Dols to Maranggoi Pinolobu

We had the privilege to accompany our patron Mr. & Mrs. Dols to visit and experience the richness of Kampung Pinolobu! Being one of the firsts to support our initiative in community conservation, they finally got to check out our conservation effort of Maranggoi River Reserve, under the united community initiative of Koperasi Pinolobu.

Special thanks to Risin, Jalni, and friends for staying true with our cause, and for making this trip a fun and fulfilling one!
