Skills-based volunteering utilizes your skills, experience, talents and education and matches them with the needs of non-profits. Connecting you with the right skills to the right project at the right time will allow getting a greater impact and building stronger relationships between you and the organisation. Therefore it means increasing your interest to do ongoing projects for the already known organisation. You can assist with planned projects or respond to immediate critical needs. Bali Studies focuses on the value of your time by ensuring that it is used to create real results.
The impact of a skills-based program on the work of a non-profit depends closely on effective implementation. There are a wide range of volunteering projects in Bali or cross Indonesia:
Volunteers should not be asked to be physically present at any specific location. The Online Volunteer connects organisations working for sustainable development with volunteers.

The Indonesian maritime region comprises around 17,000 islands, has about 240 million inhabitants and is the 4th most populous country of the world. The capital city Jakarta is located in the very northern part of Java, is vibrant and the mirror of the diversity. Here, the tradition meets the modern life style.
With a rich flora and fauna, the Indonesian flowering is throughout the year and enchants with its abundance of color and variety of species. Because of this diversity and abundance, as well as the mild climate, people in Indonesia lead an easy-going life - throughout their life and in all social categories. The Indonesian and the Balinese open and friendly mind delight more and more people.
Indonesia is diverse and unites more than 300 different ethnic groups. These unique cultural identities have developed over the centuries. Indonesians will surprise you many times and make your stay enjoyable and interesting. Lots of questions will be asked and everyone will want to try their English with you.
The rich natural resources are the driving force of the economy. The so-called Ring of Fire magically attracts alternative energy plans. Some large-scale projects are supported and promoted by various nations and the World Bank. All large-scale enterprises operating worldwide reside in Indonesia.
Bali has many names: island of the Gods, Shiva, island of 1,000 temples and others. Bali lies in east of Java and is surrounded with coral reefs. The beaches in the south are white, while those in the north and the west have black volcanic sand. Bali's capital Denpasar is also the biggest town.
There is plenty to see, and lots of interesting things to do. If you were to spend hours going around, you would have barely cratched the surface of the host of experiences it has to offer. Bali is more than the sum of the letters. The most important tourist places are Kuta, Legian and Seminyak, Sanur in the east; Ubud in the center; Jimbaran in the south; Nusa Dua and Pecatu are developing to be tourist centers. At the north is the sleeping fisher nest, called Lovina. This is a place for relaxing and swimming with dolphins.
The Balinese have strong spiritual roots and despite the large influx of tourists over the years, their culture is still very much alive. Balinese people are Hindu, yet their religion is very different from the Indian variety. Naturally creative, the Balinese have traditionally used their talent for religious purposes and most of the beautiful work to be seen here has been inspired by stories from Ramayana and other Hindu epics. Balinese people strongly believe in magic and the power of spirits, basing much of their religious on this.
Life in Bali is very communal with the organisation of villages, farming and even the creative arts being decided by the community. All aspects of life are placed in the hands of two traditional committees, whose roots in Balinese culture stretch back centuries. The first, Subak, concerns the production of rice and organizes the complex irrigation system.
The other community organisation is the Banjar, responsible for arranging all village festivals, marriage ceremonies and cremations. Most village have at least one Banjar and all mean have to join when they marry. Banjars, on average, give membership to 50 up to 100 families and all Banjars have their own meeting place called the Bali Banjar.
