The Great Primate Handshake is a wonderful opportunity to step into the lives of those living in local communities across several countries in Africa. Through participating as part of the team you gain valuable insight into the customs and beliefs of others, often being welcomed with great warmth and celebration. In return you have the opportunity and privilege to help produce promotional media for the conservation groups you meet, providing a platform for their voice to be heard internationally.
When embarking on a Handshake expedition you will realise that there is a large world yet to be told, and many voices still to be heard, that are untouched by communications media. Many of these communities do not have plumbing and flushing toilets let alone electricity or a means to electronically record their lives and efforts in conservation. The people you meet will be so grateful as well as excited for your hard work.
