecued, and served with a spicy peanut sauce). All these delicious dishes are cheap and widely available.

ADDITIONAL OPPORTUNITIES

Bali has a huge range of additional adventure and cultural activities to offer outside your project time. Why not take a visit to some remote villages and mingle with the locals, take a rainforest canopy tour and if you’re feeling more adventurous there is even the opportunity to go white water rafting. Alternatively you could use your time off to go island hopping, scuba diving, volcano trekking or take wildlife safaris in one of the national parks.

After all that you will undoubtedly want to relax in one of Bali’s many spa resorts or pristine beaches. All of these activities can easily be arranged with the many local providers, meaning that your contribution to the local economy is even more significant.
