Even though most of us have been passive in the past, what we have come to know is that now is the time to take action. We must take care and treat the health of our natural environment like the gift that it is. We must maintain it properly, so that it will continue to be a benefit for generations to come.
This program relies on our partnerships with community members who are taking ownership of their land and their future. Their local initiative focuses on Restoration, Transformation, Sustainability and Preservation of the environment to combat the current practices which have caused climate change in the form of global warming.
These efforts matter most because they are community owned and community driven with the purpose of environmental restoration, transocial economic benefits and environmental sustainability.
Volunteer experiences have a direct and positive impact on local communities by injecting money into the local economy through the purchase of food, transportation, and tourism activities. Volunteering is a great way to give back to the comunity and make a difference in the world. Depending on the type of volunteer experience you are interested in, your time can be spent improving educational resources and opportunities, providing medical services to underserved communities, or promoting environmental conservation and sustainable farming techniques.

You will have meals provided and rooms cleaned on the weekends, but you will also be expected to clean up after yourself and play your part in keeping the accommodation neat and organized.
