    Project #1

    Premier Vocational Institute was founded by Andrew Banyenzaki who was brought up on the boundary of Kibale National Park. Andrew is well versed with the challenges faced by people living in the area. One major problem is a lack of educational opportunities for young people in the area. To change this outcome, Premier Vocational Institute offers Skills Training Education to approximately 140 less privileged children.

    Project #2

    Rubona Primary School provides education to more than 200 children from the ages of 5 to 15, for families living on the boundary of Bwindi Impenetrable, north of Buhoma, Bwindi. Given its remote location, our goal is to work with the local community to improve education and change of mindsets to fight poverty and environmental degradation of Bwindi Impenetrable Forest.

    Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them. If you prefer, you may reach out directly to them to inquire about items which may be available for purchase locally. Arranging visits to community projects is beyond the scope of our mission. If you wish to visit a project, contact the participant and they can let you know what is possible.

    Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
    • Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
    • The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

    Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
