TOKA: NGO and Rural Eco Tourism Development

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionWe have a small but (crazy!) active NGO which works to "promote or protect the environmental, social and economic well-being of the Albanian Alps." Which means we basically do everything. From trail-marking to helping small businesses to education programs to fighting legal battles to protect the National Park.
  • LocationAlbania, Qarku i Kukësit, Tropojë District

  • Work
  • Type of work We need help with computer work, outdoor work, renovations, helping out tourism businesses with services, education programs - basically, whatever YOU like to do, we probably need help with it.
  • Hours per day There are no fixed working hours. I should admit that most people do end up getting caught up in the drama of what's going on here from day to day, so it's a better environment for people who like to throw themselves passionately into something.
  • Work requirements: We ask that people stay for a minimum of 1 month, as it takes at least a week of training to get people up to speed (during which time WE actually have MORE work training you, than if you weren't here at all :) Depending on where you end up working, you should be prepared to be flexible about accommodation and willing to stay in a tent, although rooms in the farmhouse may be available.
