composting. tree-planting. seed distribution.

bee-keeping. vermiculture.








self-sufficiency, sustainability, scalability, transparency,

community-building permaculture and conservation.











focusing on women,

we concentrate on cooperatives

bordering national parks,

because a stable community

does not poach

the animals and trees within. 

Our presence in conflict-ridden areas

supports farming as a successful alternative

to picking up weapons


an opportunity to lay down weapons,

while our presence in post-conflict areas

helps communities re-build.


Dr. Jane Goodall and The Guardian Project share the

One Community vision.

"Our community-centered conservation programs in Africa

empower local people to build sustainable livelihoods

while promoting regional conservation goals such as reforestation

and ending the illegal, commercial bushmeat trade....

to create stable communities which work with us

to protect and conserve the environment shared

by all Earth’s living creatures. "
-Dr. Jane Goodall



Our mission is to facilitate scalable opportunity

through direct, grass-roots interaction

with local farmers living alongside protected wilderness spaces and the wildlife within - working with them

in their journey to a healthy, self-sustainable independence

and supportive co-existence with that wildlife nearby.


Dr. Mohammed Yunnis and The Guardian Project share a focus on social and personal responsibility and the importance of giving in an empowering and sustainable way.

"A charitable dollar has only one life; a Social Business dollar can be invested over and over again."

"In my experience, poor people are the world's greatest entrepreneurs. Every day, they must innovate in order to survive. They remain poor because they do not have the opportunities to turn their creativity into sustainable income."

-Dr. Mohammad Yunnis
