"Change in the societies at the very bottom must come predominantly from within; we cannot impose it on them." Paul Collier
Lions exist alongside some of the poorest people in the World. Poverty and food insecurity create a reliance on natural resources that places people in direct competition with wildlife. Assisting these communities to develop in a sustainable way is therefore another vital component in our responsible development approach.
Projects seek to directly address the variety of needs of our local communities; especially vulnerable people groups such as orphans, the elderly, and those living with HIV / AIDS.
