WHAT WE DO
PROJECTS WE SUPPORT
There are many projects across the Gili Islands that we are pleased to be able to support. We do not have the resources to manage everything ourselves so we are happy to support individuals who do their bit to make the islands better for all.
Caring for the welfare of cats on the islands through free volunteer vet clinics and a TNR programme to help manage the population of stray cats. Also providing food for stray cats during times of crisis.
We’ve been proud partners of Pak Suparman and his Treevolution campaign for 2 years now. The main mission: to regreen Gili. Ever since the island became a tourist hotspot around two decades ago, the island has been sold off to developers, and slowly but surely all the tres have been cut down to make room for high rise, concrete-filled hotels.
FRIDAY BEACH CLEAN UPS
If you’re heading to Gili T over the weekend you can join our weekly community beach clean, where locals, divers and holiday makers get together to clean up the beaches to enjoy a plastic free paradise (and a free Bintang!)
GILI STRONG TRIATHLON
The annual Race-for-Waste where ametuer, wannabe and serious athletes get together to compete in our triathlon fundraiser. Will you be a part of the swim-bike-run race around Gili Trawangan or one of the many loud spectators of this yearly event.
REFILL YOUR BOTTLE
We have established a network of more than 100 safe water refill stations to reduce the need for single-use plastic water bottles. Download the app on your way to the island, and choose the closest place to refill your water for free or cheaper than buying plastic and contributing to the waste.

Our sustainable future starts today With his ever impeccable timing, Suparman succeeded to hold another fun-filled morning at Suparman Pizza and nursery. Monday 17th August was Indonesia’s 75th year of Independence. This was the perfect opportunity to promote green...
Gili Trawangan has been stuck inside an island lockdown for almost 3 months now. No one allowed to enter and if you leave, you cannot return. After the initial few weeks, these strict measures meant that if islanders are sensible and social distancing, we can kind of...
Caring for our islands to make them better for all.
When visitors come to the island they see the challenges we face on Gili Trawangan in trying to protect the ecology of our landscape. We won’t lie, it is really hard work and we have a long way to go, but by getting involved and helping to spread the word, we can make a difference together.
