"If you are still wandering whether Bali is the best choice for your volunteering project I tell you: Yes! I really recommend this experience to everybody.”Virginia Petetti
"The coordinator provided excellent information including information about the local culture and people. She also gave me lots of information about surrounding places and good places to visit. My coordinator is extremely helpful and has gone above and beyond. In my introduction week I have been immersed into the culture of Bali. The food and accommodation is brilliant. The food has been freshly prepared by local people and is always delicious.”Victoria Howard
