Rutooma Primary School, one of our newer schools, has won the 2018 Kasiisi Project/Kibale Forest Schools’ Program Music, Dance & Drama Competition. Competition was stiff, and they narrowly beat Kasiisi Primary School in the run-off competition.
On July 31st, our wildlife clubs celebrated Elephant Pride Day. Over 300 children from 16 forest-edge schools marched with banners and bands through nine different villages and trading centers. Children performed skits, shared poems and sang songs about elephants for audiences of almost 1,600 villagers. Representatives from the Uganda Wildlife Authority accompanied the children and fielded questions, including some tough ones about crop raiding.
The Kasiisi Project's Improved Cookstove Initiative is one of 10 finalists selected from over 200 entries to Solution Search's Climate Change needs Behavior Change competition. Two prizes of $25,000 will be awarded to the Judges' Choice (selected by Solution Search's panel) and People's Choice (recipient of most votes).
