Since 1997, the Kasiisi Project has aided education in and around Kibale National Park in rural western Uganda, East Africa. Founded initially as a link between the research-based Kibale Chimpanzee Project and the local community, the Kasiisi Project now works with several research groups in and around the park to target critical issues for the survival of the forest and support of the local population. They support early childhood education, promote conservation and health education, provide daily school lunches, train teachers, encourage literacy through libraries and computer usage, fund secondary school and college scholarships, and address the special needs of girls. They work in 14 schools, which support 10,000 primary school children. They are a secular 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.
Our mission is to conserve Kibale National Park through programs that support education, health, and care for the environment.
