This project is undertaken in areas of protected forest surrounding the Kinabatangan River, East Sabah, Malaysia.
We are located in Lot 6 and have always maintained a positive working relationship with our neighboring community in the village of Batu Puteh. The village supports a local co-operative who are our partners in this long-term project. The co-op provides the supervision and labour to clear, plant and maintain each site. To date this project provides a source of employment for over 15 men and women, where all adopted rates of pay are gender equal and compliant to Malaysia’s Minimum Wage Order.
Our long-term goal is to see this number increase to a minimum of 30 people and introduce additional training and development opportunities for the workforce and local community.
