My name is Wisnu. I live in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. I have my own business with my friends, we created an environmental consultant. We help our clients to do an environmental impact assessment for their projects. By making a right arrangement for the projects, we contribute to create a sustainable development.
Besides doing business, I am also an English teacher at a middle school. It's a small school in a village with limited financial support. Most of the students come from a poor family. Even though there are many obstacles, the students are always excited to learn, especially English. In order to give a real and meaningful learning, I asked my friends from other countries to teach English when they were in Yogyakarta. I have done it with friends from the Netherlands, India, USA, UK, Australia, and Spain. As the result, the students became more confident to speak English meanwhile they were so shy and afraid before meet a foreigner.
I have been teaching at the school for the last one year and I want to keep teaching. I want to boost my students' energy to enrich their insight with global minded perspective by presenting them foreigner from many countries. I want to them not only learning English, but also learning about the culture from various countries.
Due to I can't make sure the visit of my friends from other countries, I need such kind of volunteer to teach my students and give a cross culture.
The travellers can feel different culture from my village which has a great local wisdom. They can learn from my students who come from a poor family, how hard they earn an education. My village is a place where the Javanese values are the most important things. The travellers can learn about the local culture. They also can see beautiful views, wide rice fields, waterfall, beaches, lake, pine forests, and many more.
I need a volunteer to teach English and/or other languages. It doesn't have to be a real teacher. I just need a person who can share about the culture and anything from the country. It also doesn't mean teaching in a strict class. It's just like a club to learn English and/or other languages and cross culture.
English, Bahasa Indonesia
The travellers can stay at my home. We have a proper and comfortable room which would be their private room. We also will provide free meals, refreshment, motorcycle, anything the travellers need to run the activities well. The foods in my village are suitable for any foreigners. We have a delicious local dishes. I'm sure that it will be fit for the travellers' taste.
I'll give foods for the volunteer or travelers freely. The foods in my area are easy to be tasted and accepted by the new people, even form different country. We have various local dishes with many flavor. They are salty, sweet, savory, and so on. I have friends from some countries and they were okay with our foods. There's no any problems after they eat our foods.
I can take the travellers to sightseeing. We can explore the nature because we have many great panorama. We also can make local dishes, hand crafts, batik, and many more. I have motorcycle that the travellers can ride. The travellers also can ride the motorbike with me. We can go surrounding to see the local people with various background.
