Medan is a cool city to check out authentic local culture in Indonesia. There is almost no tourist here. Kualanamu airport KNO is the main entry point to Sumatra, sixth largest island in the world with interesting places such as Bukit Lawang (Orang Utan), Lake Toba (the world largest volcanic lake), Nias (surfing) and more. Great to explore Sumatra first, before going on to Jakarta, Java, Bali, Lombok, Raja Ampat and more.
We are hoping to find volunteers from all over the world to do activities and teach all sort of skills to our kids. We are a local family with young boys in Medan. We can provide accommodation, meal, transport and more.
NOTES: Due to coronavirus situation around the world, we are currently unable to host. However, we are looking for online activities (ie. Zoom) for our boys to learn art, drawing, music, languages (Chinese, English, etc) and more. Feel free to message us, we can work something out.

Help around the house
Usually Medan is the entry point to explore Bali and the rest of Indonesia. Not many tourists and expats, so not much information available online. We have loads of great local information and tips, and can help you to plan the best for your trips around here. There are Lake Toba (the biggest Volcanic lake in the world), Bukit Lawang (Orang Utan), Nias (top surfing location) and more.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are looking for volunteers with any kind of skills (swimming, music, art, sport, yoga, fitness, meditation and so on) to teach our boys.
The boys go to school in the morning, volunteers can plan afternoon activities for the boys. So the boys will have proper one or two hours time with volunteers for reading, drawing, playing, cooking, gardening and others.
Please send us your proposals and indicate your skills.
