OELO’s first project became an ecotourism site, Tsam Tsam, to create a source of revenue for local residents that valued the protection of biodiversity. Over the course of two years OELO’s mission has expanded to include the protection of biodiversity and ecosystem services for future generations, to build support for conservation with the local population and the next generation, and to generate income for local residents through the sustainable use of resources.

How We Helped

Funds from Charity Pot go towards the costs of the “We Are the Next Generation” environmental education program for 1500 students in 10 schools in Gabon, West Africa to learn about endangered species protection, stopping the bush meat trade and environmental protection.
