    Elephant Human Coexistence BeeHive Fences: Located near Queen Elizabeth National Park, we're dedicated to coexisting with wildlife. Join us in fundraising for and installing BeeHive Fences, which provide alternative income sources for farmers through honey production, enhance crop pollination, and protect farms from elephant damage, reducing human-elephant conflicts.

    Experience the way of life in Western Uganda while making a difference. Join us for an enriching and purposeful journey!

    As noted, free accommodation is a part of the exchange. But given we need to continue to renovate the site, get gas for meals preparations, and other meals expenses, a daily contribution of $5 is requested of workways. To continue to ensure that the hosting is self-sustainable and utilities like Wi-Fi, and first aid can be offered onsite for all workways as needed. The team does its best to make your stay worth it, and this small contribution ensures you get all the needed resources during your stay as hosting can be a bit costly as you would testify. And as we have noted from hosting for over 5 years.
