2011 MtKG and Rason (32)

Rason Volunteer Programme

Group A Dates: March 24 - March 30 2013

Group A Price: 995 Euros

We are back in Rason, but this time with a lot more purpose and passion! Probably geared more towards returning customers or people with a heart for goodwill. We are launching a volun-tourism program with our partners in North Korea and will be spending a week in Rason, rolling-up our sleeves, getting down and dirty in the heartland. This is an awesome opportunity to get closer to the locals and work together for a common cause. We’ll be planting seeds and shepherding goats. We will also spend time taking a tour of the Rajin-Songbon area, as well as visiting factories and other industrial complexes to witness first-hand, the new growth that’s emerging from this land.
