To support environmental protection efforts and promote eco-tourism in DR Congo.

Our Story

Groupe Utalii Kwetu ‘GUK’ is a Congolese initiative from the private sector (NGOs and tour operators) evolving in the tourism arena and environmental protection in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Born out of the African proverb: “If you want to go fast, go alone. But if you want to go far, go with others”, GUK members aim to combine their resources, experience, know-how and efforts with the ultimate goal to revive tourism and support environmental protection efforts in the Congo, one of lungs of the World.

2 000 000 CHILDREN WITH BOOKS ON ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AND TOURISM BY THE END OF 2023

Like Nelson Mandela, we believe that education is the greatest weapon we can use to change the world, reason why education remains our core approach to achieving our nonprofit goal. This goal is channeled through one of our programs named: Programme Utalii Kwetu and aims to reach 2 000 000 kids with books on tourism, nature conservation and environmental protection.

100 000 TREES PLANTED BY THE END OF 2023

From the air, the forests of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) stretch as far as the eye can see, broken only by distant, shining ribbons of rivers and streams. It is difficult to imagine that such vast ancient   woodlands are at risk of extinction. But they are disappearing at an alarming rate. Trees, the dominant inhabitants of the diverse and complex ecological systems called forests, are among the world’s largest and most efficient living storehouses of carbon monoxide, the “greenhouse gas” most responsible for the earth’s temperature rise and changes in the planet’s climate.

This campaign aims not only to introduce children to the culture of environmental protection and nature conservation, but also and above all to make them actively participate in the fight against climate change by planting 100,000 trees by the end of 2023.

50 VR HEADSETS (CLASSVR) IN EDUCATION FOR NATURE CONSERVATION

Reading about the rainforest can be interesting. But meeting a jaguar while hiking the Amazon brings those words to life. And although memorizing the stages of photosynthesis could mean a good test grade, diving inside a leaf to view the process firsthand will spark a future scientist.

Enhancing and extending the learning experience is what Virtual Reality can offer students, and is possibly one of the most powerful of all technologies that could help change how we learn about nature conservation and environmental protection.

1 000 000 PEOPLE SENSITIZED ON ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION BY THE END OF 2023

The goal of this campaign is to raise awareness among the general public on the importance of the environment and the threats it faces. It aims to create tangible actions and solutions to face those threats that will inevitably impact humans.

Our environmental awareness activities include:

–   Radio and television broadcasts hosted weekly by children

–    Plays on nature conservation and environment with kids (live or on air)

–      Various publications (Journal articles, books, comic books,…)
