RIPPLE Africa is looking for environmental volunteers to assist with our many environmental projects. In Malawi, over 90% of the population are subsistence farmers, and the environment plays a huge role in people’s lives. Deforestation is also a huge problem, and an area of forest the size of a football pitch is cut down in Malawi every ten minutes.
RIPPLE Africa is involved in projects to help restore the environment and better the lives of people in the community, including fuel-efficient wood stoves, community tree-planting, fruit tree projects, bee-keeping, and a massive forest conservation project working in partnership with the Nkhata Bay Forestry Commission.
Volunteers assist RIPPLE Africa staff in promoting these projects and delivering their outcomes. Upon arrival, volunteers receive an induction where they are introduced to all our various projects, after which they can choose a particular project which they would like to focus on.
