“I really enjoyed getting out into a local community and discovering how people live their lives in Bali. My favourite part was helping to plant rice and getting in the mud with the cows!!” – Hannah, Perth, Australia
Positive Impact Statement
We’ve designed this experience to provide economic opportunities to the local community and provide them with the opportunity to present their culture to visitors in their own way.
Proceeds from this travel experience support our partner, Five Pillar Foundation, and their Youth Skill Development & Empowerment Programs.
Five Pillar Foundations works with village youth to help prepare them for their future, providing a local co-working space with Wi-Fi, and a range of free classes including computer literacy, digital design, internet marketing entrepreneurship, photography and English language. Five Pillar Foundation also run special excursions to villages throughout West Bali, with an aim to provide young Indonesians with the technical skills, passion and inspiration they need to build their own successful enterprises and find ways to help their local community make the best use of available resources. Five Pillar’s programs help empower young people to get involved in the protection and preservation of their culture, communities and environment.
This experience has been created to provide economic opportunities to the local community and also allow the local community to present their own culture to visitors in their own way.
