Why Choose This Project?
Our Eco education volunteer project is perfect for people looking to get involved in teaching and eco-education. Moreover, this is a perfect volunteering project for families looking for a cultural experience where both adults and children can learn from each other. You and your children can get involved as much as you want or sit back and relax a bit. We can also provide private accommodation at an extra cost if required. If you want to talk to other families who have volunteered with this project please feel free to ask.
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.
