CSWCT’s ‘Change My Community’ (CMC) Conservation Education Program has received additional
funding from Disney Wildlife Conservation Fund. ‘We are going to establish demonstrati on projects like bee keeping, vegetable gardens and tree nurseries at Kyamaleera Wildlife Education Center (KWEC). These will be for educational purposes as well as income generating sources for the sustainability of the education center. CMC is CSWCT’s e ducation program that is geared towards identifying and equiping youths and school children with skills and knowledge to work as ‘ambassadors of change’ in their communities in order to change attitudes, behaviour and actions of people on their environment .
Private Forest Owners (PFOs) who have enrolled for the Payment for Ecosystem Project (PES) are to benefit more from their ecosystems. The project has got additional funding from Darwin Initiatives to increase on the livelihood benefits for these farmers . The PES project is a four year pilot project in western Uganda that pays Private Forest Owners in unprotected forest patches to conserve the ecosystems in their forests.
CSWCT relies on the generosity of donors, trustees and other supporters. We provide sanctuary for rescued orphaned chimpanzees at Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary. To support, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
