  • Help


    Depending on the interests of the Volunteer,
    he/she can decide how to get involved, to help the community groups with their work.

    It is even possible to reactivate the former volunteer concept, witch attemt to establish a marine conservation, a comunity conservation and a medical assistence program in the community.

    The former project have not been realised due some unforseen incidents and the lack of organisational support.
    You could help us to start with a new beginning!

    One of the most primal community projects would be to connect the village with the internet,
    and build up a new framework ...
