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.

As we roll on into another Plastic Free July, we wanted to create a check list of easy budget swaps and alternatives you can use in the kitchen that are not only plastic waste free, but also offer an eco-friendly alternative to...
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.
