    Description

    My name is Mr. Tony and I'm the founder of the Foundation. It mainly focuses on teaching English to local children, youths, and adults alike to make them able to work in many different industries. We try to create a bright future for impoverished Indonesian students and jobless youths.

    Our goal is to help jobless locals, mainly recent high school graduates who cannot afford university. I, myself, despite good grades and an unstoppable will to learn, could not afford to go to university. This is what motivated me to create BC.

    We started by teaching children outdoors in 2007 but have grown quite a bit since then. Today BC offers 3 different courses, one of which is the Private Boarding class where the students stay with us throughout their education. We have a small building with one classroom, a kitchen and sleeping area for the students in the Private Boarding class. Due to unfortunate circumstances we need to relocate and we are currently in the process of building a new school close to our current location, we are aiming to finish the main part of the building by April 2019.

    My dream is to have westerners teach English here so that the students can be exposed to different cultures, help us build, alongside babysitting and housekeeping. We are located in the beautiful mountains of central Lombok where many aren't exposed to the outside world. The most helpful volunteers we need are...

    1 - Builders and Construction. People with building experience help a great deal as labourers cost a lot of money. Helping build our school is valuable both for the current students, and the future of our foundation.

    2 - Teachers and Teaching Assistants. Speaking English with our students helps them develop at a much faster rate. By speaking and learning from you, they can move into better paying jobs as quickly as possible. Sometimes you will lead lessons and classes, but mostly you should support me.

    3 - Babysitting and Help at Home. My wife and family have a lot of work to do because I am always teaching and working. By you helping with our children (2 babies, 2 kids) or cleaning or cooking, we can ensure our time is spent supporting students who need us most.

    We have also been trying to find new trekking paths in the surrounding mountains and jungles since 2010. Recently we discovered a water fall that hasn't been open to tourism. We would like to open our region up to eco tourism. We would like to create simple paths to the spots we discover and leave everything as untouched as possible.

    So we would also need adventurers to help us find new paths and to promote our untouched brand of eco tourism.

    You will live with us at the villagers' house and be provided with your own bed. The bathroom is squatter style. You will also eat with us. You will gain a truly Indonesian experience as you will more than likely be the only traveler in the region. We will welcome you and treat you like family.

    We will take you trekking as normal cost to fund our foundation with us and show you beautiful sites. This area is full of rice fields, mountains and waterfalls. You will be one of few travelers you will have experienced this. We can also take you to meet other local families as like students' houses to different villages. Here you will be part of the community.

    We prefer at least a one week stay. In the past, we've had 50+ guests. One of which stayed for 6 months. We just created this account in hopes to bring in more volunteers.

    Please feel free to contact us at any time. But please know that Internet connection is sparse so it may take a while to respond.

    We hope to welcome you here!
