Elephant conservation in Sumatra
Lampung, Sumatra          February 27 - March 7, 2016

Volunteer project: Currently the conflict between elephants and humans is rising because there's less area for the elephants to live in. Elephants are being squeezed into a smaller area, since the local farmers plant the crops and elephants like to eat them. The elephants frequently raid and destroy the crops which causes a conflict between people and elephants. Due to this reason, the local government and organizations, concerned about the wildlife are working together to save and conserve the elephants and reduce the conflict.

This volunteer project aims to assist the conservation efforts of the Elephant Conservation Centre in Way Kambas National Park in Lampung province, southern Sumatra. Presently, there are about 65 tamed elephants being taken care of by the conservation center, while 200 elephants live wildly in the forest.

The volunteers will help local mahouts daily to take care of the elephants including bathing/showering, feeding, health checking and grassing the elephants. One local mahout will be accompanied by one volunteer in doing the daily job.

Leisure time: During the free time, the volunteers may have a forest safari with a local mahout with a camp fire, fishing, as well as swimming in the middle of the forest. The volunteers can enjoy the beauty of the landscape and wildlife around the project site.

Language: English

Accommodation: The volunteers will be accommodated in the Elephant Conservation Centre, dormitory style accommodation (basic conditions, sleeping bag and mat needed). Food will be provided with catering service.

Location: The project will take place in Lampung, on the southern tip of the island of Sumatra.

Terminal: Tanjung Karang or Raden Intan II, Lampung

Age range: 18 and over

Extra fee: 290 Euro

The extra fee is intended to support the hosting organization who does not have sufficient funds. It is due upon arrival on the project.

                                                                                                         

 

 

Encourage children to learn English and improve educational facilities on Bali Island
Jembrana, Bali Island          March 12 - March 26, 2016

Volunteer project: Jembrana is one of the regencies in Bali Island. It is located in the western part of the island. Jembarana can be reached in 3 hours by car or by bus from Denpasar. Unlike the capital city of Denpasar, Jembrana is a peaceful and quiet place. There are a lot of rice field stretches along the regency. Moreover, the local community is very open and warm to visitors.

This year, we organize an international volunteer project to support a rural school in the western part of the island. The school provides basic compulsory education in math, languages, social studies, science, art and music. School hours are from 7 am to 1 pm, Monday to Saturday. After school, the students are encouraged to get involved in extracurricular activities such as sport, art, scouting, computers and traditional dance.

The volunteers will teach the students basic English and introduce some English kids songs. The volunteers will also do simple renovations in the school, such as making bookshelves for the library and painting classrooms. They will be also involved in cultural exchange activities and playing with the kids.


Look at the kids!                                                        Donation recipients

Study theme: The volunteers will be introduced to the Indonesian culture and customs in general, with a special focus on the local culture particularities. Some cultural visits are also foreseen.

Leisure time: During the free time, the volunteers will have the chance to visit diverse tourist attractions in Bali, which are popular all over the world. Volunteers may visit beaches, handicraft making centres, or traditional markets.

Language: English

Accommodation: The volunteers will be accommodated in Indonesian host families (basic conditions, sleeping bag and mat needed).

Location: The project will take place in the rural area of Jembrana Regency, in the western part of Bali Island.

Bali Island is a densely populated island, with more than 3 million inhabitants all together. The population is almost entirely Indonesian; 95% are of Balinese Hindu descent and could be described as ethnic Balinese. Bali is also a tiny, extremely fertile and dramatically mountainous island which measures 140 km by 80 km. The tourism boom, which started in 1970s, has brought many changes and has helped pay for improvements in roads, telecommunications, education and health care. Although tourism has had some marked effects, Bali’s unique culture and custom has proved remarkably defined.

Terminal: Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS), Denpasar, Bali

Age range: 18 and over

Extra fee: 210 Euro

The extra fee is intended to support the hosting organization who does not have sufficient funds. It is due upon arrival on the project.
