9 Huts on a Hill Aerial View from behind

Hi dear volunteers!

Since we are an eco-resort, we want to protect our mother earth and live a more sustainable life. The message we want to bring to our customers is: Live a simple life and respect your environment!

Therefore, we host volunteers for accommodation (a private room in an authentic Runggus Borneo Longhouse), food and some pocket money. We would like to consider your personal abilities. Whatever you're good at, you can help us in that specific field. Do you enjoy using your hands? Perfect, then you can help us with building new eco-houses. You have a green thumb? Nice, so you can do some gardening in our organic garden to provide our own raw food. If you like cooking, you can prepare healthy and eco-friendly dishes in the kitchen and learn from our chef. Furthermore, we are about to save the marine life and would greatly appreciate any skills in coral replanting or marine conservation. Of course, we are always happy to have people with administrative or marketing/social media abilities to spread our message all around the world. Also, if you have any other skills to share, we are very open to those as well.

Do you feel addressed? Is this exactly what you are looking for?

Great! Get in contact with us, and we'll be more than happy to have you here in Kudat!
