Organization Description
Greenpop offers two fantastic volunteer programmes in Livingstone, Zambia.
1) FESTIVAL OF ACTION 2016
From 25 June - 17 July 2016, we are once again bringing together people from around the globe to learn about environmentally conscious living, climate change, conservation, biodiversity, sustainable technologies, active citizenship and of course, plant lots and lots of trees and have loads of fun in one of the most beautiful places on Earth! As in 2015 we will have two programmes:
SCHOOLS PROGRAMME (25 June - 2 July 2016): this programme is highly valuable for high school students as it:
- provides a unique social bridging and educational opportunity
- offers students volunteer experience
- exposes them to careers in the NGO/social enterprise sector
- encourages them to become active citizens in their own communities
- adds huge value to schools through participation in this well-publicised event
GENERAL PROGRAMME (3-10 July 2016 and/or 10-17 July 2016)

2) LIVINGSTONE: ONGOING VOLUNTEER PROGRAMME
Besides our three-week Festival of Action that happens every July / July period, Greenpop also runs an ongoing volunteer programme in cooperation with African Impact.
In the morning, volunteers assist with capturing data on tree monitoring missions, education workshops at schools on a wide range of topics, including the importance of trees and their natural environment, and on how they can play an active role in preserving it. Part of the environmental workshops is the promotion of solar cooking and using rocket stoves.
In the afternoon volunteers attend several community development projects, for example farming, building and construction, reading club, art club, adult literacy club, Maramba old people's home or after school clubs.
