I am Sulis! I live in Sukorejo distric, Kendal Regency, Central Java. I live in a village which is 2 hours away from Semarang or 3 hours away from Jogjakarta. I work for the government as a forestry agent on Temanggung. My jobs description is working with farmers and learning to help save our earth by planting trees, keeping the soil from erosion and rubbish management. Where I works is a beautiful nature, there are many hills, we have one mountain with a jungle, sometimes if I’ve free times I love to go hiking that mountain to enjoy the sunrise.
In my office, I run english class for children with my friend, Mr. Gandhi, it is free and I would love to have your help to teach them. You could help them to practice speak English. Also you could give motivation to them about the importance of going to school, because here most childern just graduated until junior high school, even many graduated from elementary school.
If you are willing to come here, you could stay in a guest house at my office. Besides teacing English, I will invite you to plant a tree for the world as we know that trees and forest are the lungs of the world, during the trip we will see coffe plantation, hills and may be we have any times we can visit waterfalls. And then I will invite you to visit farmer groups to interact with them, you can see about their culture and at certain times we may be able to see traditional culture like pupet show / wayang, traditional dance and many kinds of javanes culture.
