Welcome Bukit Lawang Trust Alumni!
The journey doesn't end here!
We pride ourselves in being a grassroots charity, and we see our volunteers as our family! That's why our placements don't end when you leave Indonesia!

Because we're a big family here at the Bukit Lawang Trust, our volunteers do eventually leave us .. booo! but we never leave them!

Including our brand new 'Jungle Cam' catch up with ex colleagues and students in scheduled group video calls and support current volunteers plan and organise their Help @ Home projects!
Help @ home
Here at the Bukit Lawang Trust, we believe in doing good, not because it looks good, or because we want reward. But because it's the right thing to do.
The Corona Virus pandemic has shown us that no matter where you are from in the world, things can change very quickly, and you never know when you will need help.
That's what Help @ Home is all about.
From January 2020, everyone who volunteers with the Bukit Lawang Trust on any of our placements or internships will take part in our Help @ Home movement at the end of the program.
HELP @ HOME:
The Help @ Home project is all about carrying on the good work that you have been doing throughout your placement with us after you return home.
First identify a problem or issue in our home community, and then using everything you learnt in your placement, and with the support of an extensive Alumni Network and support staff at the Trust, come up with a way to help or solve the problem. This is Help @ Home.
HELP FROM HOME:
We appreciate that some of our volunteers have busy lives outside of their time with us, and that's fine! Another option for volunteers is to do a Help From Home project to raise awareness and funds for the Bukit Lawang Trust.
This could be in the form of a Sponsored car wash, a Pub Quiz or an online fundraiser.
Whichever you decide to do, we will be here to support you every step of the way!
