Mbou-Mon-Tour is a Congolese non-governmental organisation created in 1997 by Congolese academics, with the support of local communities, with the aim of protecting endangered wildlife and bonobos in particular.
Mbou Mon Tour aims to combine community-based bonobo conservation, environmental preservation and local development.
The forests in MMT’s intervention zone are threatened by various human activities, which lead to the destruction of the bonobo’s habitat and biodiversity in general.
The organisation is active in a number of areas: ecological monitoring of bonobos, poverty reduction among local populations, environmental awareness-raising and education, and management of community forests.
We are supporting the organisation of a football and Nzango (a traditional women’s sport) competition with the aim of raising awareness and uniting local communities around the protection of bonobos. Our support contributes to the financing of the equipment, the organisation of the event and the salaries of the teams. The aim is to encourage the local population to actively participate in the long term in the efforts to educate, communicate and protect the bonobos and the entire biodiversity by their day-to-day actions.
