THE GREEN LION
The children at the kindergarten are about 4 to 5 years old. They will all be excited to new participants, and exceptionally welcoming, partly due to the natural and genuine friendliness of all Balinese, especially children, but also due to the fact that they have not met many westerners. By assisting the local staff, participants will increase the confidence of the children and teach them better English which will help them in so many ways in the future. The kindergarten project, like kindergartens throughout the world is informal, and the children will want to play, more than be ‘taught’ in a formal sense. This program demands that you love children and understand their behavior, as you will be surrounded with loads of them every day and their friendliness can sometimes become over exuberant, but they are children after all. However, simply by getting them enthused about coming to school and giving them some very basic English phrases such as simple greetings, you may well have sown the seeds of a lifelong learning habit and doing a great and enjoyable job in the process.
About the Accommodation You will be accommodated in one of our houses in the village of Tukadmunga. Located on the street leading to the beach 5 minute by walk. Village life is quintessentially local and you will get a good chance to see typical Balinese life – roosters crowing and all! For couples or those wanting more privacy, there are upgrade accommodation options available for an additional cost per week. Please contact us in advance to check for the possibility for that program period. Food Arrangements Indonesian food is tasty and diverse and you can expect to experience a myriad of flavors and meals during their stay. Typical dishes included mie goreng (fried noodles and vegetables), nasi goreng (fried rice and vegetables) or gado gado (mixed vegetables with a satay sauce). For those who do not eat meat, Indonesian cooking uses a lot of tofu and tempeh (soy beans), we also provide for some of western dishes. Breakfasts are varied and include pancakes, fresh fruit, toast etc.
Lovina is a relatively new name coined in the 1950s by the late king of Buleleng (Buleleng Regency) Anak Agung Panji Tisna, with a good eye for future tourism-based development. It started with small lodge built on his own land and named Lovina. After going through struggle of ups and downs, finally the community accepted the presence of Lovina. Nowadays the name Lovina is used for the stretch of seven traditional villages, which all slightly merge into one over ten kilometers off the main road which hugs the north coast to the west of Singaraja: Temukus, Kalibukbuk, Anturan, Pemaron, Tukad Mungga, Banyualit and Kaliasem. Kalibukbuk is the main hub of this area and is often thought of "Lovina town centre".
