Volunteers and visitors alike are offered opportunities for boating, diving and hiking in Lake Malawi National Park. In addition, they can visit the HEEED Handicrafts area where creative recycling by local artisans has led to some striking hand-made items. These include hand-made paper, books from waste paper, onion skins, teabags, printed cards, bottle-top baskets, coasters, bags crocheted from plastic and glass tumblers made from discarded bottles.
