During my time spent in Temanggung, I helped Hardy in his different projects ( tourism promotion, English conversations with the local ). The goal of all of this is to open the beautiful and authentic region of Temanggung to the world.
The best thing is that you will have the opportunity to be fully integrated in his family and in his community, and get to know the real Javanese culture. I had the opportunity to learn about the process of Tobacco, coffee, soja and Tea production.


I’ve had such a unique experience thank you again Hardy !!!

This is a very unique and rewarding experience! Hardi was a great and interesting host that has lots of local knowledge. Sometimes there is a lot of waiting around as Indonesian custom is very laid back. The living conditions are very basic as you will be completely integrated into the community and local way of life. I was welcomed into Hardi's house and his wife and kids were so polite and friendly. You will be able to visit some incredible places that have not been affected by over-tourism, making for a real authentic and genuinely local experience. Keep an open mind and you'll have a great

The experience was amazing! If you're looking for a total immersion in the Indonesian culture, this is the place for you. Live like a local!
I loved that, I saw many interesting things, learned a lot, met amazing people...
Hardi and his wife were very nice, helpful and warming.
The only "negative" thing I could say is: don't expect for a super detailed programme. Things will just flow with the days. But this is not something bad if you know it.
Thanks for a great experience! :)

Trata-se de um projeto ambicioso que pretende criar uma rede constante de voluntários ajudando as vilas da região a aprender inglês (desde crianças até comerciantes, com o intuito de fazer florescer o turismo na região). No momento, ainda não está estruturado o suficiente em termos de atividades diárias de ensino da língua, portanto espere bastante tempo inútil. Por outro lado, os anfitriões estão bem preparados e recebem os voluntários muito bem, o que deixa muito tempo para conhecer a cultura local.
