A responsible partner to the community to be part of their upliftment
Community is key to conservation at Chem Chem.
The local population is from the land, belong to the land and many live off the land. But, when humans compete with wildlife for resources, it can lead to a conflict of interests.
Fabia and Nicolas recognised this. They understood this irreplaceable wilderness would not survive if neighbouring communities saw the wild animals as a threat to them, their livestock and their animals.
And so, the Chem Chem Foundation (CCF) was born. A non-profit body, it is devoted to education and upliftment of the surrounding communities which, in turn, protects the wilderness.
