Project Highlights

About the Project

The Perhentian Eco Education Volunteer Project focuses to teach and support the islanders to care for their splendid environment whilst also offering volunteers a first-hand experience of community life in a traditional Malaysian village surrounded by turquoise seas, white sands and vibrant marine life. 

The Perhentian Islands are at a vital time with tourism increasing each year. Although this has significantly improved the livelihoods of the local community, it has also led to negative consequences that arise with irresponsible and unsustainable tourism. That is why our project functions to inform, educate and encourage the locals, young and old, to practice community-led tourism and sustainable living. Learn more about the project and its impacts in 2019.

Our family of four enjoyed our Fuze Ecoteer volunteering week very much. We spent time with kids of the village on Perhentian Kecil and together with them we made signs for small local businesses, planted various plants and vegetables, taught English classes, made eco crafts, did beach cleanups meanwhile fully involved in the life of the local community. Truly a wonderful experience! - Elvira
It was really amazing to see Fuze Ecoteer's impact on the lives of people living in the village, including bringing up the younger generation to continue contributing to the cause. Overall, I had such a great time during this project. It really is a unique, interesting experience that I’m glad I was able to be a part of. - Debbie Lim

I had a really great week at Ecoteer House. It is a really unique experience, living in the village and being able to learn about the culture. I really enjoyed Malay dinner where we went to a local's house and ate with them and their family. Although I was the first and only volunteer, all of the interns were really friendly and welcoming so I still had a really fun time. The islands are absolutely stunning, the corals were beautiful and I saw 3 turtles! The accommodation was nice, particularly because o had volunteer house to myself, and the food was always really yummy. It is a very chilled project and a lot of the time I spent just relaxing. - Sophie
We went there as a family last year; my kids were then 12yo, 9yo and 4yo. They had a blast! Learning about the ocean and sea creatures, conversing with the locals and Ecoteer staff and volunteers, and enjoying each other's company as our own family unit. We were amazed at how much they learnt and grown without being in school (they missed school for about a week or so). Accommodation and food were excellent too. Perhentian has a lot to offer; the immense beauty under the sea, white powdery beaches and cool waves, the authentic local scene with friendly villagers and yummy food, to top it all, excellent Ecoteer team coupled with great activities! - Shariza
