    Hello :) we run a school and a variety of community engagement activities in Belopa Luwu, Sulawesi, Indonesia.

    The programs are mentioned below:

    1. Kindergarten learning and playing activities
    2. English Course for Kids in Primary School and Students of High School (But mostly for Kids)
    2. Literacy Motivation collaborate with many different schools / institutions
    3. Environmental Care Campaign
    4. Charity Program (Building Houses for Poor People, Healthcare Access/Basic Needs, Helping the Refugees after Natural Disasters, etc.)
    5. Women Empowerment Project
    6. Parenting Motivation
    7. 2-3 days teaching the children on the mountain of remote areas.

    We need volunteers to help teach English and other inspirational activities to our 40 kindergarten students. We also ask for your assistance teaching a group of registered people from the local community (around 30 are registered) who attend the English Classes that we run 4 days per week. This group includes: Children, Teenagers, High School Students, Adult English Class and a Seaman Conversation Class. We sometimes attend some classes in other school to give an education motivation to the students.

    Depending on your skills and preferences, we ask that you to assist/lead a selection of these classes. Also, if you have a particular expertise (teacher, social work, psychologist, environmentalist, etc.) then we would love to learn from you. We can create together lesson plans based topics on topics of which you are knowledgeable and if you are willing to, we would love for you to lead or assist a public discussion group with adult community members and or with student community.

    In addition to teaching we also run some charity programs, which aim to help those within the local community who are living in poverty, especially disadvantaged children and elderly people. We help these disadvantaged members of the community to access health care and to fulfill their primary needs, such as building homes, obtaining food, among other things. Together we'll bring.

    Volunteers will be completely immersed in our local culture and will therefore learn a great deal about the social-culture of the area (a small village/town). You will be living alongside and interacting with the local adults and children in the village and will have opportunities to take part in activities, such as playing sports with the local people or enjoying climbing mango or rambutan trees.

    On the weekend, we will spend our time visiting nearby spots of natural importance/beauty and attending local cultural events like traditional wedding ceremonies, going to the sea surround Belopa, to the river, hiking, or visiting other towns such as the infamous Toraja, Latimojong, and Bastem where you can further explore the culture and natural environment.

    We provide our volunteers with meals 3 times a day, which we can adapt depending on your preference (and its availability), including: breakfast (cakes, egg, bread, fruits, tea or coffee), lunch (local food: rice, vegetable, fish/chicken, tofu/tempe/egg), and dinner (gado-gado, fruit, rice or other vegetables). We are very happy if we can cook and prepare the meals together in order to create meals that everybody enjoys, and eat together as a family. For your information as a vegetarian; it's perfect, because it's easy to find vegetables since we have our own garden which also possible to give hands in planting the vegetable together. The kitchen located outside of the building, open 24 hours to enjoy cooking together.

    It's so important to note that we ask you are open minded and respectful of our local culture. We have some important local values, and especially ask that you respect and adapt to our dress culture. So we therefore ask that you please don't wear tank tops and shorts. On that note, we will be so thankful for your understanding of our ways of life here. We do hope that you are an open-minded person so that we can work together no matter which background you are from, and can easily understand each other as human beings.

    A further note is that we would prefer female workawayers, but are open to hosting men and/or a family as well. We are also open to having a discussion about something you like or dislike in order to avoid any misunderstandings between us.

    We particularly hope that we can find a volunteer with a psychology and/or woman social activist background who would feel capable and comfortable to help create and be a speaker for the parenting and education seminar.

    One final note is that our home/school in Belopa (where you will be based) is quite far from the province. It takes around 8 hours to reach Belopa from Makassar Ujung Pandang International airport by Bus. The bus is very modern and comfortable, we will be there to meet you when you arrive in Belopa. We hope this information will be useful for consideration.

    Fyi. We launched one Teaching program for The Primary Class in Remote school on the mountain of Bastem & Latimojong Luwu. From Belopa (Our School), we need about 4-6 hours to reach that place by Jeep. Need to inform that the road to go there is so bumpy and challenging. We teach the students for a short time around 2-3 days staying.

    If you need any other information, we will be more than happy to provide you with further details, so please feel free to contact us.

    Herein our daily regular programs in the school for your references, you can choose which activity you are happy to do:

    1. From Monday 'till Thursday:
