This hands-on environmental program that aims to create more sustainable communities through the active involvement of young people.
Working with young people in schools, we engage with the environment through outdoor conservation activities. Young people plant trees in schools and communities, students/pupils raise school tree nurseries and distribute seedlings to the community to plant for free and thus making their communities greener and more sustainable.
Key Issues to Address:
• littering among students/pupils
• soil erosion their compounds and school gardens
• bare school compounds with limited vegetation, reducing the student’s enjoyment outdoors
• schools are leading consumers of wood and are responsible for the loss of forests
We work with these young people to take collective action and solve some of these issues, one at a time and together we will have our schools more livable and sustainable.
Some Volunteer Tasks Include:
- Educate students/pupils on environment protection, growing healthier food in school gardens, and best farming practices.
- Establish orchards with the pupils (fruit tree gardens) in our eco-schools
- Take pupils to explore their natural surroundings
- Interact with the pupils to develop their English skills.
- Develop an outdoor curriculum for sports, scouts, etc.
- MANDATORY: Cultural session with the local group and a village school outlining facts and information about your country.
