Come with an idea, leave with a business
For many of us, Ubud isn’t just a gorgeous travel destination—it’s home. Our Cogiving program is how we create meaningful interactions + experiences with local businesses, the Balinese community, and each other. Participants chose to go beyond being a “digital nomad” and step into the dynamic role of interconnected team member—whether their stay is short or lasting.

Each project gets its own unique team of collaborators who craft a plan to work with a local organization or business. Employing cultural sensitivity and mindfulness, the team actively listens to the recipients’ goals and hopes. Throughout the project, friendships and camaraderie are built with all involved. Structures are erected, plans are executed, and smiles are had by all.
In Cogiving projects, team members share their expertise and empower others to learn new skills. By the end of the project, everyone has gained new awareness and empowerment for their professional experience.
Bali is a deeply transformative place, and there’s no shortage of generosity, playfulness, or graciousness amongst the Balinese. Hubudians come together to bring their strengths towards finding sustainable solutions for the businesses that keep the economy strong and the culture thriving.
No matter where you are in the world, community support always helps local businesses to thrive. Our mission is to keep connecting the people who feel passionate about community contribution with the projects that stand to benefit most from this unique collaboration. When international minds come together to contribute locally, magic happens.
