Giving back during holidays through voluntourism

Voluntourists can be involved in meeting the needs of people, wildlife or the environment in the communities that they visit.

Jonathan Teoh had the adventure of a lifetime when he joined a group of outdoor enthusiasts in Sarawak five years ago.

Being in nature was something the 28-year-old risk consultant from Petaling Jaya, Selangor truly appreciated. But the highlight of his holiday was actually participating in a community project to build a dam for the indigenous community at Kampung Muk Ayun in Padawan.
