A new community tourism project set in a Rungus tribal village near Kudat at the very Tip of Borneo.
Next to the village is a stunning beach where turtles on a few days per year come and nest. A new turtle hatchery has been opened and the village is now beginning to take visitors as part of its new community tourism program. Visitors can participate in beach clean ups and turtle patrols, mountain biking, jungle treks, cultural immersion programs.

As volunteers will be fed by the local families and the new community tourism program is not yet a business a daily fee is required to cover the costs of food and lodging.
This fee is 40 Malaysian ringgit per day per person which you pay directly to your family or local host. This is to cover costs of 3 meals and a small conservation fee that funds turtle patrols.

In developing countries (Where most hosts are involved in charity work or community development) some of our hosts may ask for a small donation to help the host family or charity (often less then 5 dollars per day) Workaway will allow this listing when the donation goes directly to the family or charity and is just to cover the cost of the volunteer‘s stay. (This will be clearly marked on the host listing).
We will strictly not allow listings posted by agents, “middle men” or projects who we feel are looking to profit from a volunteers stay.
