The project replaces foraging mushrooms from the forest, thus creating an alternative sustainable food and income source outside wildlife protected areas. It recruits poor farmers mainly the ex-poachers, Batwa Pygmies, women, and youth and trains and supports them in sustainable agribusiness practices rather than rely on poaching and foraging food from the forest. The project creates good human relationships with nature, through self-sufficiency, by empowering over 3200 beneficiaries, to be self-employed, and also directly benefit from nature through selling mushrooms to lodges and a wider regional market riding on the back of booming tourism
