Partners For Conservation is delighted to welcome Miss Leonie Zeuner, a young German volunteer from ARTEFACT. Leonie will stay with us for a period of one year.

A partnership with ARTEFACT is a great opportunity and having a young and committed volunteer as Leonie Zeuner is an added value for a young organization without enough financial and human resources like Partners For Conservation.

Leonie has joined a team of other young volunteers from Rwanda and Uganda committed to contributing to the preservation of a biodiversity legacy through (1) Education research, information collection and sharing, (2) Capacity building and projects management, (3) Socio-cultural and economic development projects. Leonie is settling herself the Rwandan lifestyle. She can speak some Kinyarwanda, cook some beans but her most preference is hiking these hills to meet our beneficiaries up in the vicinity of the mountain gorillas’ home.

She’s the fourth volunteer to join us, after Brianna Kathryn Wolfe, Blair N. Denohue from the United Sates of America as well as Joselyne  Tumukunde, a  national volunteer, who joined Partners For Conservation last year.

Partners For Conservation, a young organization, established in 2014 as a local Non Governmental Organization based in Rwanda, wants to give students and tourists a chance to share their skills with the local community and gain experience.

We offer numerous opportunities for people looking for an African experience. These include internship, volunteering and scientific tourism. From day one, until the last day of your adventure, we can organise and manage your volunteering, internship or scientific tourism experience. Our programmes are designed to meet both your and conservation needs. The placement starts with introduction to the local language. The cultural immersion program gives an understanding of local life and culture, and more.

Show your support for conservation / develop your scientific skills by working with environmental management institutions and grassroots organisations that work hand-in-hand with disadvantaged and marginalised people, Children, women and ex-hunters. We focus on conservation, poverty alleviation and socio-economic integration projects.

Issues we address through our programs: Environment and climate change, conservation, Tourism development, ending poverty, Public Health, gender, water and hygiene. These are addressed through: research, monitoring, education, infrastructure, capacity building, Language and ICT training, proposal writing and fundraising, advocacy and lobbying.

Partners For Conservation provides facilities and support to successful applicants at a cost-effective price. 15% of your total fees go directly to the community through poverty alleviation, education, health and social projects.

Partners For Conservation philosophy reflects that of Matt Fenton, CEO of Inspired Escapes, who suggests thatadventure expeditions be used to drive lasting social change right here in the local communities, that we can connect travellers directly with their host communities, not only to witness firsthand their impact but to expand and broaden the entire travel experience into one that is truly transformative.”
