Experience Zimbabwe by working with villagers to improve their local environment!

In this program you will be helping out at an environmental club at a local Zimbabwean school and village hall, where you will have the opportunity to be part of an environmental campaign for students and youth.

A part of your tasks will be taking part in group efforts such as tree planting, something usually needed in public areas of need such as the local school, community centre, and clinic.

You can also expect to be involved with the tree nursery, a recycling project, and water management program to name a few active goals of this program.

These activities do not just help improve the environment, they highlight the issue of environmental conservation and provide you with subject matter to discuss at your campaign presentations. You can develop and integrate these activities in the classes you will be asked to present along with issues such as the the local effect of climate change.
