Begin your Bali experience with an Introduction week. Packed full of exciting adventures, cultural excursions and interactions. It includes language lessons, visits to various temples around Bali, a walking tour of Ubud and the famous Monkey street, local art and cooking classes, traditional dance shows and flower arranging classes.
In many of the smaller villages in Bali, the local families aren’t supported by tourism in the same ways the bigger cities are. Through our Construction and Renovation project we help to relieve the community of some of the pressure they live under. We achieve this by working along side the local community in and around Ubud to build and renovate the local buildings that are integral to the growth and development of the village.
Under the coordination of a local foreman, volunteers work alongside local workers and families to construct and repair schools, libraries, playgrounds and other buildings that are essential for the development of the local community. Our project helps to support the community and assists in improving the living conditions within the village.
Volunteers will be expected to join ongoing and existing projects, as well as carrying out additional construction work that is required by the community. Some of this labour includes brick laying, carpentry, tile laying, painting, landscaping and gardening, so it is important that volunteers are willing and able to participate in hard physical and manual labour.
This project is more suited to the active and energetic types, who are happy to get their hands dirty and work hard under conditions that can sometimes be difficult and hot. It’s important to be respectful of the local culture, and be willing to adapt to the lifestyle whilst maintaining a cheerful and smiling disposition!
This is a team activity, so being able to work and cooperate as a team player is incredibly important. Throughout the project you will be working and meeting other volunteers, as well as coordinators and local Balinese people, being able to work efficiently and peacefully is a must!
Due to the nature of this work, being a creative person will help to ensure you get the most enjoyment out of this project!
