"A Rocha is currently working in 20 countries around the globe conducting scientific research, running hands-on conservation projects and operating environmental education programs—all in community settings and with a holistic approach to improve the wellbeing of both people and places.
A Rocha is not your typical environmental conservation organization and while projects vary around the world according to local context, needs and leadership, each seeks to benefit both people and place and is characterized by our distinct core commitments:
We are CHRISTIAN. Underlying all we do is our biblical faith in the living God, who made the world, loves it and entrusts it to the care of human society.
We conduct CONSERVATION projects. We carry out research for the conservation and restoration of the natural world and run environmental programs for people of all ages.
We live and work in COMMUNITY. Through our commitment to God, each other and the wider creation, we aim to develop good relationships both within the A Rocha family and in our local communities.
We are CROSS-CULTURAL. We draw on the insights and skills of people from diverse cultures, both locally and around the world at our 20 project locations.
Our work is done in COOPERATION. We work in partnership with a wide variety of organizations and individuals who share our concerns for a sustainable world."
