AREAS OF INTERVENTION
By the end of 2015, we are targeting to engage at least 250,000 Rwandan youth from all economic sectors, by helping them to develop basic and advanced skills on environmental protection, to ensure their participation in solving environmental problems in Rwanda..

Cooperating with stakeholders to develop alternative concepts of well being which integrate climate change resilience/adaptation and economy, promote inclusive low carbon development and strengthening sustainable use of ecosystem goods and services.
Providing and sharing knowledge on ecological status of local ecosystems in order to promote understanding on threats, conservation priorities to influence and steps that need to be taken towards sustainable conservation of the biodiversity.
Conservation farming for climate change adaptation and environment protection
As an organization that works closely with local communities, we recognize that sustainable agriculture practices are highly needed. Maintaining biological diversity is critical in this time where the world is experiencing extreme weather and unusual change in agricultural seasons.
