"All in all I thought the Raleigh International expedition was a success. I felt it was educational, entertaining, interesting, and most of all fulfilling. We learned, taught laughed, cried, in a gorgeous country where the people are reminiscent of Bermudians. We achieved a feat many Bermudians have yet to even dream of, we completed an expedition in Malaysia."

" This expedition was great and maturing experience. You couldn't come back to Bermuda the same person. It teaches you how to deal with difficult situations."


- Erin Butterfield

 

 

"This was one of the hardest life- changing experiences I have ever seen Bermudians undertake. For myself, it was a step backwards in time to the 60's when Bermudians worked together. The saying "it takes a village to raise a child" came to mind - that's what I remember about Bermuda when I was young and that's what I saw in the village in Borneo where I worked for 3 months."


- Brendan Millett- our Staff Volunteer

 

 

"I spent the first phase of the expedition at Kg Saguan. At first I thought, this is just like on TV. The children came in so close but were scared to say hi or shake your hand. But once I had settled in, I was playing with the children every day. The kids have made an impact on my life. The families there treated me as if I was a member of their family. I have never been so excited to be with people from another nationality. They taught me their traditional ways and how to speak Malay and I helped them to learn more English. I hated to leave Saguan and was emotional when I left. I miss them so much and have made a promise to them that I will be coming back to see them"

“Not only is Raleigh Bermuda a journey of personal development, it is a journey of community and understanding. I've completed two expeditions and worked with Raleigh Bermuda for the past five years. I've worked with many people who have wanted the betterment for themselves and others, there comes a point in time where you have to hop up off your seat and realize you have the potential to change the world.” Jawonday
