Meet Zakhira 👋. She’s a student from Perlis who signed up for Raleigh to help people in the rural communities in Malaysian Borneo. We asked: how did being on Raleigh affect you? “It was a massive culture shock, hard and challenging but fun and worth it. I would do it all over again. At home I try to volunteer in kitchens, but I feel like after the Raleigh experience, the best way to make a change is for you to do something about it instead of maintaining the things you’ve been doing all along. So I am definitely going to try to do more about raising awareness.”

2.1 billion people around the world live without access to safe drinking water at home. In Sabah, 59% of people in rural communities do not have access to a reliable source of clean and safe water; affecting their health, education and livelihoods. This expedition we will be working with two communities in rural areas to build infrastructure to allow access to safe, clean and reliable water. .

Meet Narmi. She is 13 years old and lives in Kampung Tikalod, the site of one of our water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) projects. Before the Raleigh Borneo project the community members had no access to sanitation facilities such as toilets and hand washing stations. After the spring project, the community now have access to three toilets and three hand washing stations. Our volunteers ran sessions with the children in the village about effective hand washing including techniques and critical times to wash hands. .

Spotted at Danum Valley!
Summer expedition natural resource management project: Danum Valley.
Named one of the most biodiverse places on the planet, Danum Valley is 438 square kilometres of 140-million-year-old tropical rainforest. The conservation area is home to a number of iconic Bornean species including orangutans, pygmy elephants and the clouded leopard.
Raleigh Borneo has been assisting with work in Danum Valley since 2011 to aid the progress towards achieving UNESCO World Heritage Site Status. Alongside our project partners, Yayasan Sabah, and the Danum Valley Field Centre staff work on the suspension bridge will be completed in this final expedition.
Find out more about the summer projects in the latest blog (link in profile) .

Summer expedition community water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) project: Kampung Tikalod.
Raleigh Borneo is returning to Kampung Tikalod to continue the work of the spring expedition. Deputy Operations Manager Laura explains, “It is really important to Raleigh that all of our projects are sustainable. This was a project that we started last expedition. We constructed three toilets and built two large rainwater collection systems. The project scope also included building a gravity fed water system with ram pump technology to ensure the tanks were fill even in times of drought. The system involves gravity pulling the water down and then a device pushing the water back up again. It is our commitment to go back in and finish the work of completing the gravity fed water system.” Read more about our summer expedition projects on our blog (link in profile). .
