Environmental education and community engagement program at beautiful Perhentian Islands, Malaysia

Teaching Green Education in Paradise

Often the people hurt most by environmental issues are the local communities of places you are fighting to save. So, educating and supporting these local communities in the ways of sustainable living and conservation is vital to make steps in the right direction. This happens through community tourism, interaction, and environmental education, whilst volunteers gain a first-hand experience of community life in a traditional Malaysian village surrounded by turquoise seas, white sands and vibrant marine life.

A Wide Range of Activities

A typical day of teaching green education in paradise might start with house or mural painting, eco snorkel briefings for tourists or conducting a beach clean. Also, it could involve lesson planning for 3 weekly school clubs. We are proud to say our school clubs are part of the 'Roots and Shoots' program by the famous Dr. Jane Goodall!

Help for all Ages

Teaching green education in paradise is not just for children. In 2012, we started the Perhentian Island Ladies Association (PILA) to engage local women in community tourism. This was done as part of our effort to help them to support themselves financially. The now-established PILA restaurant offers full-time employment to 6 previous house wives. With the opening of the restaurant, they are able to cook amazing food and share a major part of their culture with anyone willing to listen.

Volunteering for the Young and Old

If you are a family wanting to do something meaningful on your holiday, this project is perfect for you. The local school children love it when there are new children to play with!  Also for those who are only briefly on the island, we can arrange volunteering stays for a week or even shorter!
