The project is answering the needs of preserving the coastal side of North Java Sea in Mangkang. This area is now in danger due to the abrasion of the sea, cutting mangrove by local factory and heavy force from the river flows. Volunteers will do several works including planting mangrove and other trees in seashore, garbage management discussion to local people and children, renovation of mangrove garden for environment education center, school visits and green campaign.
IIWC Volunteer house with shared toilet and bathroom, sleeping bag and mattress are needed, and self-cooking.
The campsite is in the village where the local culture is still strong. People there are very nice and humble. During leisure time, volunteers can take a walk to several beautiful landscape or maybe have a nice talk in cafe nearby the camp site.
IIWC works with local farmers group who called Mangrove Lestari. There will be volunteers house provided.
We do expecting that volunteers are open minded, tolerant, respect the local custom and culture, love to learn and share.
Please bring cap and sun block to protect from the sun burn. Be ready with the mosquito, but don’t worry there is no malaria in this area.
