Good news! We are happy with the experiences of conducting English Camp in the past but always rejected many who were interested due to location and capacity. This year, the English Camp will not only happen in Pekalongan, but also in different cities in Indonesia. Get update from our calendar of event for details. You want to create a unique English Camp experience with us? Contact us here. Watch past English Camp in YouTube of GREAT Indonesia here.
Today a reader, tomorrow a leader
We receive used and new books to be donated to local children libraries run by our local volunteers. Send your books to our headquarter in Semarang or to our local volunteers houses in Bandung and Pekalongan. The children are craving for fun and knowledge from reading them.

“It is first time when I joined volunteer project. I knew that it will be interesting. In real life it was even more interesting than I could expect. During the project I saw real Indonesia and it is better way to explore, because in the project you are working together with many people, local and not only, and you can see many things which you will never see if you are just tourists… Also found many new friends, from Indonesia and other countries. Specially organization GREAT is really correct, professional, and helpful. For future volunteers can suggest to join projects of GREAT. And have a fun there! :)”
