This programme targets Historically Marginalised People which; is traditional forest dwellers living on hunting and fruits gathering which; unfortunately is not possible in Rwanda following their eviction from their dwells for the creation of national parks. The Climate Farming programme aims at providing them with basic knowledge, skills and facility necessary for them to adopt farming as an alternative source of living through Climate Smart Agriculture. 

This programme involves among others the development of Small livestock whereby volunteers help in building hutches and distributing livestock as well as helping in their management, Soil protection by promoting anti-erosive practices such as tree planting and water catchment, farming including propagating innovative techniques, cultivating and crop management, seeds selection and multiplication and management, the development of family gardens as well as on farm learning and practicum for students and researchers and any other intervention related to climate farming resilience.

In order to provide volunteers with many opportunities to learn and contribute to community conservation efforts in Rwanda, volunteers are elected to join the team that represents Partners For Conservation in functions, meetings and other conservation gathering.

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.
