This program allows participants to make a contribution to sustainability in traditional coastal villages, working towards assisting locals in addressing a range of issues surrounding water scarcity. This may include working on projects related to waste management, recycling initiatives as well as water and sanitation for health, all with a view towards longer term sustainability.
Dawasamu is your home for the duration of this program, and once arriving at base camp you will be hit with a peculiar serenity, seldom experienced in the hustle and bustle of life in a modern city.
On this program, you could be taking part in a range of activities, from the installation of waste management and rainwater harvesting systems, interacting with villagers, all while making lifelong friends from a range of cultural and geographical backgrounds.
Depending on the needs of the community at that time, there may also be the opportunity to work on more specific water management initiatives such as fresh-water management, water security & water and sanitation hygiene. Some of the core focuses include health and nutrition, educational empowerment, environmental management, water, sanitation & hygiene initiatives, along with the activities mentioned previously.
