Help us in our efforts to save the critically endangered Mountain Gorillas!
SAFE WORLDWIDE is partnering with SACOLA, a small community-based organization in Rwanda, that promotes awareness, jobs and education to the local people who live on the border of the Virunga Mountains, which is home to 480 critically endangered mountain gorillas. SAFE and SACOLA create jobs and opportunities that improve the livelihood of the local people, in exchange for providing safeguards for these extremely rare animals. We help in conflict management issues between the people and the National park. As an example, SACOLA created the Buffalo-Gorilla wall, which keeps the wildlife safely within the confines of the National park and out of human conflict area. SAFE believes that to save endangered species you need to involve the local people who in turn will support their survival.
We need YOUR help! SAFE has big plans for 2019 to help SACOLA hire and train guides that will work in ecotourism (to visit habituated groups of Mountain gorillas) but also to protect them from harm from poachers and illegal snares. We help local women in the region find jobs so they can support their families and send their kids to school.
As always, SAFE commits that 100% of the funds raised for this cause will go to support the Mountain Gorillas. SAFE and SACOLA take no salaries and all funds go to meet our objectives.
