OUR COMMUNITY PARTNERS
CHIEF BASABA BOOT'OMBALA
MAI NDOMBE, DRC
"Since we began working with Wildlife Works, I have started to recover everything I had lost.
The animals are coming back, and since our sacred sites are now protected from the logging company, I have regained my powers."
"We depend on Mother Earth in order to have the products we need for our families. That's why it is our duty to keep the territory healthy."
ANNE BOKUTU BOLEKOKA
MOTHER AND LOCAL FARMER
"The Wildlife Works project takes into account the issue of gender discrimination. There are great initiatives to engage women with sustainable agriculture.
Thanks to the revenue from this project, I was able to send my children to school."
COMMUNITY LEADER, DRC
"Logging companies destroyed our forest and scared the animals away with their noisy machines. Not even in the colonial times did we see the schools and clinics we have now. We've been forgotten."
TEACHER IN MPILI VILLAGE, DRC
"Us teachers have not been able to receive enough support from the state.
By partnering with Wildlife Works and protecting the forest, we have gained funds to build more schools."
KASIGAU CORRIDOR, KENYA
"Since Wildlife Works came in full swing to protect the forest and wildlife, charcoal production has decreased significantly. I am pleased to see that because the area has began to cool down,
because trees help to regulate the temperature of the environment."
CHIEF NKONSANGO NDALA
MAI NDOMBE, DRC
"We appreciate that Wildlife Works is committed for the long term, not like others who just donate individual items, like our old broken water pump, and then leave."
