Preserving The World's Second Largest Rainforest

Virunga, Democratic Republic Of The Congo

The world's second largest rainforest is at extreme risk. Devastating civil wars erupt across the Democratic Republic of the Congo every four years. In addition to the the loss of life, each war takes an extraordinary toll on the the Virunga rainforest, as rebel armies seek to use the rainforest as a strategic battleground, endangering trees and mountain gorillas.

It is 100% imperative to reducing global climate change that the Virunga rain forest region is preserved as a place where trees recycle carbon dioxide.

The Virunga team has built a hydroelectric plant to provide clean energy and electricity to the region, in the belief that economic development of local small businesses in the agricultural industry will drive peace.

Join the Virunga team in extending loans and donations to one of the world's most important conflict regions.
