What is this program about?

In this program, you will be participating in brick laying, carpentry, painting, tile laying, and landscaping/gardening. A local coordinator will provide orientation and training together with local families.

By participating in this social project, you will make a difference in the local community by helping to improve their living conditions. You will be in a relaxed artistic environment where you are in charge of renovating, creating drawings and paintings in various kindergartens and primary schools around Ubud. This activity is fun and will help develop your creativity during the process.

It is often difficult for participants to pack too much due to luggage weight limitations, but remember that Bali has some well-developed shopping malls where you can buy supplies once you have arrived in the country. This is our recommendation to contribute to the country and the Bali community.

Please note that the program is intended to support comlocal drives and therefore tasks can change based on what is most needed/useful.
