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 in the border area of Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Together with partners such as Red Rocks Initiative in Rwanda, we are combining efforts to promote initiatives that improve livelihoods of communities in the Virunga transboundary area at the same time spearheading conservation of the endangered mountain gorillas.
