Volunteering with us
We are inviting volunteers, who are interested in working with us in environmental activities so as to raise awareness in our community and make our surroundings more environmentally safe to live. The working place for volunteers is a community owned forest, which is located nearest to the fast growing town Moshi with high environmental challenges. Therefor a joint venture between environmental expertise, community, volunteers and other interested organizations is needed in order to solve the problem.
