Volunteer Projects


A portion of Gatatu Safari’s earnings are contributed to the causes of Mwendo Project- a non-profit Ugandan organization established to help the poor children and orphans of Mwendo in order to gain access to education, adequate nutrition and awareness on moral values.

A non-profit Ugandan organization founded in 2005 by Richard Tusasibwe, the Managing Director of Gatatu Safaris Limited. It operates in Mwendo Parish Kabale District and was established to address a number of problems in his community, which included rape, sexual immorality, school dropout, and contraction of HIV disease.

Currently, Mwendo Needy Children and Orphans Uganda is working with 2 schools to make sure that these children get support from our program. We support a total of 700 children.

Mwendo-James Primary School- 300 children
Mwendo-James Nursey and Primary School- 600 children



Mwendo Needy children and Orphans Uganda also provide sponsorship for children in secondary school or high school. Currently there are 37 Children who are in secondary and high school levels. There are other 3 students joining the University this year.
