REGENERATION OF A VIABLE SPACE
FOR MAN AND NATURE

The ancient Acacia tree is a symbol of regeneration, perseverance, and integrity. It is the first tree to grow back after the degradation or destruction of the land. The Acacia tree enriches and restructures soils, preparing the return of the forest, which takes about thirty years. It therefore perfectly represents the philosophy of our organization: restoring damaged ecosystems into safe and durable platforms for biodiversity and human growth.

OUR MISSION

Acacia’s mission is the protection of the biodiversity in DRC, by incentivizing and educating the local population in respecting its ecosystem, for their mutual benefits. Acacia may carry out any educational, cultural, technical or ecotourism project to deliver on its mission.
