Gorilla Forest Camp’s parent company, Sanctuary Retreats support the Bwindi Ebenezer Primary School. The challenge of meeting the educational needs of a growing community, and establishing a new school, can be daunting for any community – and all the more challenging in one of the most remote corners of Uganda. Sanctuary Retreats are working to help the parents and teachers at the school build sufficient infrastructure including replacing the roof, building three new classrooms, building proper toilets, buying new furniture and text books, and helping to establish baseline salaries for the teachers.

Gorilla Forest Camp is proudly involved with the Bwindi Community Hospital and Victory School in the area, supporting them through various projects. A perpetual shortage of nurses has had a serious effect on the impact of the hospital, a facility that literally began under a tree a decade ago and, with the help of Gorilla Forest Camp, has grown to a 112-bed facility providing health care for 40,000 patients annually.

The Bwindi Women Bicycle Enterprise provides local women with the opportunity to earn a much-needed income while also giving their community vital access to transportation. In addition to being a viable business model, the bike shop serves as a social enterprise, setting aside a portion of the profits to be used in charitable initiatives in the community such as the school fee sponsorship of orphaned students, and investments in local health care and conservation initiatives. Sanctuary Retreats supports the initiative by restocking shipments to the bike shop on a regular basis.
