RWCE is a non-profit organization with a mission to preserve Rwanda’s diverse species and environment for future generations through raising awareness and educating about conservation. The organization seeks to inspire people to take accountability and action to conserve and protect Rwanda’s animals and their natural habitat.
With rapid population growth and severe shortages of basic resources such as water and electricity, Rwanda’s environment is vulnerable. The time to act is now.
In recent months we have worked with the Rwandan government and the local teams on a strategic plan to develop our mission and vision.
