About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

Actually this activity is very thematic because it is carried out on two small islands around Tomia, namely Sawa Island and Ndaa Island.

*About Sawa Island:
Sawa Island is a small island in front of Tomia. The island is not inhabited by anyone, but why I am very concerned about this island, because Sawa Island is a very exotic island that offers all the beauty, sand, beaches, coral reefs, and very rich views in the eyes. This island has been polluted by plastic waste carried by the waves, which in turn will threaten habitats and other marine ecosystems.

*About Ndaa Island:
Ndaa Island is the smallest island among the islands around Tomia. Located in the southeast which is only overgrown with sandal sand and other beach plants. The amazing island of exotic offers all the beauty, sand, beaches, coral reefs, and other views. This island is also very alarming because it is polluted by plastic waste carried by the waves from various directions when the transition of the season.

#So how do it?
In this activity we will choose one island that will be the target location for cleaning. What’s interesting here is that we will stay on the island (beach) by using a tent for couple days or more according to the duration of the agreed time. Of course before go to the island we will prepare equipment and food needs while staying on the island.

While on the island, of course the activities that will be carried out are not only cleaning, but here I will also invite you to learn fishing with traditional techniques, make tropical-style dishes, introduce the culture of looking for snails and shellfish that can be consumed, etc. In addition, you can also exchange experiences with me. The two islands are surrounded by a very beautiful underwater panorama, so you can swim or snorkeling freely. You can sunbathe at the beach while enjoying the wind and enjoying the freshness of coconut water. And maybe we can also plan fun activities to refresh the atmosphere such as beach games, etc.
