  • Description


    Hello everyone!

    I am Dayat, I was born in Bali and I moved to Lombok at a very young age with my large family. Growing up, I have been living between Bali, Lombok and the Gili Islands.

    Seven years ago I founded my sustainable tourism company with the help of Hannah.

    When Covid hit we lost nearly everything: we were a team of 10 wonderful independent drivers and guides. We launched an English club in our village, which we fund by donating a portion of our income from the trips: our goal is to give local children the opportunity to learn English in a fun and relaxed environment. We are now trying to bring back the company to how it used to be and to improve our English speaking club project in the local village.

    This is back and growing fast. I am now surrounded by an amazing team from the Muslim and Hindu communities in Central Lombok : you will meet Sani, Rina, Adi, Rinaldi, Carolina, Nyoman, Memek, Ummi, Wayan, and many more wonderful people.

    Right now we are looking for a web developer to help us with our website, and someone with teaching experience who can help our English teachers to improve.

    We need someone who could help us with the fact that we are growing fast : accommodation management, new ideas for tours, storytelling… Any knowledge will be useful for us.

    Also, our team is looking for volunteers who are comfortable around kids from all ages and can speak English (your english doesn't have to be fluent), so that they can help teach and practice in the English club and meet our wonderful students!

    Lastly, it would be amazing to be surrounded by workawayers who deeply care about sustainable tourism and the environment, in order to share their knowledge with locals and help the community understand the gravity of the plastic situation.

    We really believe in our project and we will be happy to involve you in this amazing life experience!

    Being a tourism company, we love to offer unique excursions to our volunteers: once a week you will be able to experience our off-the-beaten-track trips and discover the beautiful island of Lombok.

    Do not hesitate to contact us and, if you want to find out more about our company and our tours.

  • Help


    We ask for 1-2 hours a day of volunteering, that includes one or more of the following tasks:

    English teaching: you don’t have to be a certified teacher, simply someone who is confident in having to speak to a group of 20 kids and knows the basics of the English language;
    We also need somebody who could improve our English teacher’s skills.

    Photography and videography: we need somebody who is traveling with his own equipment, it would be amazing to have drone shots and create promotional content for our tourism company and for our social projects;

    Copywriting: our website and social media accounts need to be updated and for that, we are looking for a person with writing skills;

    Social media content creation: short form content, reels, Instagram stories and posts;

    Admin and communication skills to help us with our emails and collaborations;

    Web design and development: if you know how to use Wordpress, then we need you as well.

    We are working on a hostel creation (freshly open) in the village, and want to start a few homestays, that is why we also appreciate some renovation skills.

    We are not necessarily looking for professionals, our goal is to develop our visibility online, improve our content, boost our English club and make a positive impact in our local village and its environment. So, if you are a passionate person and you are driven by what you do, drop us a message. We are sure that you can help us inspire our wonderful community!
