Prambanan temple compounds is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Indonesia which is one of the largest temple compounds in Southeast Asia. It was built in the 9th century dedicated to the three great Hindu divinities (Shiva, Wishnu and Brahma). The Prambanan temple compounds consist of Prambanan temple (also called Loro Jonggrang), Sewu temple, Bubrah temple and Lumbung temple with a total of about 240 temples. The temples were damaged by the earthquake in 2006 and volcano ashes from Kelud mountain eruption in 2014.

In collaboration with Central Java Archeological Site Management, volunteers from all over the world will come together to help to preserve and restore the temple. We will conduct a heritage project in Plaosan Temple which also belongs to Prambanan temple compounds. The volunteers will be introduced to the World Heritage Centre's activities and campaign, as well as the history and dynamics of World Heritage sites worldwide. The Heritage Centre renders a symbolic dimension to heritage through debates and reflections, contributes to the restoration and preservation of cultural heritage, and improves accessibility and availability of information. The Centre also raises the awareness of the local population by creating a sense of ownership and identification. It also promotes cultural heritage among international volunteers and organizations.

Bali, also known as the island of gods, is a wonderful place with rich culture and nature. Many people from around the world travel to Bali to see the beautiful nature and to learn about its fascinating culture, traditional dance and music. The nature itself is amazing with the rainforest and the terraced rice paddies with the special irrigation system called Subak as intangible UNESCO world heritage. The volunteers will be introduced to the local knowledge in protecting and conserving the local culture and nature.

In the first week, the volunteers will be involved in restoration work at Plaosan temple. They will have a one-day orientation about how to do the restoration and information about the history of the temple, so that they can learn about the temples and the restoration process. As the volunteers live in the local community of Bugisan village, they will also have activities in the school with the local students. They will promote the preservation of the temples among the students and will organize some activities like teaching, playing games, cultural exchange, etc. The volunteers will also campaign about world heritage preservation among the local community and visitors to the world heritage site and especially the Prambanan temple compounds.

On day 8th, the volunteers will move to Bali by airplane to take part in cultural activities in Ubud. They will get introduction about the traditions and culture of Ubud and Bali in general. In the village, the participants will interact with local people, will learn and practice local traditions and customs, and will support the local people in their work to protect and conserve the local culture. To complete the cultural activity and learning part of the program, the volunteers will have cooking exchange as a way to learn about the different cultures represented in the group.
