Red Rocks Rwanda is a social enterprise that works with local communities around the Volcanoes National Park, which is home to the endangered mountain gorillas and other wildlife. It supports community-based environmental conservation programs that protect the natural resources and biodiversity of the Virunga Mountains region, through organic farming, which reduces soil erosion and chemical pollution, and enhances food security and nutrition. Red Rocks Rwanda also support beekeeping, which helps pollinate crops and plants, and provides honey and wax for income generation and tree planting. Social development and empowerment of local communities, especially women and youth is supported by providing people with skills and opportunities to participate in the tourism sector. Red Rocks Rwanda supports training in basket weaving, banana beer production, and cooking, which are traditional crafts and activities that showcase the local culture and generate income. They also offer eco-tours, cultural festivals, and art centres, which attract tourists and create jobs and advocate for policy changes that promote the inclusion and participation of women and youth in the tourism sector.
