Who We Are

It’s not just that Nature makes our lives better, but also We are part of it.

Love and respect are part of the natural world. We believe that access to nature is the basic human right. We strive for equity and justice in everything we do to make sure that natural resources are used sustainably. We take bold actions informed by sound science to protect and defend Nature for all. We collaborate across generations to build a healthier and sustainable future.


Our History

Our Beginnings Since 2016

As problems connected with biodiversity loss, conservation needs, and lack of motivation and ownership among local communities to the sustainable use of natural resources become more complex in Rwanda and in the region; Mr. Prudence NDABASANZE, Mr. Jean Claude DUSABIMANA, and Ms. Solange UWERA came together in 2016 and established Nature Rwanda to support Nature conservation and sustainable use of natural resources in Rwanda. Nature Rwanda is governed by an Executive Board chaired by Mr. Prudence NDABASANZE. Mr. Jean Claude DUSABIMANA, an experienced conservation planner and manager serves as the Executive Director. Nature Rwanda has its headquarters at the Nova Complex Market, NM 11 ST Musanze, Rwanda. Nature Rwanda is constituted as a non-governmental conservation organization, works closely with Government agencies, research and education institutions, sister civil society organizations, and community organizations in the implementation of its programmes
