Spreading hope by growing healthy communities and sustainable ecosystems in Africa
Working near Bwindi Impenetrable Park in southwestern Uganda, RSF is a newly formed organization whose work unites poverty alleviation and the protection of the forests on which both local people and wildlife depend.
Based on the work of Nobel-Prize-winning economist Elinor Ostrom, RSF's activiites focus on grassroots community development based on trust and cooperation. We have projects to holistically support the Batwa ("Twa") pygmy families in SW Uganda, including health, hygiene & family planning education, an Educational Soup Kitchen for the kids, and artisan co-ops to generate personal income and RSF-funds for projects. We also support a local school (Rugando Parents Primary School) through facilitating a cultural exchange with schools in the US, providing reusable menstrual pads to keep girls in school, and we helped build their 5th grade classroom. Other projects are underway!
