For International and National Students

Our internship program is intended to be of mutual benefit to both the Foundation and the intern. We request participants to propose a project of interest that aligns with the values of Jiwa Damai and the Lagu Damai Foundation, as well as with the learning goals of the intern. 

The fields can be bio-argriculture, permaculture (including construction, sustainable energy, fish and pond maintenance, etc), psychology, marketing, hospitality, alternative health care, environmental research and much more. The actual application of the project in a practical setting is an important part of the internship. 

Usually this setting is at JiwaDamai agro-permaculture and retreat center located just twenty minutes outside of Ubud in the district of Mambal. The lush surroundings of the retreat center include a diverse array of Flora and Fauna that make it an ideal enviornment for students to be exposed to many different learning opportunities. The cross cultural interaction and tropical climate will give an extra dimension to any internship undertaken with us. Students will have access to local and/or international experts in their respective fields. 

We will accept students at various levels of education, but they should have some basic knowledge in their field and be open to exploring this in a very different setting, while advancing their current knowledge.

Please note that students will be responsible for arranging credits with the appropriate representative from their university; however, a certificate of completion will be issued and the student will provide a final report as a means of documentation to facilitate this process. 

 An internship can be arranged from one month to six months, depending on the project topic. Longer placements may be considered.
