There are many advantages to using permaculture in Zambia. One of the most notable advantages is that permaculture can help to improve soil quality. This is important because Zambia has a number of issues with soil quality, including erosion, nutrient depletion, and acidification. Permaculture can help to address these issues by using sustainable farming practices that help to improve soil health.
The program will work with the 2 schools and communities so you will engage them to grow trees, plants and preserve nature. You will teach and train the children and communities along with the local trainers to get the schools and communities involved to protect the earth.
You will grow green and natural materials to address the effect of climate change and assist vulnerable communities with huge challenges. You will respond and promote a green environment that will support life and nature at its best.
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.
