Eco Tourism is seen as a key and sustainable income driver for the communities the AWF operates in. Activities range through eco lodge design, itinerary and product development and training, and marketing. The AWF has its own eco tourism website (www.awf-adventureholidays.com
) and attends travel exhibitions such as the World Travel Market in London.
Encouraging entrepreneurship is key to communities becoming self sufficient and more sustainable. The AWF has its own micro finance facility and enterprise development fund, and its own trading website (www.awf-globalmarket.com
) to help access to the global economy. Volunteers can support in all of these activities.
These are all key functions in developing any organisation whether it be social or for profit. Volunteers in all of these areas are vital.
Fundraising is critical!! The AWF has its own fundraising unit which explores opportunities of collaborations with Foundations, Corporates, philantropists and others. Join the team!
The AWF is particularly interested in collaborations with MBA types to develop its, and its collaborators', strategies and thinking.
We work in developing economies often with bright, talented and enthusiastic individuals who need support in developing products for the global market.
Web development, internet marketing, social networking all critical to any organisation.
