    Hi everyone!!!

    My name is Pakde, I'm the major of Balantang, a small and lovely village in south Sulawesi. We are a humble community that lives from fishing and sailing. Our lives are based in nature.

    My village is not a turistic destination so it is not easy for our people to practice their English. Currently I'm developing an English project so that my people can learn basic English.

    When you come here you will discover the real Indonesia, you will live with a family in a traditional wooden house, you will be in contact with locals, you can learn the ancient techniques of Indonesian fishermen, you can farm with us too!

    If you like sports we can teach you rowing and we can do trekking through the mountains surrounding Malili river.

    We need your help for teaching children and teenagers basic English 4 hours a day. You can teach either in the city hall or in the mosque :)

    Here you will see a Japanese ship that wrecked in Malili river in 1944. You may also have the opportunity of comming to a Bugis wedding and participate in Islamic festivities.

    If you are looking for a once in life experience, life as a Indonesian and make the difference then definitely you must come to Balatang!!!
