Anjali is looking for a volunteer gardener to assist and support our full-time garden volunteer and the Future Leaders Program Coordinator in a sustainable organic vegetable garden.

  • Improve our sustainable development program (reduce plastic use, reduce pesticide use, etc)
  • Assist the children during their weekly gardening lessons
  • Help them to garden
  • Organize workshops related to nature (trees, flowers, insects of the garden) to increase their knowledge while practising English
  • Expand our partnerships with hostels and restaurants to sell the products of our garden

OTHER INFORMATION

  • Volunteers and interns can apply to this mission
  • The volunteer/intern must be covered by medical insurance for the duration of the mission
