RIMBA RAYA
INITIATIVES

If we are serious about forest
conservation, we must provide
education, employment and
viable alternative land-uses
for non-renewable resource.

  • Rimba Raya provides alternative income streams through capacity building, investments in micro-finance, programs that provide basic necessities and access to a conservation model that does not put the developing world’s need for economic growth at odds with our collective desire to protect a fragile ecosystem.

  • Our initiatives meet all 17 of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, which strive to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all.
