Since 2005 I have been supporting The Ruaha Conservation Fund (RCF). This NGO was founded by

Dr. Dulle, a retired senior Veterinary Officer in the Veterinary Investigation Center in Iringa, Tanzania. Dr. Dulle joined me with my work with the Friends of Ruaha Society (FORS) in 1999. He worked tirelessly with FORS, illuminating urgent village issues. He was also, among many other things, the founder of the successful Environmental Education Program.


Both Dr. Dulle and I left FORS in May 2005. As a result of this, in order that he could continue his work with the village communities adjacent to Ruaha Park, he decided to begin his own NGO - the Ruaha Conservation Fund (RCF). The programs  started by the RCF are outlined here: Ruaha Conservation Fund 2005-2016.

I fully support this Fund, which is 100 percent Tanzanian. 

Fund Details:
Registered on the 7th November 2005
Registration No: 00NGO/0509
Founder: Dr. Charles Dulle
