RED ROCKS MONTHLY COMMUNITY EVENTS
“A pioneering model of bringing community, conservation, and tourism together for sustainable development.”
The Red Rocks Rwanda cultural initiatives are monthly events that collectively bring community, conservation, and tourism stakeholders together for sustainable development around the Volcanoes National Park. Through these events, communities have a chance to exchangeideas and learn from one another how they can use their talents (Music, dancing, poetry, crafting etc.); culture (Food, attire, language, instrumentation etc.) and other local tools (Clay for pots baking and bricks, basket weaving, wood carving skills etc.) for development through effective sustainable planning, maximizing social and economic benefits to locals (generated income is used to build community schools, hospitals, vocational training centers etc.) and reducing tourism’s negative impact to cultural and environmental heritages. This shows that local people can reduce poverty by being creative and not depending entirely on international aid.
