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.
Educate Bwindi had been working closely with the school, providing the majority of its financial support for many years through sponsorships and donations. In 2018, our sister organization, Educate Bwindi Uganda, purchased the school and land. Together, we provide strong fiscal oversight, help with strategic planning and engage with problem solving. We are now working on several major projects including one, we hope, to build new dormitories and another to bring an innovative plan for improved education.
