Volunteering at MESCOT How to Get InvolvedKinabatangan, Sabah, Malaysian BorneoWhat KOPEL-MESCOT mostly requires of volunteers is to HELP and SUPPORT what ever activities are most needed at the time of visit. This can vary throughout the year depending on the season and work taking place in the program. Although we are happy to arrange a special volunteer program that suits our needs and the special skills of a volunteer, we mostly simply require additional hands to help on day-to-day tasks as well as special tasks which require lots of man-power. Work will invariably be either "community development focused" or "conservation focused" and occasionally "organisation focused", for example training programs. The easy way to get involved in KOPEL-MESCOT's Volunteer Initiatives is to contact one of our Partner Organisations such as Global Vision International(GVI). These organisations arrange volunteer groups to support community and conservation work at MESCOT. There are some key advantages of working with our Partner Organisations. Firstly they can help with many other practical arrangements such as flights (to- from home country), visas, medical and other practical requirements. The programs of these partner organisations usually involve some pre-arrival briefings and training and can answer lots of questions volunteers might have regarding the project; practicalities of working with us. Our partner organisations make all the necessary logistical and practical how to get there arrangements for you! Because these partner organisations arrange groups, it can be a lot less worry some and a lot more fun to travel and get involved with a group of volunteers rather than individually. Alternatively contact us for more details in how to get involved directly.
