PMGY Bali offers me amazing memories

The pre-departure help was amazing. The international team provided answers to all of my questions and offered a great support. At the final destination, everything was planned and arranged. The pick-up at the airport was trouble-free. The accommodation in Bali was clean and had everything you need. Indra and his family made you feel very welcome. It felt like a second home. There are different projects everyday if you do the wildlife one, which is so cool. I got to meet so many different species and got to be in direct contact with them by feeding, cleaning and by taking care of them. Overall, I am more than happy that I could experience PMGY Bali.

Pros
  • A lot of different animals
  • Helpful and nice host family
  • Amazing friends
Cons
  • Be careful about your food
  • You might catch Bali belly
  • Time flies by too fast

I had a wonderful time with PMGY Bali

The past few days have been one of the best times I've ever had! I just wanna say thank you to all the people who have generously helped me in my time of need.

The first night I couldn't sleep so I climbed on the roof to see the sunrise and I saw people getting up early to start their day. Once when we passed a house I saw an old lady put an offering in front of the gate and reverently sprinkled a few drops of water. These moments really made me feel the passion and love for life of the people here.

And I still remember the joy when I first held Sunny in my arms and the feeling of a baby goat with its little head on my hand.

And again hank you for being my home during the past few days. See you again! :)

Pros
  • You can meet fabulous people here.
  • The local team is very kind and friendly.
  • The time spent with those adorable animals is truly unforgettable.
Cons
  • Be cautious with your food choices.

The program was truly amazing

I spent 2 weeks volunteering with PMGY Bali. I hadn’t done volunteer projects before much less going overseas alone, but the support provided was amazing. There were zoom calls you could join before going in which you could ask any questions you had which helped ease any worries I had about going. The food and accommodation was great as-well as the staff who were there for you whenever you needed it. The other volunteers were great and I wasn’t as nervous about meeting and living with people I had never met before. The projects it’s self was amazing I loved that I got to work on something different each day. My whole time there was amazing and I had to stop myself from asking if I could stay for longer.

Pros
  • The project
  • The people
  • The experience
Cons
  • The bugs

Bali English teaching

I thoroughly enjoyed volunteering in Bali I would definetly recommend the Gili T island weekend trip and the English teaching program the kids that you teach are amazing and range from 6-12 years old, I enjoyed teaching the younger kids the most! You may also get the opportunity to attend a lunch hosted by the students at kanva college which I would recommend attending. The hostel in Bali is great aswell it has everything you need and Indra and ketut and all the staff and driver are always very helpful!

Pros
  • Building social skills
  • Learning about a new culture
  • Working with keen to learn young children

What an experience!!

I can hands down say that deciding to do plan my gap year bail was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! I did the real Bali experience which was incredible allowing me to see the variety Bali has to offer in a safe and secure way! Budi and Mr C were the best guides we could have asked for making sure we had EVERYTHING we could want! I then volunteered for 2 weeks doing the English teaching project which wasn’t long enough in my opinion where I was welcomed into the volunteer house by Indra and his family! All in all I can say if you’re on the fence about whether to go out not I say DO IT! you won’t regret it! I’m already planning on which plan my gap year destination to go next! :)

Pros
  • Affordable
  • Good communication
  • Friendly

Wildlife volunteering in Bali

I had an amazing 4 weeks volunteering on the wildlife program with PMGY in Bali. The program is well structured, leaving loads of free time that you can use to explore Bali both during the evenings and (most effectively) at weekends, when you are free to travel further away. The only small note would be that there is sometimes a slight lack of things to do on the program, but I'm sure this will be easily fixed with a few tweaks. The support is all around exceptional both before and during your program, with any questions you might have prior to going answered quickly and clearly. The in-country team are kind, friendly and all-around incredible, especially as I had an injury requiring some medical attention and Indra, Milly and Ketut were amazing in making sure I understood and had everything I needed.
In all, I couldn't recommend the program enough - the team and house are perfect, the country is beautiful and you will make some great friends x

Pros
  • Amazing travel
  • Wonderful people
  • Great support
Cons
  • Slight lack of activities

Bali experience

I just came back from the PMGY Bali English teaching trip. I had the most amazing time ever, I wouldn’t take it back for anything in the world. I went with one of my best friends, but I believe this trip would have been great to go solo, as most people I met on the trip did! Getting there was really smooth and the driver was waiting for us once we arrived at the airport. Once we got to the volunteer house Indra and Nadia greeted us and showed us around the whole house. We quickly felt at peace in our new “home”. Orientation went really smooth and we were able to get volunteering in no time. At the time I was there was about 50 other volunteers so it was amazing to meet so many people from all over the world. Everyone quickly became friends and we’d use our spare time to hang out. The weekends were especially fun to explore Bali with new friends, I’d recommend going to Nusa Penida island just because it’s so beautiful. This experience was 10/10 and I’d recommend PMGY to anyone:)))

Pros
  • Easy to make friends
  • Weekends off
  • Volunteering really immerses yourself in the culture

Bali Childcare with PMGY

I did childcare in Bali for 3 weeks and I have to admit these were the most life changing weeks in my life so far. Before I even came I was anxious about the pick up, because I was arriving late in night, so I assumed nobody's going to be there, because you know it's outside their working hours. But I was wrong, staff 10000% will pick you up, no doubt. Also, they will help you to settle in, move your stuff in the house and make sure you are having a good time. In my opinion, accommodation was better than I expected. Really nice rooms, I d want to say even luxurious + they have a pool + you can also sunbath. The food was amazing. You will get to experience 10/10 Indonesian food. For breakfast we had variety of fruits (e.g. Dragonfruit(which personally I am big fan of), watermelon, papaya, pineapple and others). Fulfilling lunch and dinner. Therefore, the house is near from famous Bali night markets(like 7min walk), where you can get everything very cheap and have a good time and maybe bound with your fellow Co-volunteers. I was suprised by the working hours. Childcare was from around 8am till like 11:30am and then lunch break + rest time and then second period from like 2pm till 04:30pm, which, in my opinion, are great working hours and you don't get worn out. Which makes me think that PMGY cares about your well-being. Big shout-out for that! Therefore, you have free time from Thursday evening till Sunday evening, where you can explore Bali!!! How amazing is that?! In fact, if you consider to childcare in Bali, I can promise you it's gonna be one of the most rewarding experiences! Indonesian children are the sweetest and kindest children you will ever meet. I loved spending time with them, playing, being silly, teaching simple English throughout games etc. Staff is great there, they will help you out no matter what! If you consider to do Bali childcare DO IT! I promise you won't regret!P.S. 3 weeks for me flew away so quick, I wish I was there for longer❤️😭

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
Indonesian food is very authentic and if you like spicy foods - it's a place for you. I personally, don't enjoy spice as much, but I do love fruits. One of the most unfamiliar fruits I ate was a snake fruit. Its hard to describe how it tasted. It's like a combination of a pear and something else. Try it :) Also, I really liked papaya, dragon fruit. I highly suggest you to push yourself out of your comfort zone and experiment with cuisine over there.
