You will be dubbed the king/queen of logs as you rule over your castle, the logs tent! You will handle all camp equipments and ensure that everything is in mint condition before, during, and after IW. Without you, there will be no tasks and no roofs over our heads to protect us from the wind and rain. Worried you will be stuck at the logs tent all the time? No worries, you can be a facilitator too!

Camp Chief

Coordinators
Ex-venturers, remember how your coordinators inspired and instilled the spirit of getting out there during your IW days? Well you will be doing the same this time, planting the seeds of R into their minds and inspiring them to get out of their comfort zone should you choose this role.

We are in dire need of a Friday set-up team! Your role is to head down to IW campsite in advance to set up the site. If you are eager to challenge your immense jungle craft and camping skills, please do join the team! If you’re only available on Friday and not for the weekends you are still welcome to join!

You get a taste of a little bit of everything as you will be taking up multiple different roles at all times. What better place to start your first IW staff experience then to join our campsite team?

Expedition 14J Changeover

No comments:
Last Friday our HCVs of 14J reached basecamp for their last changeover. The fatigue accumulated from the long travel back to basecamp vanished when they were reunited with friends they made in previous phases. The two days of changeover were spent resting, catching up, and getting ready for their final deployment on Sunday morning.

Here are where our HCVs are heading to for their final phase,

Casey, Charina and Diana is off to complete their adventure phase! 12 days of hard trek in Long Pasia followed by a well earned relaxing 7 days on the beautiful Mamutik Island to get their dive license!

Sara and Yan Chuan will be carrying out a Water, Sanitation, Health and Hygiene (WASH) programme in Long Pinasaat. They will be building a much needed gravity fed water system, toilets and also conduct sanitation and hygiene awareness lessons to the community there.

Austin will be spending three weeks in Maliau Basin continuing the important environmental work carried out by the previous two phases!

Uma will be working hard at Kampung Marang Parang to create a more resilient community by building a reading corner for a kindergarten and working with the locals to preserve the Rungus language.
