About the local hosting organizationTHE GREEN LION
About the volunteer workOur Bali experience project/road trip is one of our most popular programs and it consists of three action-packed weeks of adventure and experiences that will immerse you deeply into Balinese culture. Each week has a different theme and its own charm that will help you get the most out of your time in Bali. You will start and finish your holiday at our center in Ubud enjoying the town, wandering around the markets, trekking in the stunning area with a relaxing Balinese massage to ease tired muscles, indulging in the best Bali offers through cultural visits, meeting locals and giving back to the community by helping out in some of our programs. On your second week during the project phase you will have the opportunity to either work at the local kindergarten, on the environmental project, or at the medical project.
Local accommodationAbout the Accommodation The Balinese place great importance on family and our houses are located amongst Balinese compounds, where you will get the chance to interact with local families and practice your newfound language skills. You can expect to share a room (dormitory style) on single gender basis. The bathroom is shared and western toilets are available. Food Arrangements The meals are provided in buffet style at the canteen. Indonesian food is tasty and diverse and you can expect to experience a myriad of flavors and meals during their stay. Typical dishes included mie goreng (fried noodles and vegetables), nasi goreng (fried rice and vegetables) or gado gado (mixed vegetables with a satay sauce). For those who do not eat meat, Indonesian cooking uses a lot of tofu and tempeh (soybeans), we also provide for some of western dishes. Breakfasts are varied and include pancakes, fresh fruit, toast etc. Tea, coffee and purified water is available at the house. We do not recommend that you drink the tap water.
About the project locationYou will be accommodated in one of our houses in the village of Penestanan Kaja. Located on the outskirts of Ubud, village life is quintessentially local here and you will get a good chance to see typical Balinese life roosters crowing and all!
