After 4 weeks of volunteering in kindergarten I have nothing to say but a big thank you @ivhq for giving me the opportunity to share a little of my knowledge and my love to a community full of kindness and happiness. I’m very happy and satisfied with the work I’ve done here and I hope I have been able to make a mark on each of my children in Kumara Wiyata School.
I feel blessed to have met extraordinary people who have become in a good friends, and friends that are now like sisters. And without a doubt @greenlionbali has become in my second family in Bali.
Terimakasih all 🙏🏻

IVHQ Bali - Ubud Volunteer

I volunteered in Bali - Ubud for the health care education program. This was an amazing trip and I LOVED working with all of the kiddos! Bali is absolutely beautiful and I highly recommend this destination. I enjoyed my experience with IVHQ. Where I stayed was fine, it was clean and the staff did everything they could to accommodate us. There were bunk beds and I was paired with 5 other people in the room. Food was awesome as well! All of the staff, volunteer coordinators, cooks, taxi drivers, etc. were absolutely amazing and made the experience organized and enjoyable! For the program itself, it seemed slightly unorganized at first because there weren't enough people for certain programs so they were having some people switch programs, but only if they wanted to. With that being said, my program, health care education was amazing. I did find that I was teaching children English and spending time with the kids rather than teaching them specifically about healthcare but I still really enjoyed it! I was able to teach them about washing their hands and how to live healthy! One more thing that people who are travelling with IVHQ should know is that you are required to have a one week orientation. The orientation is fun, you get to learn a lot about the country and culture that you are travelling in. However, it does take some time away from volunteering so make sure to plan for this while planning how long you will stay in your destination. Overall, I LOVED my experience in Bali and would recommend IVHQ to people who are wanting to volunteer abroad.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
Honestly, I would stay longer! I was in Bali for 2 weeks but if I could change it, I would most likely stay for about 4 weeks, that way I could spend more time on the weekends travelling!

IVHQ Bali Ubud - Environmental Education Program

Volunteering with IVHQ in Ubud, Bali was one of the most rewarding experiences I've ever had. It helped me see and understand another culture and its people while feeling a part of their beautiful community.I am very grateful for everything that I learned and saw and it was of course a real pleasure to have the chance teach such smart children. I would totally recommend this program to anyone who is looking for an amazing and rewarding volunteering experience. I will always remember those 4 weeks as one of the best experiences of my life.

IVHQ is your go to for volunteering abroad

What an amazing way to take help the environment and take a holiday at the same time! All while meeting lifelong friends from around the world. I spent three weeks with IVHQ in Bali - 1 week orientation in Ubud and two weeks at the Turtle Conservation on Nusa Penida. I would definitely recommend the orientation week as you get to meet everyone and do tours around Ubud. The turtle conservation work was great either working with turtles or cleaning beaches, with time to rest and relax in between. I would recommend IVHQ as an organisation for anyone thinking of volunteering abroad. They are so organised, provide so much information before you go and also check-in when you return home. I loved my time in Bali, you will too!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
If you’re thinking of travelling alone but scared to (like I was), then do a volunteering trip, you will meet so many amazing people in the process!

This program was life changing! I had to opportunity to travel across the world to Bali, Indonesia. I was able to not only create a positive impact on the community with teaching, but also learn about their culture, and meet lifelong friends along the way. I participated in the Ubud, Bali program for kindergarten teaching. The staff strive to make it the best experience possible, and the Green Lion house is nothing but accommodating and clean. I would highly recommend this experience to anyone contemplating it. Definitely going to return soon!

