Dates & booking
Please note that there are religious holidays in Bali in early April, late June and early November 2017. There are also occasional festival days throughout the year which will affect school opening. 2018 religious and festival dates will be released in due course, and will likely cover similar date ranges. During these times alternative volunteering activities such as community and restoration work will be arranged instead of working with the children.
