Canada World Youth Volunteers for Somenos

Canada World Youth descended upon Cowichan this fall with a flurry of activity aimed at helping local non-profit organizations focussed in the areas of health and environment. The Somenos Marsh Wildlife Society was lucky enough to have two fantastic volunteers from the Canada-Indonesia program helping with our conservation initiatives. 

Danait of Ontario and Takim of Indonesia were not only a joy to have around the office, they were extremely helpful, skilled and cheerful workers. They assisted us with many important projects and gained skills in fields that were new to them as well.

Among other things the two can now add to their resumes: Biological field work, water quality sampling, display material creation, amazing organizational skills, tech support, mad rowing skills and so much more.

We would like to thank our volunteers and all who make this special inter-cultural program possible. I know I'm not alone when I express just how valuable this program is to our community in many ways. Best of luck in Indonesia CWY!! We hope to see you again in the future. Thanks for leaving Cowichan a little better than when you came.
