Bringing people and nature in harmony


In Burundi, the protection of Rusizi National Park, an important habitat of rare animal species, is fostered by planting trees and introducing improved cooking stoves. In workshops, the local population learns how to economise in a sustainable way, without harming nature. Our project thus improves both the ecological and social situation on-site.
