We introduce and implement environmentally friendly solutions for the communities which focus on eco-construction, planting bamboo as eco-friendly solution used for construction and our teams emphasize sustainable tourism operations.
It’s a unique opportunity which focuses on the prevention of waste, direct clean-up action, and explores creative opportunities for reusing, repurposing and recycling plastics. With a particular emphasis on Eco bricking and opportunities for recycling plastic, volunteers will work closely with local communities to help clean-ups and use plastic bottles and discarded rubbish to create bricks that can be used to build vital structures.
In Zanzibar, volunteers explore Jozani Forest. The largest tract of native bush on the island and is famously home to the endangered Red Colobus Monkey which is found only in Zanzibar. Volunteers will gain conservation experience by supporting local initiatives that aim to protect and preserve the natural environment and its wildlife through a range of conservation and sustainability activities and community education programs.
