Volunteering in Indonesia

Why Volunteering in Indonesia?

The Republic of Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world comprising 13,466 large and small tropical islands fringed with white sandy beaches, many still uninhabited and a number even still unnamed. Indonesia has a total population of more than 215 million people from more than 200 ethnic groups. Culturally, Indonesia fascinates with her rich diversity of ancient temples, music, ranging from the traditional to modern pop, dances, rituals and ways of life, changing from island to island, from region to region. Yet everywhere, volunteer feels welcomed with that warm, gracious innate friendliness of the Indonesian people that is not easily forgotten.

Our Program

As IIWC collaborate STV (Workcamp), VSTV (Weekend Work camp) and long term volunteering to achieve each project goals, therefore, all STV and VSTV project sites are the IIWC Long & Middle term Volunteering (LMTV) project sites as well. Two camp leaders (or one for small group) are volunteering together in STV and VSTV.They are volunteers who are selected, trained, and mandated several responsibilities to facilitate and lead the workcamps. However, the successful of a workcamp is determined by the team work.
Short Term Voluntary

Short Term Volunteering (STV) also called as workcamp is an international volunteering program where volunteers stay 1 – 3 weeks for the project. Volunteers work in teams. There are 5-15 for volunteers volunteering together in one workcamp.The workcamp volunteers are expected to be team players, be able and enjoy exploring ideas especially on the implementing part of the project.

Very-Short Term Voluntary

Very Short Term Volunteering (VSTV) or as well-known as Weekend Workcamp is an international volunteering program where volunteers will stay less than 2 weeks (3 – 5 Days).
