  • Description


    We are an organization trying to develop a village for eco tourism and an english school in our village.
    We have two activities, one focusing on bringing tourists to visit our village and get to know a little bit about the local culture, the other one focusing on providing a good education in English to people in Lombok.
    The village of Bonjeruk is located in the Kecamatan of Jonggat, Kabupaten Lombok Tenggah ( Central Lombok ).
    Bonjeruk is located in a ideal area, nearby several famous touristic places like Taman Narmada, and the traditional weaving center of Sukerare, and it can be reach from the International Airport of Lombok in approximatively only 25 minutes. Now the area of Bonjeruk is split in 3 hamlets being Ubung, Bunkate and Pengenjek. Dwellers of Bonjeruk amount to a total of about 7000 souls and the majority of them are farmer and breeders.

    The name of Bonjeruk originate from the word "Bun/Buwun" meaning well, followed by the orange tree that never stop giving fruits. There is about 13 Bun/well in Bonjeruk that have still been used until today by the community for taking showers, cleaning and as a source of drinking water.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    It is a great opportunity for volunteers to experience village life in Lombok, you will be surrounded by rice fields, gardens, you can learn about coffee making process, bamboo weaving, and many other things with the locals.
    We also can introduce you to the Gamelan, special group of instrument in Indonesia. Living in a village will be also the perfect place if you want to learn Indonesian or our local language : Sasak.

  • Help


    We want volunteers to help us to teach English, to assist in the school or to lead the classroom. Besides that, we would like to organize conversational classes with the people in our team, they all have a good understanding of English, but many of them still need help and practice to be able to express themselves in English.
    We might also need your help in gardening, helping with computer and marketing, and why not teach the locals if you have any skills in craftsmanship.
