About Us


Sustainable tourism has become a proven tool for conservation and development. It benefits many destinations globally. Red Rocks Initiatives for Sustainable Development is a non-profit organization operating in the wider Virunga massif of Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

It was founded in 2013 to integrate tourism, and also to find ways through which tourism not only count for or benefit travelers, but also help tourism destinations in the Virunga massif.

Red Rocks initiatives were established from the idea that tourism and conservation has the power to lift disadvantaged people living around Virunga massive out of poverty and instill in them a sense of purpose and pride.
