We’re taking part in Australia’s Biggest Giving Circle that’s giving away $30,000 to 50+ Charities in 2017 with thanks to UBank, Australia’s online-only bank.

The next prize draw is June 30th and $5,500 will be shared between the 10 Charities with the most votes. We’d love it if you could click on any of the links and vote for us.

It only takes a moment and will really help our cause, plus if you choose to make a donation to us when you vote we’ll get an extra vote for every $ you give!

The Mentawai Islands is one of the most consistent surf destinations in the world. Our founding company, The Perfect Wave Surf Experience, represent many quality surf charters and surf resorts/lodges in this area and send hundreds of happy surfers here every season. All of these operators seek to employ local Mentawai people provided they have the qualifications, with strong English Language being one of the major skills required.

As requested by the local community, the Education and Conservation Centre offer English classes which is particularly popular with the younger generation. With population growth, development of the region and the predicted increase of tourism coming to the islands, we are providing these remote communities with valuable access to English skills offering them an opportunity to develop sustainable initiatives.

We are also educating them on the importance of recycling and waste management via our Environmental Programme. The main objective of this program is to reduce plastic waste being dumped and polluting the environment, the air and the ocean by encouraging and educating community members to manage their household rubbish.
