Collective Action in the Virunga Region

MCDO is working in partnership with Red Rocks Rwanda to promote sustainable conservation in the Virunga region

Mgahinga Community Development Organization works closely with other local organizations in the Virunga conservation area. The "Virunga Massif" (as the area is popularly known) covers a large ecological belt on the borders of Uganda, Rwanda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Together with partners such as Red Rocks Initiative in Rwanda, we are combining our efforts to promote initiatives that improve the livelihoods of communities in the Virunga transboundary area, while at the same time spearheading conservation of the endangered mountain gorillas.
