Who are the Pole Pole Foundation

The Pole Pole Foundation, POPOF, is a non-governmental organisation created by local inhabitants and those working in and around the Kahuzi-Biega National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). "Pole pole" is kiswahili, meaning “slowly”. Our holistic approach to conservation and sustainable community development means we will grow gradually to achieve our ultimate goals. We strive for long-term changes to conserve the ecological gem which is the Kahuzi-Biega National Park, and to better the livelihoods of the communities which live on its boundary.



The mission of the Pole Pole Foundation is to work with local communities to improve their prospects and ensure the long term conservation of the Eastern Lowland Grauer's gorilla. For more information click on the button below.
