Our Approach

The New Nature Foundation benefits both people and wildlife by creating grass roots initiatives that consider local context and respect the cultural norms of our constituents.

The programs actively protect wild animals and wild places and are proven to be both replicable and sustainable in the long term through continued community involvement.

The community members who engage in NNF’s programs gain pride and empowerment by achieving new skills by themselves or together with neighbors rather than merely experiencing “handouts” from visitors. By fostering skills in the people who hold the future of wild places in their hands, strides are being made toward the ultimate goal of greater harmony between people and nature.

In 2023:

Over 956,200 biomass briquettes were produced – bringing the total number of briquettes produced over 4.4 million since 2011.

759 stoves were built with Ugandan families, bringing the total number of stoves built over 5,539 since 2006.

185 stoves were built with Vietnamese families, bringing the total number of stoves built over 1,385 since 2014.

Over 58,000 in-person interactions and 2,000 virtual, bringing the total engagements to 610,000 since 2006.

We rely on the generosity of individuals like you to continue these meaningful interactions with tens of thousands of citizens each year.

All promoted technologies are easily replicable with locally available materials and aspects of NNF’s programs have already been replicated elsewhere in Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya, Madagascar and Vietnam.
