Conserving 250,000 Acres of Tanzanian Rainforest

March Project Update

A big thank you for believing in the import need to conserve Tanzania's forests. Whether you have donated $5 or $500 to this project please know that every dollar counts and is put right to work. We have been overwhelmed by the generous support this project has received in recent months and hope our partnership to conserve East Africa's forests continues well into the future. With just over $1,000 to raise towards our $20,000 goal, we are well on our way to making a lasting impact (and once this project is fulling funded we'll be back with even more opportunities to conserve Tanzania's forests!). 

ARC's field partner, the Tanzania Forest Conservation Group (TFCG), publishes The Arc Journal and we invite you to check out the latest issue to better understand some of the current events surrounding Tanzania's forests - everything from forest justice to the government's role in conserving these forests. You can also read up on TFCG program highlights, including encouraging youth engagement in environmental issues, land use planning, and the REDD pilot project. Funds raised from this GlobalGiving project go to directly to the field to support these and other critical conservation projects. 

If you live in or near NYC, we would love for you to join us at our 21st annual Artists for Africa benefit this April 11th where you can learn even more about our mission to support grassroots community development and conservation projects in Tanzania. More details about this special event for Tanzania, its people and its forests, can be found here

Asante Sana!
