JOB TITLE: FINANCE ASSISTANT (1)

ORGANIZATION BACKGROUND

The Biodiversity Conservation Organization (BIOCOOR) is a legally registered Non Government Organization in Rwanda with the Legal Personality N° 777/RGB/NGO/LP/11/2021.  BIOCOOR has been created mainly by young people dedicated to act and to advocate for biodiversity conservation, ecotourism promotion, community health, environmental management, and climate change mitigation and adaptation.  The BIOCOOR headquarters are in Nyamagabe and Huye districts of the Southern Province of Rwanda. The organization geographical focus is five districts near the Nyungwe National Park plus Huye and Gisagara districts. It integrates conservation projects and sustainable economic development for the communities surrounding Nyungwe National Park. Local farmers near the Nyungwe National Park live in extreme poverty due to the acidic soil, which results in a low crop yield. Poor farming conditions have led to illegal activities, such as poaching and deforestation, as a means to survive. These activities damage the environment, so BIOCOOR is trying to preserve the forest, while simultaneously influencing the economic development of the people living near the NNP. The Organization is working toward integrating biodiversity conservation, farming, nutrition, environmental management, community health, and ecotourism, to positively affect the local economy. These practices help save the forest, too, because the resources are unharmed, and the park helps attract tourists, which creates revenue for the local communities. BIOCOOR has launched projects to promote youth entrepreneurship, safe water and sanitation practices, agro ecological practices, the removal of invasive plants that damage the forest, as well as soil improvement and composting. BIOCOOR also includes Information Communication Technology training to teach the local youth on how to use technology to communicate effectively.
