Mangrove Action Project
April 10, 2012

Coming from an enormous international NGO to MAP a few months ago was a big change. MAP is incredibly pro-active compared to their size and resources, yet volunteering with them is adding a healthy smoother rhythm to my life. They work in harmony with nature: non-stop, persistently, but coherently with life. They respect and conserve not only the natural resources, but also people, both the local community and all of us that contribute to MAP's work. I feel many conservationist have still a lot to learn from MAP when it comes to considering how important it is to take into account humans and their needs at all levels.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

It definitely did! One one hand I improved important fundraising skills (from networking to proposal writing and donor seeking); on the other hand, I learned how to have a big impact in my projects while keeping a healthy working rhythm (it's all about team work and planning!)

Healthier.
