In this program you will be part of an environmental campaign for a local Malawian village!

You will be contributing to this campaign in a variety of ways but our program emphasizes tree nursery education and efforts, as this is a first step to help counter the effects of climate change and unsustainable practices.

This means that you will find yourself planting trees raised in our nursery around the village in community centers such as schools, local markets, and clinics.

The nursery also acts as a center for local villagers who would like to learn more about making their own tree nursery or garden at home. Here you will also take part in planning and presenting environmental lessons on practical topics such as recycling in the home, reducing one’s carbon footprint, broader topics like the effects of climate change and the need for environmental concern.

As part of this program we will also take a lead role in helping with garbage collection, creating garbage bins, developing home gardens and other activities that will improve the sustainability of this growing community.

Please note this trip may require you to purchase a cultural experience week with it. Click Here to find the relevant cultural experience week based on the country where this trip operates in.
