After much anticipation, this week phase one allocations are finally in! Deployment day involved an early start on Saturday morning which saw everyone up at 5.30am to load their coaches with kit, food and personal belongs before setting off to project sites across Sabah. We caught up with a few venturers to see how they are feeling about phase one.

This week saw our Project Manager Teams for Phase One visit each of their respective project sites to conduct a Project Planning Visit (PPV). These initial visits allow them to meet with project partners and the local communities to build relationships and plan in preparation for the venturers’ arrival.
