THE GREEN LION
Renovation and Construction projects support the village community centers such as village schools, village playgrounds, public libraries etc. We will make a difference for the local villages and also the children by supporting them to have better living conditions. Construction of authentic longhouse is to revive the culture of the community. We plan to build some longhouses according to the original design and materials used to build long-houses as in the olden days. You will partake in the construction of long-houses, a practice that is rapidly becoming popular in Malaysia as the insulating qualities of clay generate a cool temperature to live in. Besides this, the ecological way of building contributes to a healthy lifestyle and environment. Traditional construction methods passed down by many generations of Malaysian people will be used. Anyone is welcome to join as even unskilled people can contribute to the building process through the production of materials for the long-houses. Not only are long-houses fun to build but you will also leave with brand new skills!

Sarawak makes access to Borneo’s natural wonders and cultural riches a breeze. Kuching, the capital of Sarawak, is simply unique. No other city in Malaysia has such a romantic and unlikely history, nor displays its charms with such an easy grace. Kuching goes about its own business in a relaxed manner that hasn’t changed in 160 years.
