The volunteering activity will also be good for your resume.

In the weekends you can visit touristic sites around Makassar. We offer Ecotours to either around Makassar, to Kahyangan excursion island, Malino tropical forest, Bantimurung waterfall, Bira white sand beach, or Toraja cultural village with ancient catacomb and festivities. A selection of these Ecotours is free for volunteers depending on the length of your stay. During one week vacation given each month, you can explore other beautiful places in Indonesia such as Bali, Toraja, and Lombok. If applicable you will also be invited to traditional wedding ceremonies or family/neighborhood gatherings, as a means to experience Indonesia’s beautiful and fascinating culture.
LPTM needs to reach and communicate its activities to its target audiences, be they local students and high school or university alumni, volunteers from different countries, or potential partner organizations. In this internet era, a website is a good tool to communicate the target audiences, in addition to other promotional strategies on the internet. However, the institute does not have either sufficient expertise or sufficient resources to develop a website or build an IT system. We invite volunteers to give us consultation and to work together with us to develop a website and build an IT system even though with limited facilities. You will find the experience challenging and rewarding at the same time.
