The Construction and Renovation project is to support the village community centers such as the village school, village playground, public library etc. Together we will make a difference for the local villages and children, by supporting them to have better living conditions.

The Construction and Renovation project on Lombok supports small communities in and around the island. It aims to build and renovate buildings that are essential for the growth and development of the local community. Our project helps relieve them of some of the stress and pressure that they are living under. Project participants work under a local foreman (coordinator) who provides guidance and training alongside local families. The project involves hard physical and manual labor, as you will be laying bricks, doing carpentry, painting, laying tiles, and landscaping/gardening.

Supplies

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 Indonesian (Lombok) economy. Below we have listed some supplies that are very helpful on the teaching and street children programs.

  • Hankies
  • Balloons
  • Bubble Solution
  • Face Paint
  • Music player and some children's music
