Although we are a small organization, we have a big dream.
The next step in VP Bali’s Mission is to provide land and space for our community’s sustainable village, complete with:
- A central school to provide free education for the Balinese kids
- An eco-homestay for our volunteers, which will also create more job opportunities for our students and locals
- A Bale for our talented students to perform their talents: Balinese and modern dance, art and traditional music performances, and many more
- A studio for our students with special needs as a place for them to focus on learning extra skills to provide for themselves
- An organic garden and farm to produce our own organic food and herbs, host workshops on Balinese natural herbs, and educate our students about the agricultural processes
- A public kitchen where our staff and students can show their amazing culinary skills and also share the food with those in need
- A recycling warehouse where we can keep recyclable materials and turn them into something useful for the village
We hope to expand volunteer opportunities outside of teaching English, so that diverse and passionate niche individuals from all over the world can encourage community growth through teaching life skills and valuable trades. Through this project, we aim to encourage continued learning of local traditions and create a full-circle community of learning where all involved can grow together.
We can do some of this alone, but we can do so much more together!
Compassionate individuals, experts, organizations, or even companies – no matter how big or small your contribution is, if you share our values, respect for the local culture and traditions, and want to give back please reach out to us.
CONNECT. INTEGRATE. RESPECT. MAINTAIN
For almost four years, VP Bali’s presence through our free English classes has allowed us to develop a strong relationship with Ubud’s local communities. The support from our students and their families is the driving force for us to continue improving and find more ways to give back.
In Indonesia, gaining trust from the local community and obtaining legal paperwork is not easy. While we have integrated into our local culture, in line with the needs of our community, navigating around the system in place presents many issues. For this, we are grateful to local officials and community members for socially accepting us into their daily lives, as their support helps us continue to grow and bring our dreams to life.

We strive to give everyone an opportunity to grow and develop their professional and personal skills. As VP Bali is a small and local organization, interns will be a part of our family during their stay and get a good glance of all the work that we are doing. We have qualified members in our team to guide and supervise the interns during their stay and give them the necessary feedback and directions.
Interns who are coming through a school program are able to work on their personal assignments as well. The positions match the requirements of most international universities. Besides the school-related special assignments, our management team always looks at the personal skills and interests of each intern and will try our best to help them reach their fullest potential.
