12 Aug Elana Leitner – Israel
The 6 weeks I volunteered at Askari is amongst the best experiences I have had in my life. I felt that I was making a contribution in a place of integrity where conserving wilderness and all that it encompasses is the most important goal. The programme was well balanced with a wide range of activities and always fun. I learned a huge amount about many subjects and aspects, some that were entirely new to me and often thought provoking. I found the staff to be inspirational. Their passion, their infectious joy, their belief in what they are doing, their involvement and working alongside the volunteers in each activity, their patience and tireless willingness to explain, teach, discuss and answer any question was exemplary. I highly recommend Askari and intend returning to this little slice of heaven in the hopefully not too distant future. I am extremely proud to call myself an Askarian.
