Take a break from the hustle and bustle of life to enjoy the calm embrace of Mother Nature. It really does wonders for the stressed out soul.

Phase 3: Adventure Phase!
---
I'll miss the sight of the sun rays piercing through the trees at dawn while we wait for our water to boil over our self made campfire.
---
As Raleigh is a programme that mainly focuses on youth development, apart from serving communities and championing environmental projects, most of the youth development happens here: on trek.
---
My trek group (Shout-out to the tontolous HAHAHAHAH) who were supported by 3 guides, trekked through mountain ridges and jungle trails from Tambunan to Kiulu, with the distance spanning at almost 70km in total. We trekked for 16 days carrying kilos of personal stuff, food and group equipment.
---
Although trek has been cut short for me due to some unfortunate incidents, I've learned alot about myself in this phase. Being a day leader on trek has certainly made me more aware of the decisions that have to be made with the group, especially in an environment like the jungle. The guides were so friendly (sesi mesyuarat hehe) and helpful. Ken, Giant, Zino, and Henry, thank you for being such awesome guides! You guys are legends.
---
Most importantly I want to say thank you to the team for being such awesome teammates. Your laughters and jokes were what made our walking days less painful and tiring. In Theresie's words, we are strong!
---
Trek made me realise how beautiful Sabah is and how spending time in the arms of mother nature puts things into perspective; we don't need much to live comfortably and happily :)

Special thanks to @raleighinternational and @raleigh_borneo for running an insightful communications workshop for the national societies in Malaysia. Always great to have everyone together brainstorming for new ideas. 💚 #Raleigh #RaleighInternational #RaleighBorneo #RaleighKualaLumpur #RaleighSabahSociety #workshop #communications #youth #sustainability

Phase 2: Installing pipes and raising awareness on sanitation in Kampung Mempakad
---
One of my volunteer friends, Will, took this photo. I think it perfectly captures our joy and relief when it was finally raining because that means it was one of our rare days of taking a shower apart from the assigned 1 bucket shower every 5 days.
---
Kampung Mempakad is a village in Pitas, Sabah where a few weeks ago, had no access to clean water who gets their water source by purchasing gallons of water or going miles to get water from a river. Raleigh's aim is to ensure that apart from having a clean water source by installing pipes in their villages, but to also ensure that the project was a sustainable one by helping the community develop a committee to maintain the pipes long after Raleigh leaves the village.
---
Apart from that, we've also carried out a WASH (wash and sanitation hygiene) programme that was mainly targeted at kids to instill proper hand hygiene habits among them to reduce the spread of illnesses because of unclean hands.
---
My time in Mempakad was a great one where apart from the awesome team, the villagers were also really welcoming and sociable (we had Zumba dances and traditional dances with the villagers on some days), and the kids were really... active. XD Harap kita boleh bertemu lagi bah pada masa yang akan datang :)

It’s official!
