  • Description


    My name is Tarmizi. I live in Lombok Island, West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. I really enjoy being with the kids and people in the village. Sometimes I bring some foreigners to come with. I need to build a friendship between them and the locals. But please don't be scare when people and kids in village will act like seeing alien or celebrity to the foreigners, keep coming close to take picture, invite them to their house and many other. Some foreigners feel weird but actually the locals need them to build a friendship. In this case, I will put myself to connect the locals and foreigners. It is the main reason why I need to join workaway. I hope cross culture understanding will works soon.

    * The activities for volunteers:
    1. Help me to be with the kids to introduce basic
    2. Sharing something about culture, education &
    environment with us.

    * If you come as a Workawayer, just take your time
    to read the regulations below:
    1. If you are planning to come as volunteer you
    need the correct visa. Please contact the
    embassy in your home country.
    2. Maximum 3 hours working time per day.

    Best regards
