The Amisewaka Desa Les Community Center in the village of Desa Les is dedicated to delivering vocational and life skills training to young people in Bali and surroundings.

AMISEWAKA - DESA LES COMMUNITY CENTER

The center will boast ten classrooms, and we will initially aim to deliver 480 training hours a day to 100 students, and conduct training in the kitchen and restaurant. The size of the classes will depend on the lessons taught; this can range from four students in a baking class to up to 20 in an English class.

We intend to provide young people aged 17 through 23 with education and skill set to boost confidence which will help them gain access to employment in leading hotels and restaurants across Indonesia and elsewhere. Other than the mandatory topics, the curriculum will include well-rounded subjects including English language, basic accounting, business skills, and entrepreneurship. Upon completing the program, students can pursue working for someone else in an organization or establish their own business. The students will be provided free of charge with one plant based protein meal per day to ensure that they are getting enough protein.

HOLISTIC APPROACH TO TEACHING

For the courses we offer we have opted for an overall holistic approach that provides skills for gainful employment and raises student’s awareness.

At Amisewaka – Desa Les Community center we aim to transform the lives of young Indonesians and to provide them with skills to gainful employment. This will include raising their overall awareness with tools that they can use both professionally and in their personal environment. An education that rolls over to the respective communities. You can be part of our endeavors.

SUSTAINABLE AND ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY

The center’s structure is built based on three pillars: form, function, and eco-friendliness. It has a specially designed Wantilan-style roof allowing it to appropriately blend with the local architectural style, and at the same time enhancing ventilation, and leverage natural light. Also, solar panels, use of local materials, and wastewater gardens allow for the building to be as “green” as is economically feasible.

From the building to its various systems of waste, drinking water, clean water, greywater, and energy management, and total recycling, visible explanations will promote the center’s exemplarity style to educate, inform, and add value to people within and outside of its premises.
