Reforestation and Trail Maintenance

YAAPHA needs volunteers in our conservation projects that aim to tackle environmental issues e.g. habitat destruction and sustainable development for local schools.

The volunteers in the reforestation and trail maintenance program work alongside local staffs and other volunteers on adventurous projects that search for practical and sustainable means to reach their goal. 


Activity Description for this project are as follows:

1. Plant Trees

A reforestation and trail maintenance volunteer accompanies 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 with other conservation projects for their schools.


2. Tree Nurseries

The organization has their own tree nurseries at their centers and a reforestation and trail maintenance volunteer is 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 reforestation and trail maintenance 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.


4. Soil Erosion Control

YAAPHA works in efforts to prevent soil erosion in farming communities, grazing lands and also around schools. A reforestation and trail maintenance volunteer is expected to work with the staff to educate the local farmers and pupils on improved methods and techniques that help prevent soil erosion.


5. Construction of Water Holes

In most dry areas YAAPHA has initiated water hole projects. The construction of these holes are for the use of the people in the local communities. A reforestation and trail maintenance volunteer would be expected to help with these projects.

YAAPHA needs volunteers in our conservation projects that aim to tackle environmental issues e.g. habitat destruction and sustainable development for local schools.
