WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU BOOK YOUR PLACEMENT?
Once you have applied for a placement, we'll contact you and send you our Welcome
Pack. You'll also receive Log-on details and password for our Volunteer Extranet
where you'll have access to all the documentation and information which we've put
together to facilitate preparations for your adventure! Your Project Co-ordinator
for your country will liaise with you throughout the arrangements process, as well
as while you're on your placement and on your return home.
The documents you'll have access to also include a Country Factfile, Safety Guide
and any manuals that may assist you on your particular programme (e.g. Teaching
Guide, Sports Manuals, Enrichment Suggestions for Animal Care, etc.). We do all
we can to make your stay one that you'll never forget. This is a truly awesome,
elegant and beautiful country.
As with all our destinations, the culture and heritage is different to what you're
used to ... which, although one of the most exciting aspects of travelling, should
be borne in mind. Self-reliance and independence are highly appreciated in all
our destinations and will help you to make the most of this wonderful opportunity!
On Arrival, your Introduction to the Country:
When you arrive you
will be welcomed by a member of the team who will take you to your accommodation
and introduce you to everyone.
CLIMATE, CULTURE AND COSTUME:
You can expect pleasant day temperatures between 20 to 33 degrees Celsius or 68
to 93 degrees Fahrenheit year-round. From December to March, the West monsoon can
bring heavy showers and high humidity, but usually days are sunny and the rains
start during the night and pass quickly. From June to September the humidity is
low, and it can be quite cool in the evenings. During this time of the year, you'll
have hardly any rain in the coastal areas. That said, Ubud is in the mountains and
has a unique microclimate where you can expect cloudy skies and showers throughout
the year. Sometimes you’ll even need a sweater or light jacket after the sun sets!
Bali is a Hindu Island, Balinese Culture and Balinese Traditional are still charming
and beautiful. Traditional Balinese clothing worn by women covers their shoulders
and knees. Especially, when they go to the temple and when they have a Ceremony
REQUIREMENTS AND NOTES:
Indonesia is still a developing country thus the living standard falls short of
what we are used to in the West. The Balinese culture and heritage is totally different
to Western cultures. However, the people are very friendly and will
help you all they can, and, of course, you will be well looked after during your
Our projects in Bali are worthwhile and lots of fun, and you're sure to have a wonderful
time during your stay - your adventure has begun :-)
