Are u ready for the Next I-DO ?
Indonesia Volunteer program is on its second year. The 1st volunteer took place 15 July -29 July 2010 which 12 volunteers from NCTU held a camp in Bukit Lawang, Indonesia. The name of the camp is I-DO CAMP which merges Information , Digital and Orangutan . We hope to empower the local community to use technology to further ecotourism. Sustainable tourism is crucial to the wellbeing of the local ecosystem and community, providing an alternative to unsustainable logging and palm oil plantations.

The first Indonesian Volunteer program ran successful under the collaboration of BCUA , OIC and NCTU. Meanwhile The second volunteer program to Indonesia is mainly focus on ecotourism promotion , renewable energy program , community empowerment . It's particularly important in Bukit Lawang because many of Sumatra’s critically endangered orangutans live here, including some that have been rehabilitated and returned to the wild. The park forms part of Gunung Leuser National Park, recognized by UNESCO as a biosphere reserve and World Heritage Site, which holds the dubious nickname of “Last Stand of the Orangutan.”
