Volunteering Opportunities in Bali
On behalf of the Slukat family, staff, and students, we send you our best wishes for peace, joy, health and happiness this holiday season and throughout the New Year.
Thank you for your continues help and Support.
May God Always Bless You
On Friday March 23, 2011, Balinese celebrated its New Year. The day is called Nyepi, It’s a day of total silence through out the island. People are not allowed to go out, light are allowed to lighten and no traffic including air traffic. All you can hear is the bird singing, the wind blowing and the ocean wave bursting. It’s the time to reflects your life in silence.
I hope to return in 2012 and I recommend this as an English teaching placement to any person wanting an extremely rewarding experience in their lives. So Slukat Learning Center might be a small drop in a big pool, of Not For Profit organizations.
The students are enthusiastic, friendly, respectful and absolutely take away all your insecurities. SLC is run by caring founders who give a lot of thought how to set up a program for the students to give them optimum opportunity to have a good future. I respect that so much and I hope SLC may welcome a lot of children during it's existence.
"It’s really a wonderful little town and the perfect place to meet other volunteers and travelers. One of the things that stood out for me about Slukat was their strong local support network for volunteers, something I’ve learned makes a huge difference in enriching your experience here."
"I’m sorry to say that I don’t have a happily ever after Eat, Pray, Love ending, but I do feel fully rested and rejuvenated as I return to the Western world. In fact, I think I have more questions now than before I arrived. But for some strange reason, I am not burdened by it as before. It fact, it feels pretty darn good."
