We’ve partnered with five rainforest villages in Maniema, the most remote province in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

These villages were expelled from the two neighbouring national parks when they were created.

As well as halting forest loss, we’re working to ensure that this time, these villages benefit from keeping the forest standing.
