YAAPHA needs volunteers to work on conservation projects that aim to tackle some of the world’s most significant
environmental issues

    YAAPHA needs volunteers to work on conservation projects that aim to tackle some of the world’s most significant environmental issues – habitat destruction, wildlife extinction and the seeking of sustainable development for local communities. 

     YAAPHA’s conservation projects are a unique opportunity for volunteers to live in remote areas with spectacular ecosystems and amazing wildlife. 

    The volunteers would be working alongside professionals and other volunteers on adventurous projects that search for practical and sustainable means to reach their goal. 

    The conservation projects are a national effort; from volunteering in the heart of the Kilimanjaro mountain forest.

Activity Description for this project are as follows:-
1. Plant Trees
A conservation awareness volunteer would work with the local staff when they visit different schools and plant trees on the grounds of these schools. This would include getting the children in their schools to participate and encouraging them to continue on with other conservation projects for their schools.

2. Tree Nurseries
The organization has their own tree nurseries at their centers and a conservation awareness volunteer would be required to help in these nurseries; be it to help in the care of the trees, maintaining the nursery structures or in the development of new nurseries.

3. Environmental Awareness
A conservation awareness volunteer would be expected to assist staff in their environmental awareness educational endeavor conducted in different communities and schools. The organization has different methods of providing this awareness according to the community targeted. Many community members destroy the environment due to their lack of knowledge regarding environmental issues.
