We are located in the vibrant and beautiful city of Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo. It is a very international city with lots of restaurants and night life, along with a beautiful riverfront and lively downtown. Sarawak has beautiful national parks and adventures that you will be free to explore on your off days. Within 2 hours you can visit:
-Kubah National Park
-Bako National Park
-Semenggoh Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre
-Gunung Gading National Park
-Wind Caves Fairy Caves
-Sarawak Cultural Village
Because our world is changing we believe that in order to make a real and sustainable difference we need to diversify our approach to funding conservation and animal welfare work. We care for over 400 animals at Matang Wildlife Centre including orangutan, sun bears, macaques, and gibbons. These animals need our help, but so do the ones in the jungle whose habitat is quickly being destroyed. This is why we are committed to finding alternative fundraising ventures that can make a large impact on conservation on Borneo. We currently run two bars, a hotel & restaurant, green grocer, candle company and beach resort. As is the case with all of our fundraising businesses, 100% of Orangutan Project's share of the profits is used to further conservation and welfare work.
We have a very small team with lots of ideas how to make the world a better place, so we are looking for people who are self-motivated, independent, and willing to take initiative. Previous professional experience is a plus! Kuching is a very easy city to reside in, but living in a new city in a new country does have its challenges. Our ideal helpers are strong and self-sufficient in their personal and professional lives.
We offer accommodation and a weekly food stipend, as well as discounts at all of our businesses, including our bars, green grocer, hotel, restaurant and beach resort. In return, we want diligent workers looking to make a difference!
**We, Orangutan Project, are interested in a wide range of projects and activities, so helpers with varying skills sets are very welcome. Projects include candle making, plastic recycling, 3D printing, permaculture, farming, composting, building, welding, videography, photography, web design, and restaurant & bar management. If you have skills and are looking to help in other ways, drop us a line!**
