Hi my names Ellie!
I have been offered an amazing opportunity volunteering for 9 weeks in Tabanan, Bali on the 29th February.
It consists of helping less fortunate children learn English and develop their social skills to create more opportunities for them in the future.
I will be staying in a house with others where we will be volunteering in the local community.
Every morning for 9 weeks I will be placed in a nursery where the children will be from less fortunate backgrounds. I will be caring for them and forming close bonds with them. I believe that teaching this age group is not as structured as teaching adults, their language can be improved simply through play. Play is one of the main ways a child should learn. It helps to build self worth by giving a child a sense of his/her own abilities and to feel good about themselves. Because it’s fun, children often become absorbed in what they are doing. I want to create positive memories as every child deserves to laugh and smile. Education at this level will allow them to improve their future and that of their families.
I will also partake in the local community, helping the elders and forming close relationships with the locals. As a volunteer, I will carry out renovation work in a number of community facilities in and around the country such as schools, government hospitals, orphanages and Buddhist temples. These institutions struggle to find the funding and manpower to undertake important development work. With your help, WE can further support their community and can do our bit to leave a positive lasting impression!
This programme is an empowering and rewarding one to really make a difference to those less fortunate. I hope to make a positive impact in peoples lives, and give something back to the world as well as finding myself on this journey.
Please could you help me raise money for this extraordinary opportunity, and help these people just like us in a time of need.

As a volunteer, I will be working very closely with less fortunate children caring and teaching them. I will carry out renovation work in a number of community facilities. These institutions struggle to find the funding and manpower to undertake important development work.
