Meeting and getting to know all the other volunteers from over the world and getting to teach the grade 5s was my favorite moment. The impact my volunteering trip had on me was meeting the locals in Bali and learning about their culture and customs. Everyone is extremely welcoming and open to getting to know each other.

Tour Program

Bali is well known for its astonishing beauty and greenery. Unfortunately, due to rapid development and the rise in tourism, the local surroundings of Bali have experienced many negative consequences. Plastic water bottles and plastic food wrappers are of great concern and you will often see people simply throwing these on the ground, as food in Bali was traditionally wrapped in biodegradable banana leaves. The relationship between humans and the environment is an important part of the Balinese culture and the aim of this project is to instil environmental education in children at a young age, imparting your message in a fun and dynamic manner. The emphasis is on “hands-on” techniques – getting the children out and about in nature and working together. Participants spend two hours each morning planning their campaign and go to schools in the Ubud area in the afternoon.

Our environmental education program focuses on primary schools in Bali. Whilst education is the starting point, we encourage students to work together and do their part, emphasizing that every little effort counts.

The relationship between humans and the environment is an intrinsic part of the Balinese culture. The Balinese are known to respect and treat their environment well long before it became fashionable in the West. One example of this is the Tumpek Uduh day, a ceremony conducted across Bali for large trees, especially fruit bearers and the coconut palm. 

This is done in order to:

  • Show gratitude to the trees for their usefulness to humans and the environment.
  • Recognize their importance to the livelihood of the Balinese.
  • Pray for continuance in the central role they play in providing a balance between both humans and their environment.
