@ socialab colombia..Thank Goodluck too

This is an initiative to reduce poverty and to protect the endangered wildlife that are threatened due to poverty and conflict that fuel the hunting of wild animals for food and business in the biodiversity of Tanzania. Help ex poachers move into alternative livelihoods and break the socio-economic cycle of dependence on wildlife poaching which can lead to arrest or even cost them their lives. This is a bold way to combine peace, prosperity, and planet. We encourage those living in and around the protected areas to adopt alternative with the tools and training to start sustainable, income-generating businesses and savings groups. This offers a peaceful path to earn money and respect as part of a community. Thus it provides a powerful alternative to poach, while also leveraging a successful business model, which makes it a new approach.
