WHO WE ARE
All tourism activities in the Virunga Massif and even beyond, needs to be sustainable regardless of whatever motivation- holidays, adventure, conservation education, conferences, business, ecotourism, Geo-Tourism and Voluntourism. Sustainable tourism refers to a concept of visiting a place as a tourist and ensuring to make only positive impacts on the environment, society and economy.
Our volunteers stay at Hotels, guest houses and home stays depending on the budget. If we have a group of volunteers wishing to stay together, that is encouraged too. However, the V.C.P organizes a get-together to talk about the work to be done by volunteers. After learning more, as a volunteer, you will meet people in the local community, discover the rural way of life and visit their programs. The skilled volunteers contribute significantly in imparting desired skills to the local community members hence alleviation of poverty and improvement of livelihoods.
