  • Seraya Village, Bali -  located about 2.5 hours by car from the Denpassar airport, is situated on the North Eastern side of Bali with incredible beaches, diving and a tranquil local Balinese atmosphere.   Due to it’s proximity to the famous holy mountain Agung (Bali’s highest mountain), there are some nice resorts in the region, but luckily the area still feels mostly un-touched by tourism.     

    With IVI, you’ll be working within the Seraya and surrounding coastline areas.   Villagers in these areas do not have access to free & quality healthcare and your presence here will be welcomed by the entire village who will be grateful for your services.

    Upon arrival you’ll be transferred to coastal region of Canggu which is approx 45 minutes from the airport where you’ll stay in a guest house for the first 2 nights for orientation before you’re transferred up to Seraya with your team.   

  • Our partners are an inspiring charity organisation which is deeply rooted in supporting the local community.  In the Nutrition & Public Health Outreach Program, you’ll be working closely within local schools and the local village, home to approx 190 families.  The health issues in this region stem from simple education such as mouth and body hygiene, but also include malnutrition, protein difficiency, anemia, diabetes and various NCD’s.  

  • In this project, you’ll be supported by a team of healthcare volunteers led by a qualified health practitioner in country.   Together you will devise a plan for the 2 week period conducting health checks in villages, educational seminars within schools, hospital & clinic work (for certain candidates only), physical education promotion, corporate health checks and related activities.   

    Traditionally the villagers in this area are farmers and mostly grow bananas, dragonfruit, mango and rice.   Unfortunately, many have switched from growing red and black rice which yields higher Nutrition to white rice which crops 4 times per year yielding more profit with less nutrition. 

    Why do we need you in Bali?

    • Approx 14.3% of the population in Bali live below the poverty line
    • Volunteering in this region creates employment opportunities for the local staff & helps invigorate the local economy.
    • Many villages lack education and even access to clean water and electricity.
    • Bali has been growing in environmental problems such as pollution and freshwater scarcity

    How can you help?
  • Establish healthy diet and lifestyle promotional materials for on-going use
  • Consult with local health authorities
  • Assist in the prescription of natural protocols (where possible)
  • Run physical education and exercise promotion programs
  • Help identify protein & iron deficiencies and provide prevention education
  • Help identify Diabetes & other Non Communicable Diseases 
  • Conduct individual and group health consultations

Dagelijkse activiteiten

A typical day of volunteer work on the for lasts approx 4-6 hours, with a break for lunch. The tasks you will help with depend greatly upon the season and the priority of needs at the time. Activities will vary depending upon your own knowledge, skills and ability. A typical day might look like:

  • As a volunteer, you'll provide free services & support to communities that do not have access to free healthcare
  • Provide health assessments such as weight, blood glucose and waste to hip ratio measurements within health clinics & villages in and surrounding Seraya village and Mount Agung.
  • Conduct educational talks on the dangers of sugar & how to prevent diabetes and other NCD's
  • Research the local culture and customs and investigate methods to invoke positive health changes in the community which align to cultural values
