Community and Sustainability in Bali
How would you like to spend two weeks on a gorgeous tropical island? We will go snorkeling every day. There will be opportunity to restore a portion of damaged reef in the incredible "coral triangle" of Indonesia. We will visit temples, palaces, waterfalls and national parks. After climbing a live volcano, we will watch the sun rise over the Bali Sea. We will go dolphin sighting with the fisherman. There will be a gamelan orchestra lesson with the village gamelan leader. We will become friends with the village children and adults as they practice their English, and at the same time teach us about their lives and culture.
This will be the trip of a lifetime. We will be living and working alongside the Balinese in the fishing village of Les in Bali, Indonesia. The village people will open their homes and hearts to us and we will repay them by helping them to rebuild their reef system. We will work with them to collect and replant coral and in the evenings, give them a chance to improve their English skills as they develop a new ecotourism infrastructure. We will live with local fishermen, work with salt farmers, have cooking lessons, learn about sustainable fishing, indigenous architecture, and explore the local surroundings.
We will spend twelve nights in the village, while taking a few day trips to explore the island. We will then spend our last two nights in a hotel in Ubud, the cultural center of Bali, and learn about traditional painting, music and dance.
