Why we do it

Our Borneo programmes operate from Sabah, in the north of the island of Borneo, where many people live below the poverty line. Our projects here focus on building strong, resilient communities; providing access to safe water and sanitation and protecting the incredible biodiversity in the area. Project activities will vary depending on what’s most needed but in Borneo, this might include supporting rural communities to improve their lives by providing access to clean water or community learning centres, or you might work in the oldest rainforests in the world to help protect some of the world’s rarest and most diverse species.

We have been running our expedition programme in Raleigh Borneo for over 12 years, giving young people an experience of sustainable development work, as well as life and leadership skills that they carry with them throughout their lifetime
