  • Description


    Hi ! I am Zen and I am a teacher. I have an English Course in my village at small city. But it's not so far from town. (it's about 5 up to 10 minutes drive away by motorbike or car). We need volunteers from over the world who would love to help teaching English conversation for our students in my place. I live in a simple house with two sons and my mother. The first son ( Han ) graduated from Senior High School and he helps me in my project. The second son ( Roy ) is still in Senior High School. We really do hope to become the host family of volunteers for my project. We would improve my student's skills, expecially in English practice, exchange languages and culture etc. Therefore I, family and students are happy to welcome volunteers to my place in Kembang Village (DUKO Kembang) Bondowoso-East Java,Indonesia.

All guests of the volunteers who stay at home are easily to go out and back home, because there are many available of public transportation, like; Bus, Taxi, Pedicab(becak), docarts, Motorbike passangers (Ojek) and etc. I've been ready to take my volunteers up to go teaching place, or going to other place for buying something or other necessaries by car or motorcycle around my town.
