Project Managers arrive in Borneo - Tuesday 19th January 2010

Field Base has got very busy today with the arrival of twenty Project Managers this morning, taking the number of people in the house to thirty. 

 All field based staff go through a two week induction period of training and preparation. Over the next fortnight we will learn how to survive in the jungle and also prepare all the project sites for the arrival of 130 venturers in two weeks time.

This year Raleigh is running nine different projects. All project managers are allocated one of these which they will visit to check out the site, create contigency plans and draft project aims. 

In two days time all of us will be leaving fieldbase to go to the riverside Traverse Activity Centre (TAC)  where we will learn how to survive in the jungle, one of the harshest environments on the planet.