Green Lion, Ubud Bali IVHQ

This wasn’t my first try at oversea volunteering, but it was my best so far. IVHQ was in constant contact with me from my initial registration to days before my departure for Bali.
Upon arrival (12:00 am) I was met by a driver who took me to the Green Lion site just outside of Ubud and a rep was there waiting for me and got me squared away right away. The next day I met with the coordinators and started orientation immediately, I opted for cultural week (highly recommended). On the Monday of my second week I started my 3 week stint on the construction program helping to build a school in the next village. We started as a crew of over 20 volunteers, but as the days passed and people finished their time, the numbers went down. For me construction is very satisfying, in seeing the job at hand and working together to complete the job. I know that the work carried on after I left but I’ll always know I am a part of the school. I am thankful to IVHQ for the opportunity to be more, but more so I’m thankful for the well organized support system that lets me know I wasn’t alone.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
If possible, I would have explored more of Bali on my weekends and took in more opportunities in Abud on the evenings.

Bali kindergarten program IVHQ

Bali review
My name is Maria, I'm from Colombia and I'm 21 years old, I volunteered in Bali for 2 weeks in the kindergarten program. Volunteering was an unbelievable idea I had since I was in school, an adventure I always wanted to be part of and a dream I’ve always had since I discovered the volunteering world. When the idea of coming to Bali came to my mind, I couldn't be more excited and happy about having my dream becoming true. The application was ready and my 32 flying hours we're almost done.
I arrived at the volunteer's house and since I entered I knew It was going to be one of the best experiences of my life. The local team was incredibly warm, they treated me as if they knew me for a long time ago, and we became part of a new family. Since that moment I fell in love with the Balinese culture, its people and their beliefs. When I start working with the children all these feelings became stronger, they taught me that you don't need to speak the same language to transmit love, that faith is stronger than any problem on the road, that sharing and saying thank you is the most important value, and that a smile says more than a thousand words. I learned from every person I met, I travel around Bali enjoying the food, the temples, and getting myself into the culture with some yoga and meditation classes. These 2 weeks of volunteer taught me more than many other experiences have done in my whole life, I'll recommend Ivhq to anyone who wants to help the world, knowing that at the end you'll learn and you'll get more than you're actually giving. Thank you so much IVHQ

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Enjoy every moment of the program ! Travel around Bali and meet new people, make friends and speak with the local team, they have amazing story’s to tell. Always smile to the children, give the best of you even if the language barrier is difficult, they’ll manage to transmit their message to you.

Kindergarten & Turtle Conservation: Amazing experience!

I volunteered in Ubud, Bali for a total of 7 weeks. It was such an awesome and life-changing experience where I got to learn so much about the Balinese culture and lifestyle, but also grow so much as a person. I helped out as a kindergarten teacher for 4 weeks. Every day I would have a little lesson planned for the kids; I would handout some worksheets, play games with them and be there for their breakfast/lunch. The kids were so loving and full of energy! I loved being by their side every single day and see their beautiful smiles :) I miss my class a lot, they truly have a special place in my heart. I also volunteered on the turtle conservation program while in Bali. It was amazing to live alongside locals and help out with an environmental cause on a daily basis. At the turtle centre I got to clean turtle tanks, feed and clean the turtles and I even got to experience a turtle release while I was there. It was such an emotional experience to get to set a turtle free and bring her back to her natural habitat. On top of helping with the turtles, we also did beach and street cleaning. I would 100% recommend IVHQ and the Bali program, it was an experience I will never forget!!

What was your funniest moment?
One of the funniest moments when I was a kindergarten teacher was that one of the kids took my phone during play time. She turned on the camera and took sooooo many pictures of the kids, me and the kids and also a lot of random things! It made me laugh so much and I still have all the pictures hahaha I attached a little collage of some of them to this review.

Hi Salma, Great to hear that you're interested in volunteering and that your parents are supporting your trip! IVHQ Volunteers must be 18 years or older to participate on our programs. However, if you are volunteering as part of a group with one of (or both of) your parents, a guardian or other family member who is 18 years or over, you would be eligible to participate. Otherwise, If you're due to...

IVHQ requires that all volunteers participating on the program be at least 18 years old. However, if you volunteer with a parent or guardian on the same project as you, you can go at younger than 18. It is important to note that the local organization, Green Lion Bali, does host volunteers from other organizations other than IVHQ, and some of those organizations have different age requirements...
