What is this program about?

One of the ways to get to know a country is to volunteer, but not just any volunteer, but a different volunteer experience; where you can meet, live and feel the true essence of that place and its people. You can do it by volunteering in Bali, on this magnificent Indonesian island.

Get to know this wonderful country for yourself while you dedicate your time to a social cause as important as this one.

We work in several nurseries in Ubud and the surrounding towns, we will assign you according to needs and capacity. In addition, we have our own nursery for children from 4 to 5 years old, which they can attend free of charge. The children are at the beginning of their school career and the opportunity to start learning English from such an early age will be remarkable for them in the future.

As in day care centers around the world, teaching is informal, as children will want to play with you more than what you “teach” them. However, just by getting them excited about coming to school by giving them a few basic English phrases, such as simple greetings, you may have sown the seeds of a lifelong learning habit.

All the children will be delighted to see you, they are very welcoming, partly due to the natural and genuine friendliness of the Balinese.

How is the day to day and what will I do as a volunteer?
