Volunteer project in Borneo – 2010

Isobel Jackson, a teenager from Tavistock, Devon, is joining a project in Borneo for three weeks in July 2011. Isobel will visit Sabah and Sepilok, where she will learn jungle survival techniques, and then visit Sepilok orang-utan sanctuary. She will also be teaching English and doing a once-in-a-lifetime project helping one of the most endangered bears in the world - the Sun Bear - by rehabilitating them back into the wild, renewing their living areas by building pens and improving their surrounding environment.  She will also spend time at a local primary school, to donate books and teach children some English.

But Isobel said “My biggest challenge in Borneo will be the two day climb up Asia's highest mountain . . . Mt Kinabalu. I suffer from arthritis and of course, life can be hard sometimes but climbing this mountain will show arthritis suffers and others alike that a disability, illness or other personal obstruction will not stop you from reaching your dreams!

Isobel added "This grant will help so much, and I will use it to enable me to get to where I have dreamed of going most of my life."
