Construction and Renovation in Bali

This project supports small village communities in and around Ubud
Overview icon

Overview

In this program, you would be participating in laying bricks, doing carpentry, painting, laying tiles and landscaping/gardening. A local coordinator will provide guidance and training alongside local families.

Through participating in this social project, you will make a difference to the local community by helping in improving their living conditions. You would be in an artistic and relaxed environment where you are in charge of renovating and creating drawings and paintings in several kindergartens and primary schools around Ubud. This activity is fun and it would support your creativity during the process.

For all programs, it is imperative to remember that any money raised to help your project when you arrive in Bali will be very well received. Often it is hard for the participants to take too many supplies due to limitations on baggage weight but remember that Bali has some very developed shopping centers where supplies can be bought once you have arrived in the country. This is our recommended and preferred way to contribute to the program. Not only does it mean you do not have to cart the supplies on the plane with you, it means any money you spend will be invested back into the Bali economy.

Keep in mind that the program aims to support the local communities and therefore can tasks can change depending on what is most necessary/helpful.

Objectives

  • It aims to build and renovate buildings that are essential for the growth and development of the local community.

Impact
