We are a foundation for community wellness, and empowerment through education.
The foundation offers free language classes to Senior high school students from across Bali and newspaper employees. The foundation also has social programs that support village education on health, and environmentalism teaching waste management and recycling practises.
The foundation is part of a multi media company that publishes the Bali’s oldest newspaper, an online newspaper, and produces TV.
Currently seeking volunteers for various projects from multi media to teaching English and are flexible with placing you based on preferences and skills.
Help with Computers/ Internet
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.
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.
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.
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.
