self-sufficiency, sustainability, scalability, transparency,

community-building 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

and

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

With The Guardian Project

you facilitate opportunity through direct,

grass-roots interaction with local farming families,

working with them in their journey

to self-sustaining independence,

and encouraging them to be pro-active participants

in community and country.

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
