VIRUNGA COMMUNITY PROGRAMS (V .C. P)
"Create Happiness and Community"
Virunga Community Programs is an institution recognized within the concept of Red Rocks Rwanda activities. In addition to operating responsible and ethical institution we make a broader contribution to the communities residing within the Virunga chain of mountains. We are committed to achieve this through engagement and advocacy on important issues and by supporting development based needs of the communities, and help to build stronger societies and create sustainable future.
We work with the local community to identify the best way we can minimize any negative impacts and contribute to create lasting social and economic benefits. Our staffs are mainly local volunteers and at the current moment we look forward for skilled international volunteers who can be able to help with the training and capacity building of the local population.
Virunga Community Programs was established on 1st February 2017 at Nkotsi Village around the Buhanga Eco-Park to promote gender equality, empower women in communities and improving the livelihoods of youth and developing the local community welfare through tourism programs, sustainable agricultural programs, handcraft enterprises, water and sanitation and wildlife conservation programs.
