This initial hands-on service project has become an annual event, where members and their partners, family and friends join us for hard work but also great fun.

Goal

It began in 2008 when per request, we helped a farmer clean up his alp and make it ready for the winter season. In 2010, we again offered our assistance to the forest rangers of Flims to clean an area of the forest, hard hit by storms.

Financial results

Alpine Mission helped us raise funds for donations to other projects.

General information / hands-on

24 individuals - including friends and partners - participated, hailing from 12 nations. This was an international effort for a local service project that was a fun bonding experience!

Report

We repeated the great success in 2011… hopefully many more to follow!
