    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This workaway offers you the opportunity to experience an authentic Bali not seen by most tourists. Learn about Balinese culture through local village interactions, or live like a local in Denpasar, Bali’s biggest city, and experience how a large media company operates. You will be embraced by the community in a true Balinese fashion and make local friends to show you around.

  • Help


    This is a truly unique volunteer experience. The newspaper and the foundation have different opportunities available for an array of skills. Please read the following options and include which (or all!) you are interested in when messaging us:

    1. Media Related Projects - help to create media projects with newspaper and TV. See behind the scenes of the first Bali newspaper and help with online platforms, including their tourism programs. Graphic design, web design, videography and a general understanding of tech/ computers would be helpful for these projects.

    2. Teaching English - we have many opportunities to help local Balinese people with their English skills. We will need help at the newspaper teaching staff English and grammar, as well as going to neighbouring villages to help children and youth learn English.

  • Languages spoken

    English: Fluent
    Indonesian: Fluent

  • Accommodation


    Depending on the project there are 2 locations. There is an Ashram in Tabanan or an Ashram in Denpasar (a short walk from the newspaper office.) There will be staff at both Ashrams to help with any needs (although English spoken is limited). Accommodation is semi private, rooms might be shared with 2- 4 people depending on the amount of volunteers at the time.

    3 meals a day are included during your stay.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Each region of Bali has much to offer with local tourism, make friends with locals who will be happy to share their nearby sites including waterfalls, and temples. Beaches and more touristy areas of Bali are only a short scooter ride from Denpasar (30-40 mins). The entire island is only a few hour across in any direction so can be explored in the afternoons after work or on days off.
