About Educate Bwindi/Uganda
Educate Bwindi is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) U.S. non-profit working with sponsors and donors worldwide. We are dedicated to educating the children of Bwindi, Uganda with a focus on children who are especially vulnerable and also on those with high academic potential. We have no paid employees. Board Members who travel to work in Bwindi pay their own expenses.
As of September 2018, after working closely with the school and providing the majority of financial support for many years, we now own and operate The Bwindi Watoto School in conjunction with our sister organization, Educate Bwindi Uganda. Support for the school comes primarily from sponsorships and donations. We provide strong fiscal oversight, strategic planning and engage with problem solving at the School. We are now working on several major projects including one to build new dormitories and another to bring an innovative plan for improved education.
