Volunteering at Askari has been, perhaps, the most rewarding experience of my life. I’ve seen so many amazing things and on top of that I’ve been a part of a huge, unique and very important (I believe) project concerning environmental initiatives. Being an environmental student, it has been exhilarating to see the work being done in Pidwa. I hope to see more places use the same approach as Askari Wilderness Conservation Programme. Our wild places are disappearing at an alarming rate, but Askari seems to be on the fore front of the battle against the loss of the wild. It’s been such a pleasure to be part of this. Conservation really came alive for me here. Such an inspiration. Thank you so much for an incredible, life-changing experience.
