About the location

The volunteer will be based and operate in Musanze district. Musanze is a district in the Northern Province of Rwanda. Its capital city is Ruhengeri which; is also sometimes known as Musanze. Musanze is Rwanda's most mountainous district, containing the largest part of the Volcanoes National Park and its head office at Kinigi. Five of the eight volcanoes of the Virunga chain (Karisimbi, Bisoke, Sabyinyo, Gahinga and Muhabura) are within the district boundaries. It is also in this district that most of Rwanda's mountain gorillas are found, making it the most popular tourist destination in the country. Musanze's capital, Ruhengeri, is one of the largest cities in Rwanda and serves as a hub for tourists.

It is easy for a volunteer to access the rest corners of the country from Musanze for example Musanze is at 1h drive from Gisenyi and the Democratic Republic of Congo border. Gisenyi is known for its super weekends for water sports lovers. Musanze is also at 2h30 drive from Kigali and at 25 minutes to the Cyanika, the Uganda border.

Tagesablauf

A day as a volunteer varies on a daily basis. The day stars by a briefing at Partners For Conservation HQs before the volunteer drives to the field. The volunteer is required to carry some snacks and drinks as the lunch won’t be served until the field is one which normal goes beyond the lunch time. After the field, the volunteer drives back to the office for a field report and preparation of the next day. The day ends at 4:30pm

Partners For Conservation ensures volunteer intervention supports the necessary need and where a volunteer is happy to intervene.  Partners For Conservation supports volunteer’s intervention by providing a comprehensive team involving among others a driver (where necessary), a local interpreter and senior officer/ project manager.  This is key to ensure there’s excellent communication on and off the field for a successful intervention and teamwork.

ABOUT PARTNERS FOR CONSERVATION


Partners For Conservation is a Rwandan charity that was founded in 2014. It was registered by the Rwanda Governance Board as a local non-governmental organization under nº343/RGB/NGO/LP/07/2018.

Its overall mission is to save a biodiversity legacy through the promotion, protection and conservation. Partners For Conservation serves as a platform that provides opportunities to everyone from farmers to businessmen; from children to adults; from illiterates to academics; from low-income people to donors; from volunteers to professionals, to appreciate and celebrate their contributions towards the conservation of the biodiversity.

Objectively, Partners For Conservation is dedicated to the extension and sharing of opportunities in promotion, protection and conservation of biodiversity through Education, Community Empowerment and Entrepreneurship, Public Health and Environmental Justice.


PARTNERS FOR CONSERVATION APPROACH


Partners For Conservation believes in the innate capabilities of every human being in biodiversity promotion, protection and conservation. For this, PFC advocates for a partnership of all stakeholder as an utmost requisite to ensure a biodiversity legacy while driving feeling of responsibility and ownership. Thus, the establishment of Partners For Conservation as platform where every single contribution is accounted for. Partners For Conservation believes that a such partnership remains a key drive of inclusive and participation of all stakeholders in local needs assessment, designing priorities and relevant strategies to address identified them. Our intervention is driven by the desire of promote education so to build the capacity of locals and raise their awareness to ensure they are empowered enough to actively participate in community and conservation processes and are capable to influence decisions affecting both the community and conservation welfare. 


OUR OBJECTIVES


Partners For Conservation is dedicated to the extension and sharing of opportunities in promotion, protection and conservation of biodiversity through Education, Community Empowerment and Entrepreneurship, Public Health and Environmental Justice to allow all society members to appreciate and celebrate their contributions towards the conservation of the biodiversity.


PHILOSOPHY


At Partners For Conservation, we believe in the innate capability of every human being to promote, protect and conserve biodiversity. We aim at driving everyone’s appreciation and celebration of her/his contributions towards the conservation of the biodiversity.


GOALS


Partners For Conservation aims at preserving a legacy through the promotion, protection and conservation of biodiversity.

Partners For Conservation believes that everyone is born a conservator, and that only good will and means make the difference. We work to serve as the only platform through which; farmers to businessmen, children to adults, illiterates to academicians, poor to wealthy people, volunteers to professionals, interns to researchers are able to contribute towards a just world.

Currently, Partners For Conservation is contributing to the promotion, protection and conservation of national biodiversity through a holistic intervention axed on Conservation, Education, Community Empowerment and Entrepreneurship, Public Health and Environmental Justice activities to promote the social-economic integration of poor, vulnerable and marginalized people surrounding the gorilla habitat.

One of the national biodiversity flag-bear is Mountain gorilla (Gorilla beringei beringei) one of the two subspecies of the eastern gorillas. One species is found in the Volcanoes mountains of Central Africa within three National Parks: Mgahinga in South-west of Uganda, Volcanoes in North West Rwanda, and Virunga in Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo. The other is found in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable National Park. According to the most recent census mountain gorillas stands at an estimated 1,000 individuals (2018 gorilla census)


Despite being removed from the IUCN Red List of critically endangered species, mountain gorillas remain endangered and their survival remains dependent on conservation efforts. (I.U.C.N Red list, 2018). This success is credited to a number of efforts by individuals and consortium initiated to support conservation interventions such as; research and monitoring of gorilla health, and improving social-economic living conditions of communities surrounding the park.


For its exceptional biodiversity values, in 1983 UNESCO added this park to the International Man and Biosphere Reserves. Despite this, the park is subject to a variety of serious and growing anthropogenic pressures largely related to it being situated in one of the most densely populated parts of Rwanda.
