We shall have people to people interactions. Most of our Manpower is on Voluntary Basis, and Most of our resources shall eventually emanate from activities by volunteers and supporters. Naturally therefore <strong>Volunteering and Volunteering tourism</strong> shall be the flagship project symbiotic to our other sustainability projects.
