Luwu is one of regency in South Sulawesi and Belopa is capital of Luwu. We have riches history, culture and nature (mountain, waterfall, sea) and a lot of kind of traditional food.
I'm a Photographer, so i can take a lot of good picture for volunteers, especially for our traditional dress. but the volunteers have to pay to wearing traditional dress because i rent in wedding organizer, don't worry because it's cheap.
I'm a Videomaker and Youtuber,, so i can make and upload the video from our music project and other fun daily activity (football and futsal playing, running, hiking, swimming, cooking, eating, playing, video reaction, etc) to Youtube and the volunteers can be share to any other families and friends.
In Luwu we have a book about our mhytologi called Sureq Galigo. is the longest mhytologi on the world. more than Mahabrata and Ramayana from India. I can explain to you the simple story because now only available in Bahasa Indonesia and Ancient Buginese language.
Luwu is 4 hours from Toraja. Is the the second most beautiful place in Indonesia after Bali because the have a lot of unique nature and culture (especially for funeral). And very different culture with us, because we are Moslem's here in Luwu and they are Christian and local religion called "Aluk To Dolo".
We need volunteers for helping us to make our folk song or folk music from other country. We need volunteers who play instrument, especially for unique instrument from their country. I have small recording studio in my home.
To reach us, you can take a flight to Sultan Hasanuddin Airport (Makassar). From Makassar Airport you have to take a bus ( Daya bus station ) to Belopa, then the bus will drop you off in Belopa. It takes 6-8 hours to Belopa, then in Belopa we will pick you up to our simple house.
Or you take a flight from Sultan Hasanuddin Airport (Makassar) to I La galigo AIrport (Bua) and then we will pick you up by car to Belopa (our town).

There are one room, inside of our house with a mattress, pillows, and sheets of each room. The washroom is really the local style (where you take a small scoop dipped into a large tub or container of cold water and pour the water over yourself), and squat the toilet. And i have WiFi signal here in my house.
The home stay is a simple room but is very comfortable for volunteers. Volunteers are responsible for their own food, there is a supermarket nearby and a traditional market. We can show volunteers around and give tips about the best traditional Indonesian food, we can also cook together sharing recipes and different traditional food.
