Environmental Conservation in Tanzania

Environmental Conservation in Tanzania

Program description

Our environment should not be neglected, I’m sure you’d agree!

With this program you’ll do your part for future citizens of the world and experience the fast developing country of Tanzania in a unique way… by going back to nature!

There is not much rain forest area in Tanzania due to its weather conditions during certain parts of the year as well as the natural landscape, so forestry departments always do their best to protect what rainforest they have. But it is not enough. Now it is important that community members do their part to protect the forested areas and the animals that rely upon them.

One organization that we work with in Monduli does particularly well in maintaining a good environment around that area. This group is saving the community and empowering the women who run it at the same time. It is an important effort as many areas do not have enough trees, which affects the quality of the atmosphere negatively, and many locals struggle to take care of their families as the landscape continues to change.

This program works with an environmental club through a local school to encourage students towards environmental conservation. It’s a great chance to provide them with important knowledge about this subject, advising them on how to behave with their environment in the right way. You’ll be contributing your time on this campaign and planting seeds to nurture responsible future citizens of the world.

Your daily tasks will be a combination of activities dependent upon the weather and the season. You can expect to work on tree planting in the forest or in community spaces, tree nursery tasks that support this, and whenever possible you will be arranging classes with the environmental club in the school or community halls directed at local kids and teenagers.

All are welcome to join this program, especially those working or studying in the forestry field as this will be a great opportunity to work alongside a real community members and exchange your knowledge with them.
