Reviews

Wonderful time
"I had a fabulous time doing voluntary work here. The organisation first appealed to me because of the good work they do with reforestation and the protection of local biodiversity, as well as taking part in many interesting research projects. It was a pleasure to work for them and in turn it helped me understand a lot about how a charity organisation works, what planting local trees entails and the importance of environmental education. The organisation is always trying to get the local community involved by providing guided hikes and organising camping and many other events. But the most special memories are lovely people I met there who went out of their way to make me feel at home!"- Maureen Doyle
