ANIMAL eDUCATION CENTRE
In August 2017 we opened our Animal Education Centre on the beautiful slopes of Wanale Ridge near Mbale town. We’ve named it ‘Cwmbale’ – a blend of the name Mbale and the Welsh word for valley that symbolizes our partnership.
The Centre will give hundreds of children across Mbale region the chance to learn about wildlife and conservation, especially important as many of them will grow up to become farmers. We’ve developed teaching packs and schools with PONT links have already visited.
Partnering with Uganda Wildlife Education Centre we plan to introduce larger animals this year. Over the coming years a conference centre and tourist huts will generate much-needed income to feed back into other PONT projects, helping to set up a sustainable future for life-saving work.
