Donors & Partners
Over 90% of the money needed to run Community Initiatives for Biodiversity Conservation comes from contributions from our donors and partners, and none of the work we do in Bwindi would be possible without their generous support. Our supporters trust us to use their donations wisely because we have proven, time and again, that we deliver on our projects and services.
