Community Conservation Fund Africa

Community Conservation Fund Africa (CCFA) is a registered NPC founded in 2018, borne out of the merger between Mantis and Accor Hotels. These two global hospitality groups recognise the urgent need for community upliftment which will benefit Africa’s wild animals and wildernesses at a time
when both are under threat.

CCFA is both a fund-raising & a grant-giving organisation that is active in educating and empowering local communities to implement sustainable wildlife management systems on the ground. These solutions are funded by CCFA and its commercial partners. Community Conservation Fund Africa (CCFA) was set up to help put the spotlight on rural African communities that live among the wild animals but by large have received few benefits from this often-difficult privilege.

CCFA’s mission is to address these inequalities and investigate ways of giving rural African communities a greater role in wildlife ownership and management. We envision local African communities who are educated and empowered and can manage wild animals and
wilderness areas sustainably. We believe that this change will have a direct impact on the preservation of wild animals and wilderness areas.
