About the local hosting organization
Bali Island is popular as the island of gods and very famous with culture and nature attraction. Dejavato decides to conduct the project in the west part of Bali Island and it can be reached for 3 hours by car or bus from Denpasar. It is not like in the east part of Bali island that put tourism industry as the main income, but it has more rice farm and plantation also the biggest fish commodity in Bali island that produce various kind of fishes that also exported to other countries. It has a busy seaport in Gilimanuk as a gateway that connecting Bali and Java island through Bali sea. Since most of the area is mountainous and it consists of primary monsoon forest, it has west Bali national park with the total area of 19.000 ha as the important place for conserving rare and endangered animals like birds, cattle as well as rare plants.
In collaborating with Educational Department Affairs, Dejavato has conducted several workcamp projects at local schools since 2010 as main activity at school from 7 am until 1 pm, Monday to Saturday. We accommodate the need from local students to have opportunity to interact with foreigners and increasing communication ability among students and teachers.
