We also provide professional development opportunities and promote from within. As a result, you will find a culture that supports and inspires conservation achievement and personal development, both within the workplace and beyond.
The Nature Conservancy recognizes that successful protection efforts must include both the forest and the lake while balancing the resource needs of people. The Nature Conservancy has partnered with Pathfinder International to share the tools communities seek to help them live healthy lives in balance with their environment. We are calling this collaborative effort Tuungane (Kiswahili for “Let’s Unite!”). Through a grassroots-community approach we are empowering local people to sustainably manage their own natural resources through village land-use planning, co-operative fisheries management and micro-finance programs. In turn, improving access to primary and reproductive health for people provides increased capacity for sustainably managing their natural resources.
