I'll be staying in Jakarta for 2 months and would like to do some kind of volunteering whilst there. Where to look for volunteer work opportunities in Jakarta?

Sorry to have to disappoint you, Pimpam, but you'll need a work permit if you want to work - yes, also as a volunteer. You can ignore the regulations, but, according to rumour, there are a few civil servants in this country who think their salaries are not high enough.

You are not allowed to work, even volunteering is work, so you have to spend your time in another way, which should be no problem in Jakarta and it's surrounding areas.

Hi pimpam,
What are you actually in Jakarta for? Just staying with friends or will you be working?

If you have a lot of money, otherwise it's the worst place to be in RI. Coming there already for more then 3 decades but I cannot understand anymore that people are spending their holiday overthere. unless you like part-party and disco ......then it is the place to go.

That is dissapointing to hear :( The work permit for Indonesia is quite a challenge from what I've come to understand. My friend has spend over 6 months getting one.
And yeah Ill just be visiting friends. Will be fun but I would have enjoyed doing something useful besides karaoke and eat, eat, eat Emoticon: Smile

If you have a proper sponsor (at least PT company) and you meet all demands set by the immigration office and the Office of Manpower, your KITAS and working permit should be ready in less than one month (not counting national holidays)

If you are looking for something to do, you should go outside. Enough to see in and around Jakarta if you ask me, just depends what you are looking for. Emoticon: Nice

Pimpan,
obviously it is not allowed to work as a volunteer without permit. There is a certainly some risk. When I think of the risk to use an "ojek" in the center of Jakarta I suppose the first kind of risk is relatively small.
I took both risks and sometimes went by ojek to my volunteer work. I gave English conversation at several catholic schools in and outside Jakarta. And I enjoyed it very much. There was no pay, but I was greatly rewarded by the enthousiasm of my 14 and 15 year old students.
I am not a teacher at all, I am not even English. But teachers in the street asked me to join them to their school for conversation lessons. I cannot advise you though how to meet the right teachers
