For the Communities Around Bwindi, Every Donation Counts

Donate to the Cause

Over 90% of the money needed to run CIBIC comes from partners and donor contributions. None of the work we do in Bwindi would be possible without your generous support. Our supporters trust us to use their donations wisely because we have proven to deliver on our projects and services.


We also welcome the opportunity for volunteers to come and share their skills with our staff and community. Our space for overseas volunteers is vacant. If you have skills in organic farming, fish, poultry, piggery, bees and mushroom production or fundraising skills, please email [email protected]
