Borneo Jungle and Humanitarian Aid Expedition

Borneo Jungle and Humanitarian Aid Expedition

Duration: 2-3 weeks

An opportunity of a lifetime: your students can go to Borneo to complete a meaningful, sustainable and long lasting humanitarian aid project that will truly make a difference in people’s lives. Every service project we undertake is unique and is given to us by the local people who desperately need basic resources and help.

The students will also learn Jungle survival skills in the rainforest so that they can cope in difficult situations and be confident in themselves; then they will test these skills in a desert island survival setting on a small island off the north coast of Borneo.

They will also attempt to obtain their Padi Diver open water certificate in the most beautiful and best kept diving secret on the planet, giving them a new skill set and a formal qualification.

Amongst other things they will be educated to GCSE and A-Level standard Biology, Geography, PSHRE and other subjects. They will get to see the hustle and bustle of Kota Kinabalu, the Orang-utan sanctuary at Sepilok and relax on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
