VOLUNTEER WITH US
Did you know that volunteers are behind the water quality monitoring of our rivers since 2005? For almost 15 years, indigenous communities of Obu-Manuvu, Bagobo and Ata have been conducting community-based water monitoring every month.
IDIS relies on its network of volunteers and partners from other CSOs and government agencies to address the threats and issues concerning Davao’s watersheds.
Put those talents and skills into good use, invest in protecting our water sources! Sign up now!
