Special skills: None required, just enthusiasm for animal welfare and reasonable physical fitness to work in a tropical climate. Veterinarians and vet nurses are welcome to support this project
Details: Tasikoki rescue centre was set-up in 2001 to tackle the hub of illegal trade in Indonesian wildlife being smuggled through Sulawesi on its way to the Philippines and then on to the global market. Sadly many of the confiscated animals have nowhere safe to be released and must remain in care at the rescue centre until better protection of Indonesia’s forests can be established.

There are several Orangutan programs but they tend to require both larger financial and time commitments.

I recently volunteered with children with disabilities and teaching english to children aged 10-16 years old near Ubud.
The non-profit learning has wonderful projects (like arts and craft, sport, dancing, computers,music) for the underprivileged children and volunteers accommodation is located onsite at a home stay.

Great experience

You can also try a well organised non-profit Indonesian organisation at a small traditional fishing village on the north-east part of Bali, Indonesia. Volunteers teach English classes to children from 5 to 18 years. There is also a Program teaching Computer Skills to the older students.
Go to Volunteering in Bali for more details on how to take part in this learning centre.
