About the project

This project was established in 2007 as an environmental learning and conservation project. In recognition that a large number of families outside of Bali’s apparently prosperous, tourism-driven economy live in poverty, the second component has been introduced in 2011, and our activities were expanded to provide support to unemployed girls and young women through training and skills development. Given the importance of the tourism sector in Bali, their training mainly focused on hospitality, but also on arts (weaving), health and hygiene classes and the development of basic business skills. The training is provided free of charge for the women. 

As a volunteer you will work with women who are motivated to learn and envision a brighter future for themselves, their families and their island. 

Social culture visa information

To work as a volunteer in Indonesia, you will need a social culture visa. This visa is issued to applicants who are going to Indonesia for a social/cultural visit, for example, visiting relatives or friends who live in Indonesia; visiting social organizations with the same type of activities; for exchange visits between educational institutions, carrying out research, and attending training program in Indonesia. Social-culture visa holders are not allowed to receive any salary from the visit they do. You have to apply before your arrival in Bali at the Indonesian embassy in your home country, to be able to volunteer or do an internship legally; you do need the Social-Culture Visa. Any other visa type is not sufficient. 

Time of application: 2-3 weeks. The visa application process takes some time and due to other reasons (Indonesian holidays or strike of post employees for example) the process can be delayed. Therefore, we recommend starting the application process the latest around 4 weeks prior your arrival in Indonesia.

Validity: 60 days after arrival

Extension: can be extended up to 4 times every 30 days

Costs: 45 Euro

Cost of extension in Bali: starting from 800.000-1.050.000 IDR via private agency, 750.000 IDR non-agency assistance extension

This guideline helps you through the visa application. However, we highly suggest you to re-check the information and visit the Indonesian Embassy’s website of your capital or call them directly.

Average Living expenses in Bali

Indonesia is considered to be really cheap to live in. This is something you will find out quickly after your arrival in Bali. Here you will see with which additional costs you have to plan during your time in Bali.

Food: The amount of money you will spend on food depends on your eating habits. If you eat at a local warung you will spend around 2€/2.20US$ for a proper meal with drink. But if you prefer to eat western food you will spend a lot more (at least 5€/5.35US$ but probably even more).

Laundry: In our accommodation you won’t have laundry facilities. So you have to bring your laundry to a laundry service somewhere around your living area. Average laundry costs are around 0.50-1€/$ for one kilogram of laundry.

Phone Credit:
 In all our accommodations you will find wifi. Therefore 2GB mobile data plus some credit for calling your friends should be enough per month. This will cost you around 5€/5.25$.

Scooter Rental + Petrol: Renting a scooter will cost around 42€/45$ per month. Petrol is quite cheap in Indonesia and 1 litre will be around  0.50€/$. In practice this means, that you won't need more than 4 €/$ per week for petrol unless you intend to to a bike trip around the island.

Trips: How much money you want to spend for trips to explore Bali is eventually up to you. You can minimize expenses if you spend a bit more time organizing as much as you can by yourself instead of using a travel agent or trip packages. 

Typical day

You will volunteer in the center from Monday to Friday from 8.30 am to 5 pm. You will be briefed concerning your skills and educational background during your application process. Based on that information the center will describe your volunteer plan. The tasks are usually:
  • supporting, developing, and teaching students, staff and volunteers in a range of environmental best practice programs
  • secure funding and maintain sponsorship relations for the program
  • working side-by-side with the manager on sight (for women's skills education)
  • teaching English language classes for foundation staff's and students (adults)
  • teaching of health programs
  • updating and assessing student education curriculum
  • developing school and student management systems

Many dive centers offer courses for non-divers or snorkelers as well. They usually suggest different itineraries for everyone's needs. Let yourself be enchanted by Bali's underwater world. 

Snorkeling
If you don't have a PADI license, you can simply go snorkeling at reefs close to Bali's shore. You may find manta rays, colorful and intact coral reefs or even small ship wrecks. Usually, you only need to pay 1 or 2 Euros to rent snorkeling equipment and off you go.
