Uganda closed its schools in March due to the corona virus pandemic. Since most of our work requires close face to face contact with students and teachers we had to find new ways to present our programs. Adhering to the Ugandan government's rules on COVID-19 safety we closed our offices and our staff worked from home. Using ingenuity and imagination they adapted quickly to the new constraints and have been able to continue with over half of our planned projects despite the virus, by using radio broadcasts to reach communities and by moving our programs into the villages.
The Kasiisi Project has a new website www.kasiisiproject.org and a lively new logo. A revised format, updated information, new maps and photos bring fresh life to our website, making the work we are doing in Uganda more accessible. Thanks to Eric Losh, author, illustrator and Logo designer par excellence , www.elosh.com , we also have a logo that highlights our areas of concern, Conservation, Education and Health. The lively design celebrates the children who are the primary focus of our outreach, and the color scheme pays tribute to the Ugandan flag. Eric is a good friend to Kibale and we are delighted to work with him again.

The Kasiisi Project proudly announces the winners of the 1st Annual Kibale Conservation Youth Art Contest. We asked children ages 5 to 18 to learn about Uganda’s Kibale National Park and express what they’ve learned by drawing, painting or sculpting one of the magnificent species that call the Park home. We were dazzled by the artists’ creativity, the variety of chosen wildlife, large and small, and the powerful messages that accompanied each piece.
Looking for fun and unique ways to connect kids with nature and wildlife during school closures? We’re here for help! Throughout the summer, we'll be sharing at-home activities and online learning resources to help bring Uganda's wildlife into your home.
In honor of our closest cousin in the animal kingdom, happy World Chimpanzee Day! Today is a celebration of chimpanzees and an opportunity to raise awareness about the vital need for worldwide participation in their care, protection and conservation in the wild and in captivity.
