Karin Altvater


Former Volunteer



Karin Altvater finished her B.Sc. 'Landscape ecology and Nature conservation' in 2018. During her studies she went some months to live with farmer families in Kenya and Thailand, where she learned about their daily life and struggles and worked on some community projects.

Shortly before she joined ARCOS, Karin did an internship at the Nature Biodiversity Conservation Union (NABU) in the Africa department in Germany. There she gained a lot of experience in project management as well as overall office work.

Karin is volunteering at ARCOS (Kigali Office) for 6 months (Feb-Aug/2019). She is most interested in community work, sustainable agriculture and food security.

Karin likes to write, photograph, listen to music and spend time with friends and family.
