Project Details


  • Project Description:

    On a small island in Southeast Asia, a community of Christian farmers are trying to resurrect their village which was destroyed forty years ago by a giant wave. Your partnership with One Island will provide food for needy families as they re-establish their farms, open a community library, and establish an eco-tourism-and-agricultural training center.

    Eco-tourism capitalizes on the tremendous natural beauty of the land and sea surrounding the village. An agriculture “Impact Center” runs a milk goat farm and agriculture business to boost the local economy. Some farmers have committed to taking the eco-tourism/agriculture combination and open Impact Centers and share the gospel in struggling villages on five other islands. Give today to help these farmers escape poverty and secure the land for their future and their families.

  • Cultural Information:

    This is historically a majority Christian village, but is surrounded by a Muslim area with a variety of Islamic belief.There is also a predominately Hindu village nearby. Men should wear tasteful short sleeve shirts, and women at least three-quarter length shirts.  It is best for volunteers to wear long pants. Visitors should also bring a swimsuit and shorts. The weather is hot. There is much walking on roads, in the jungle and riding on the back of motorcycles, so you should dress appropriately. Be prepared to eat a lot of rice and fresh fish.

  • Geographic Information:

    This area is made up of eleven major inhabited islands and several smaller islands, many of which are uninhabited. This island is one of the larger ones, and has many villages on it. The farm is a half hour away from a larger city, but when on the smaller islands you will be a few hours away by boat.  There are hills and caves and the surrounding ocean is full of life, which can be viewed by diving, snorkeling, or when cliff jumping into the ocean. Upon initial entry, and prior to departure, some time will be spent in a larger city.
