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.

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!

Two big updates!

Hello Wonderful Donors!!

I have two big updates.

1) The results for 2010 PLE have come in! There is no difference in results between boys and girls at the Kasiisi Project schools. The average for all schools is Boys 20.6 and the girls 20.8 The eight other schools that are included in our Conservation Education programs that get no girl's interventions the girls did significantly worse than the boys (this difference is significant p=0.03). 

2) Girls' Peer Education Program has expanded.... from 3 schools to to 13 schools! Now included in the training and participation in peer education are all five Kasiisi Project schools and the eight schools that participate in Conservation Education initiatives. 

Thank you for helping these wonderful things happen, and please think about supporting the Girls Support Program again in the future so that these 10 schools can develop into really significant and supported initiatives.

THANKS AGAIN!
