Our volunteering program in Mandeh focuses on facilitating and developing the raw potentials of the local people. With stunning location and untouched nature, the local community is looking to develop an eco-tourism complex that will hopefully create more economic growth. They are excited to grow with their hometown and to share the pristine beauty of their islands with visitors from all around the world.

As a volunteer, you will teach English to local youth representations that will then pass the knowledge onto their peers. This lesson aims to prepare them for better communication with international visitors in the future. You may also need to include teaching materials that will help them run their business.

Located in the beautiful archipelago on the coast of West Sumatra, Mandeh boasts picturesque islands (each with unique characteristics of their own) over calm clear waters. Experience the idyllic coastal life among a tight-knit community; you will never run out of new things to learn!

Throughout the program, you will stay with a local host family, which is a wonderful opportunity to experience the local culture first-hand. Get to know what an Indonesian family is like, and learn how to navigate between the rich traditional culture and the bustling city scene! 

Program Highlights:
  • Teach English to local youth representatives
  • Help improving their communication skills in daily life and business context
  • Contribute to the development of local ecotourism
  • Experience the untouched beauty of Mandeh among its tight-knit community

"The main thing I took away from volunteering abroad was how incredible it is to be able to come together to work with people from all over the world! I made a lot of new friends."
