The Kasiisi Project (Girls Support Program)

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. We 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.

Thanks again for your continued support. Its amazing how quickly the Girls Program has been able to scale thanks to your generous donations. Please find November's update attached in a PDF file. Also... keep an eye out for next month's update! We'll be sharing some exciting news about the scale of the peer education program (hint: more schools, more girls) and a brand new initiative to help keep girls safer at school. 

Thank you again and have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday!

The Girls Thank Nurse Lucy!

Happy September!

I thought you all would love to see a few examples of notes that some girls wrote to Nurse Lucy. They absolutely adore her and its been amazing to hear how much they trust her. Thank you again for your continued support.

$100,000 We did it!

Thank you & Congratulations...

We hit the $100,000!

What I find so amazing about this number is that it was not 10 $10,000 donations but rather, to reach $100,000, there were 2,329 unique donations. This means that the average size of donation was $42.00, and the most frequently donated amount was $30. This accomplishment is representative of each of your donations, and the power of many 'small' acts put together to create a true difference. 

I have a "real" update coming in the next few weeks when the director returns from the schools with news. Until then, enjoy the summer months and CELEBRATE!
