Volunteer Abroad in Indonesia for 4-52 Weeks
Securing its independence after World War II, Indonesia has continued in its important role as a trade region, which dates back to the seventh century. Since declaring independence, Indonesia has been turbulent, with challenges posed by natural disasters, corruption, separatism, a democratization process, and periods of rapid economic change. Hot springs, exotic animals, and beautiful rock formations leave little for volunteers to want in this magnificent country.
