Hi, my name is Ida. I resigned from formal schools since 6 years ago to help my husband organize his institution, Kampoeng Sinaoe (non profit organization) since 16 years ago. While the students are learning, I enclose some moral values, cooperation, conservation awareness, charity, social projects and many more. We host many poor and the orphans students without payments. Our goal is to build a balanced education system for the poor and the rich. We are in need of more volunteers to make our institution grow better and bigger. Our village can continue to be empowered by the many resources the institution provides it. I want this institution to benefit not only around my village, in Sidoarjo area, but throughout Indonesia. I believe good education is the precious asset we need to reach our dreams, and to make Indonesia a better nation. I have various students here. Starting from kindergarten until university students, employees or professionals. We distinguish them in some classes or levels. As our classrooms our centre has eco-gazebos and we use some of the local people's front space as classes.

Ida and Roni are excellent hosts. I got to meet so many wonderful kids during my stay. I am missing them so much already. The place was tough to adjust to for me, due to being a light sleeper and new to travel, but they were very kind, empathetic and helpful.

If you want to fully immerse yourself in the local culture, this is the perfect place for you!
You will find amazing people with a good heart, welcoming, kind and friendly. Ida prepared for me all the typical Indonesian dishes possible (vegetarian). Also she bought a lot of fruit and sweet food because she knew I loved it:) you will leave the place with the feeling of having a second family there.
The students are eager to learn more about your culture and language knowledge!

I have absolutely loved my time volunteering here. The host and the whole family are amazing. They are very welcoming, friendly, generous, caring and kind. I couldn’t sing their praises enough.

They will help immerse you into the local culture by helping you try all the Indonesia food, taking you to events, talking to you about Indonesia and their lives and just generally showing you around.

The students you will teach are very respectful and are keen to learn. The teaching is very relaxed and there’s no pressure put on you.
