MISSION & VISION
African Conservation Centre’s mission is to conserve biodiversity in East Africa and beyond through the collaborative application of scientific and indigenous knowledge, improved livelihoods and good governance through development of local institutions.
Through the years, we have stayed true to the following guiding values:
Innovate: Identify issues and develop innovative solutions to address the conservation challenges.
The African Wildlife Foundation, together with the people of Africa, works to ensure the wildlife and wild lands of Africa will endure forever. Founded in 1961 at the height of the African independence movement, AWF (then known at the African Wildlife Leadership Foundation) was created to help newly independent African nations and people conserve their own wildlife. AWF’s first approach was to train and educate African conservation professionals.
Kindernothilfe (German for "Supporting children in need") was founded in Germany in 1959 as a Christian organisation to support vulnerable and marginalized children and youth to develop their full potentials. Kindernothilfe Austria was founded in 1996, followed by Kindernothilfe Switzerland in 2004 and Kindernothilfe Luxembourg in 2009.
We partner with local non-governmental organisations to implement 609 projects in 32 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America and the Caribbean; most of them are faith-based and ecumenically Christian.

CETRAD was established in July 2002 as a follow up of the then Laikipia Research Programme (1976 - 1997), and therefore builds on the long term preinvestment research facility.

The WAD (Women's Action for Development) project focused on improving the socio-economic situation of vulnerable, rural women in the Kunene, Kavango and Oshikoto regions of Namibia.

This was achieved by enhancing the income generating capacities of 2819 San and Ovahimba women. Interventions included training on social issues and women’s rights, vocational skills training in a myriad of vocations varying from computer skills to welding.
