Conservación & Medio Ambiente in Sri Lanka

Volunteer in Bali and learn about its people and its actual culture away from the touristic resorts. Enjoy this culturally fascinating location, while you volunteer and teach children and other people in need.

 

Although Bali is part of Indonesia, it is commonly thought that it is a separate country. Its people show a wonderful mix of different Pacific Asian cultures. Its most special features are its food, strongly influenced by Hindu traditions, and Balinese dance, a delight to be experienced in this location.

 

Volunteering allows you to get some first-hand insight into the real culture that lies beyond the wealth of touristic spots like hotels or casinos. As part of Connecting Worlds, we want volunteers and interns to bring the best out of themselves while helping locals in different projects that are designed to be sustainable and responsible towards the people and the environment.

What’s included in our fair-cost policy?

 

All our programs include a fixed price Registration Fee of US$249 and a Program Fee that varies according to the duration of the program and the services included.

 

The Registration Fee covers the costs of all that Connecting Worlds has to do in order to organise the experience in an efficient manner and offer each participant a quality program. These costs include marketing, staff salaries, travel costs of staff who visit and inspect each of the programs on offer and Connecting Worlds’ solidarity fund among others. We need this fee just to sustain the organization.

 

The Program Fee is the total cost of everything related to the services that the volunteer will be able to take advantage of upon arrival to the destination of their choice. For example, accommodation, meals, transfers, the donation made to the volunteer project, welcome orientation and constant 24/7 support. The payment for this fee goes directly to the country in which the volunteer will be stationed, directly benefiting the local community. It’s a fee which helps organisations that work in the country associated with the program at hand to move forwards with their projects and generate work opportunities for the local community.

 

Thanks to our fair-cost policy, the volunteer benefits from not having to pay high fees and our local partners benefit from being able to invest in their projects and keep things moving forwards. Connecting Worlds also benefits from keeping the costs of its programs as low as possible because we get the opportunity to support local communities and make a difference in our own small but important way.

 

Environmental Education

The purpose of this project is to help Balinese people, especially children, understand the importance of environmental education, as well as teaching them English. After the rise in tourism, there has been an increase in the use of plastic water bottles and containers, and they are disposed freely throughout Bali, as people were used to wrapping food with banana leaves. Many locals are in the need of volunteers full of goodwill who are ready to get hands-on experience in recycling and working with children out in the nature. Some activities may include teaching children how recycling works, or cleaning rivers and schools. However, volunteers are encouraged to bring and develop their own ideas, campaigns and activities. 

 

If they choose not to develop a campaign, they will mainly focus on teaching English. They should only keep in mind that many schools may not have the necessary resources to carry out specific campaigns, so volunteers will be required to bring any specialized materials if needed.
