About us

As one of the first agencies of its kind based in Bali, started back in 2010 have we established and sustained a vast network of trust, support and friendship among non-profit organizations, educational institutions, companies and international volunteers and interns.

 

 

Our mission

 

We are committed in providing educational, social and cultural programs that encourage intercultural learning between local communities in Bali and both national and international visitors.

Why we are here

INTERNSHIP IN BALI

We understand how much of efforts there are to be able to land a reliable and quality internship abroad. Yes technology does exist to cater to every need’s, in the world where everything is one click away. Are you a hundred percent sure if the potential internship programs offered online are all reliable? Our existence is made for this exact mediation.

 

It is our main role to mediate international student’s needs to ensure your internship placement to its success and value. Being thousand kilometers away from your internship destination makes it challenging for you to naturally accept what the host company has to offer.

 

With our years of experience and solid network of reliable host company’s quality internship program, we assure your internship placement worth doing.

VOLUNTEERING IN BALI

Volunteering abroad or the so-called voluntourism has been both challenged and encouraged the past decade. Challenged as it is seen as a money-making machine for million dollars voluntour travel agencies around the world where social projects are made up to perpetuate poverty.

 

We are aware of how delicate it is to even bring up this topic as agencies that offer social projects that require international volunteer’s involvement. It has taken us years to build trustful and reliable connections of existing organizations all around Bali that are not made-up and legally.

 

We identify where supports are needed, where volunteers’ motivation, skills and background could favor the community development.

Our values

 

 

Local community support

 

Being part of Bali’s local community, we manage our business to operate for our community’s benefit. Not only do we support existing profit companies and nonprofit organizations, we constantly work together with local family businesses such as accommodations, scooter rentals or transport services.

Ethical support

 

We understand, that just because you are volunteering you are not necessarily doing something good. Having built up a long-term and personal relationships to our volunteer host organizations we have learned about their working processes and targets. Together with the host coordinators we find the best task description for the volunteers, that helps to develop the programs on the long run.

Sustainability

 

Our support goes beyond the placement of international people. We are very committed in carefully matching each volunteers or interns background with the open positions. We want to ensure, that the help offered has a sustainable effect for the programs.

Responsibility

 

We screen every volunteer and intern before the placement with regard to reliability and motivation to eventually match them with an open position in our local network. Furthermore, we are very committed to communicate appropriate values and behavior among our travelers to ensure the safety and protection of children, young adults and adults of our local host organizations (see our Child Protection Policy and Code of Conduct) and to promote environmental awareness.

Quality

 

We have several ways to ensure the quality of our programs:

  • - We only work with acknowledged and registered companies and organizations in Bali.

  • - We help to develop an individual internship contract.

  • - We monitor the placements regularly through our host supervisors and personal feedback during our get together meetings.
