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

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.

Programme Hightlights

  • School clubs - help educate the local primary school children and lead three school clubs per week (Jane Goodall's Roots and Shoots & Environmental clubs)
  • English lessons with island women
  • Community projects - help Perhentian Islands Ladies Association (PILA), beach clean ups, awareness campaigns, painting for the village and collaborate with the new project Precious Plastic and teach local people how to create eco-souvenirs from recycled plastic
  • Cultural immersion - experience traditional malaysian culture and food
  • Island village living - become one of the village people

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!
