“Empowering women from local communities.”

World Land Trust Summer 2019 Newsletter

Fanny’s Your Aunt (FYA), are supporting the World Land Trust “Plant a Tree” programme, raising funds to plant 20,000 trees along the Keruak Wildlife Corridor in Borneo. 

Led by a local community team of 10 women from the Sukau community of Kinabatangan, FYA are especially excited to help the World Land Trust with their partner, Hutan, in collaboration with the Genting Plantation, the Sabah State Government and the Sukau community to fulfil this conservation project.

“Very few women in the village have permanent jobs and Hutan is proud to offer them this opportunity. In addition to its 10 permanent staff, an internship programme offers up to 10 intern positions each month. The trainees learn the basics of tree planting and seedling maintenance techniques and participate in a year-long environmental education programme run by Hutan to raise awareness on the need to conserve natural habitat for wildlife.”
