Communities around Bwindi are struggling to cope with the orphan crisis and the costs of conservation, and do amazing work to support the most vulnerable with minimal resources - a situation described by the charity Save the Children as 'the very poor helping the destitute'.

A relatively small amount of outside support can make a huge difference.

People from around the world visit Bwindi to see mountain gorillas & other rare wildlife, and return home motivated to do something to help local people, inspired by the optimism and mutual support that they encounter.

Many more would like to find a way to provide direct support to communities living in poverty.

Together we can make a Difference

Friends of Bwindi is run entirely by volunteers working from home - which means we can use 100% of donations to directly support families and organisations in Uganda.

Friends of Bwindi aim to make your donations go as far as possible. Money goes further in Uganda and our beneficiaries have achieved a huge amount with the available funds -
