Paradise found: internship in West Papua
What about Papua (formerly known as Irian Jaya or Dutch New Guinea) would not intrigue? The diversity in lifestyle and culture of the indigenous people, where more than 250 languages is spoken, is matched only by Island's biodiversity and geography. The terrain covering half of New Guinea, the planet’s second-largest island, ranges from the misty peak of Puncak Jaya (5050m) – which features permanent snowfields (yes, it is still Indonesia!) and small glaciers – to the steamy island groups of Biak and Raja Ampat, just shy of the equator. Endemic wildlife gracing this vast expanse of jungle, mountain, swamp and sea include such weird and wonderful creatures as cassowaries, dugongs, showy cenderawasih (birds of paradise), egg-laying echidnas and tree-dwelling monitor lizards.
Does that sound inspiring and exciting enough for you? Internship-Indonesia is now proud to offer internship on the exotic island of Papua. With an local elementary school being the hosting organization, we are looking for adventurous candidates intersted in enhancing English level of the locals, boosting their marketing and promotional efforts and making the faraway mystical lands of Europe, America etc, little bit more closer by sharing about the cultural differences and international subjects.
Accommodation and a very reasonable living expenses fee coverage and an opportunity to live a 10/10 on the amazingness scale adventure is included :)
