Indonesia

Principles for Individual Volunteer Program

  • All our projects are open to volunteer who are from 18 - 35 years old when the project starts. Above 35 years old upon consultation. 
     
  • Indonesia is a conservative country and especially when volunteers work in the local institution and community. We request the volunteers no visible piercings on face, no visible tattoos, wears clothing appropriate, common hair style (no colorful, dreadlock) and for those who are going for project related with the kids must attach Certificate Good Conduct from the police in the application. The volunteer should love to work with children,teenager and local people, open minded, be mature, respectful of local customs, tolerant, creative, flexible, patient, confidence and independent especially in motivating the students to speak up and be active in practicing conversation   
  • Candidate should sign document project agreement, declaration of conduct and other documents requested by hosting organization. The form must be signed and sent back to Dejavato before coming to Indonesia.
  • The projects are mainly related to education and health care. For the educational/teaching projects a minimum intermediate level of English (as much certified as possible) is required while for the health care projects the Foundation requires a proof that the applicants are medical students or practitioners
  •  Volunteers will be supported by the local project responsible, a mentor (usually a Dejavato volunteer who is not involved in the project activities) and Dejavato office. Regular meeting between the volunteer and the mentor will be organized and facilitated by the Foundation. The volunteers will have at their disposal an emergency number active 24/24 – 7/7 in case of major problem
  • We are NOT open for any mentally challenged participants and participants who have mentally challenged record due to lack of our capability in handling the people with mental disabilities. Our project also do not have facilities which can support participants with mental disabilities. We request the sending organization to be open, transparent in giving information about the participant’s health and mentaly record. We prefer not to host the participants with mentaly challenged and mentally challenged record such as autism, mental disabilities etc.
  • Projects starts at the beginning and finishes at the end of the indicated months (please check the MLTV project list you find below). Due to the complication of visa regulation, the placements are between one to twelve months with the limitation of the days (pay attention to the number of the days) and we request the volunteers to contribute the visa extension cost partially with the condition as follows:

The accommodation will be simple and Indonesian style: no hot water, traditional Indonesian bath/shower, no washing machine and traditional Indonesian toilet. Volunteers may be required to share the bedroom with another family member and to adapt to the daily rhythm of the family (Indonesians usually gets up very early, between 4 and 6 o’ clock).
