Genial English Course

Some volunteering projects in Riau may involve working with local communities, especially the youth, to improve their English language skills. English cafes are informal settings where you can engage in conversations with locals who want to practice English. It's a fun and relaxed way to exchange cultures and language tips.
Riau Province offers fantastic opportunities for camping enthusiasts. You can camp in the lush rainforests. Imagine falling asleep under a sky full of stars, surrounded by the sounds of nature. Camping trips with fellow volunteers can create unforgettable memories.
There are also various hiking trails suitable for different levels of experience. You can trek through the dense jungles, spot wildlife, and maybe even discover hidden waterfalls. It's a great way to stay active and connect with nature.
While volunteering in Riau, don't miss out on trying the delicious local cuisine. You can savor traditional dishes like Rendang (spicy beef stew), Ikan Bakar (grilled fish), and various tasty snacks. Exploring the local food scene is an essential part of immersing yourself in the culture.
Engage in cultural workshops where you can learn traditional crafts, music, and dance from local artisans. It's a great way to appreciate and support the local arts and crafts scene.
Overall, volunteering in Riau Province not only allows you to make a difference but also presents a chance to explore the region's natural beauty, try thrilling outdoor activities, indulge in local cuisine, and engage in cultural experiences that will stay with you for a lifetime.

I'm Farouk, and I used to work in Pekanbaru with my friends Ridho, and Dian. Now, we are in different places because of new assignments. But our passion for helping people with English and promoting diverse cultures is still strong. That's why we want volunteers from around the world to join us in this project. If you join us, we will take you not only to one but three amazing cities during your time as a volunteer with us! We've prepared a mix of different things to do, making sure your trip is full of fantastic memories and meaningful moments. In Rokan Hulu, you'll get a chance to make a big difference by teaching at our private school and local schools and universities. You'll be inspiring young people, helping them learn and grow. Your passion for education will light up their lives and bring positive change to the community. Next, we'll head to Pekanbaru, a busy city. Here, you'll help people in government offices improve their English. By doing this, you'll help them communicate better. It's an important skill that can open up new opportunities for them and create a stronger community. Our last stop is Rokan Hilir, a place filled with culture and exciting tourism. You'll be able to experience local traditions, try delicious foods, and enjoy traditional dances and music. By embracing their culture, you'll connect with the friendly locals and learn about the beauty of different ways of life. This isn't just a sightseeing trip. It's a chance to connect with people, make a positive impact, and create lasting memories. You'll meet locals, hear their stories, and become a part of their lives, even for a short while. It's an opportunity to grow personally and understand the world in a new way. We're a friendly bunch and want everyone to feel welcome and included. No matter where you come from or what you know, we value your ideas and skills. We believe in working together as a team. We'll support each other, share knowledge, and have a great time doing it! Our goal is to create a safe and enjoyable experience for you. We love diversity, and we can't wait to learn from each other. Together, we can do amazing things and help the communities we work with. So, if you want to make a real impact and have fun doing good, join our team of motivated volunteers. We're excited to have you on board! 😊

I’ve been traveling for 5 months and this volunteering has been definitely one of the best experience of my trip. Farouk is a wonderful person, with beautiful values and gave his best to make me confortable. I’ve met so kind and welcoming people. I lived with Indonesian for 2 weeks, learned more about their culture, way of living, food… I visited many schools and everytime I loved it. The children are very happy to meet foreigners and speak English. I recommend you without any hesitation to apply for this volunteering, you won’t be disappointed. Thank you so much to Farouk for everything.

It was indeed my lifetime experience and the most fruitful 2 weeks in my life!
I can't thank enough my host Farouk and his family who welcomed me and took care of me! They treated me as a member of his family and now I have another lovely family in Pekanbaru!

My activity was mainly to visit schools from elementary to university and culture exchange, introduction of Japan using presentation slides followed by Q&A.
I really enjoyed interacting with students everyday!
Each one of their enthusiastic faces full of curiosity and motivation is unforgettable! Hope to meet them again! Terima kasih!
